GroupII(Control group – Naturopathic and yogic treatments). Every subject were assessed for pain, disability, assessed through visual analogue scale (VAS) scale, Western Ontario and Mac Master universities scale (WOMAC) scale, Quality of life (QoL) and range of motion baseline following 10 days. Results: The results showed significant difference in visual analogue scale (VAS), Western Ontario and Mac Master universities scale (WOMAC), Quality of life (QoL) and range of motion in Group 1. The overall comparison between the groups was done by using Man Whitney U test which showed significant difference in VAS scale (p<0.00). In rest of the variables there were no statistically significant changes in both the groups. Conclusion: The study result suggests that both control and intervention group could be considered as an effective remedy in patients with OA.
