A recent study has demonstrated that a physical therapist directed exercise program did not result in greater reductions in disability and pain when compared to a home exercise program. However, no manual therapy procedures were incorporated into the physical therapy treatment program despite recent evidence suggesting that thrust and non-thrust manual therapy techniques may be beneficial in reducing disability, pain and improving gait. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of a physical therapy management approach consisting of manual therapy and exercise to a home program of exercise only. The investigators hypothesize that the group receiving manual therapy and exercise will have better outcomes.
