  17 patients, both male & female, from 5-80 yrs old, with arthralgia of the knee were given 30-45 minutes of reflexology daily for 10 sessions. The reflex areas worked on were knee, liver, 3 cm above the external malleolus in the feet, upper and lower lymph glands, parathyroid and spleen. Eleven of the patients recovered completely, 4 improved, and 2 had no results.



Foot reflexology was shown to have some success in relieving knee arthralgia; particularly acute cases without other complications.
