Background and Objective: This study was done to The effect of a period Stretching training on functional dynamic balance performance and range of motion patients with knee osteoarthritis.

Methods: Population includes active older men with knee osteoarthritis in West Azerbaijan. 20 active man who paid at least twice a week to exercise, into two groups of 10 patients were randomly divided. Subjects for 8 weeks, three times a week program performed. To measure the functional dynamic balance of the three tests were used, and goniometer was used to measure the range of motion of the knee. To analyze the data, independent t-test was used for evaluating the results of the between groups, and Paired t tests was used to check the results from the within the groups. Cohen's d-test was used to estimate the effect size.

Results: Results of this study showed that, Comparison within groups, Get Up and Go test (s) (p = 0.001), knee Range of motion, 30- Second Chair stand (the number) and Agility 8 foot time up and go for the elderly (s) (p = 0.0001) was a significant difference in the Experimental group. In comparison between groups Get Up and Go test (s) (p = 0.049), knee Range of motion, 30- Second Chair stand (the number) and Agility 8 foot time up and go for the elderly (s) (p = 0.0001) there was a significant difference.

Conclusion: The Stretching training significantly improves functional dynamic balance and range of motion in active older men with knee osteoarthritis.
