The result showed that there is a significant difference between pre-test-posttest strength measurement with P value (0.003<0.05). A significant difference between pre and posttest of all kinds of movement flexibilities is with the P value < 0.05. There is a strong correlation between combine massage and physiotherapeutic to the chronic knee, knee, and ankle with r>0.5.
