Aim of the study: The study aims to find the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in older adult subjects with knee osteoarthritis pain. Material and methods: A cross-sectional, telephonic study was done on knee osteoarthritis subjects above 50 years of age. Socio-demographic scales and details,(ShalliBavoria, et al., 2020) i.e., WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index), SF-12 (Short Form survey), PHQ-9 (Patient Health Questionnaire) et al were applied( Soo-Hyun Park and Byeong-Hun Kang., 2020). Information was retrospectively compiled and a semi-structured proforma was selected to gather the clinical variables. Results: Results were identified by domains of Health related quality of life.Results showed that there is significant difference in general health related quality of life based on the KL grading of KOA.(P=0.02,P=0.04)Study concluded that general HRQoL worsens with higher grading of KOA.The results showed that there was a substantial discrepancy witnessed between males and females where females encountered more pain.As stiffness increases HRQoL decreases. More severity of pain was observed in depressed people.(Roger B. Fillingim, et al., 2020) Conclusion: Daily challenges and actions, of which some may be unusual to sufferers in a pastoral setting in India, underlie sedentary and effective strategies to Osteoarthritis and its control. The study concluded that a significant difference in pain and general quality of life-based on the KL grading of KOA (P=0.02, P=0.04) was observed.(Hye-Young Shim, etal, 2018) It was also found that there is a considerable difference in pain based on the duration of ]knee osteoarthritis (P=0.05).( Aliasghar A.
