Abstract

Background: The relationship between OA and frailty has been demonstrated by several longitudinal studies, showing that these two conditions share important common risk factors and lead to similar consequences, but if and how OA-related pain, in particular, is linked to frailty is unclear.Aim: To study the association of frailty with osteoarthritis in community dwellers. Materials and Methods: 15 Participants were selected between age group of 40-70 and were
assessed. Participants were assessed for osteoarthritis according to Kellgren and Lawrence system of classification, and frailty was assessed using frailty index and scores were obtained after answering questions. Results: Mean age of participants was 56.93. Mean BMI for participants was 22.2. Out of 15 participants, 8 males and 7 females were present. Speraman rank correlation test was done to find the correlation between two variables . Conclusion: Results showed that there was a positive correlation between osteoarthritis and frailty.
