Abstract The researcher conducted a study on effectiveness of Muscle strengthening exercises on joint pain among the late middle age group in Bordowali Health and Wellness Centre, Agartala, West Tripura. Objectives: The objectives of the study were to assess the pre-existing level of joint pain among the late middle age group, to evaluate the effectiveness of Muscle strengthening exercises on joint pain among the late middle age group, and to find out the association between pre-existing level of joint pain among the late middle age group with their selected demographic variables. Method: The present study’s conceptual framework was based on Modified Wiedenbach’s Helping Art of Clinical Nursing Theory (1964). A quantitative evaluative research approach, pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test research design and purposive sampling technique were used for the study. Data collection: Data were collected from 40 late middle age group through interview technique by administering the socio-demographic proforma and Modified pain scale on joint pain, stiffness and quality of life. Active Muscle strengthening exercises were provided as an intervention for 35 minutes daily for 20 consecutive days. On 20th day, post-test was taken through interview technique by administering the Modified pain scale on joint pain, stiffness and quality of life. Result: The result showed that the mean post-test level of pain score of joint pain among the late middle age group (34.27±12.94) was lower than the mean pre-test level of pain score (63.15±16.92) with mean difference of 28.88. Paired ‘t’ test value (8.59) was also found significant at 0.05 level of significance (df=39, table value=2.02). Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) ‘F’ value showed there was a significant association between pre-test level of joint pain among the late middle age group with their selected demographic variables - type of family [‘F’ value=3.86, table value=3.23, df between group – 2, within group – 37], total number of family members staying with you [‘F’ value=3.31, table value=3.23, df between group – 2, within group – 37], duration of suffering from joint pain [‘F’ value=5.52, table value=3.23, df between group – 2, within group – 37] which were significant at 0.05 level of significance. Conclusion: The findings of the present study concluded that Muscle strengthening exercises were an effective measure to reduce the level of joint pain among the late middle age group.
