Abstract

Background: Menopausal period is the period where women’s life goes into tremendous emotional as well as many physiological changes. One of the big change is her bone mass that is bone mineral density. In menopausal women the bone mineral density level is reduces due to deficiency of estrogen level , so the mobility became harden for them & the chances of postmenopausal osteoporosis is increases with the faulty bone development which increases the risk of fractures of forearm , vertebrae’s ,hip & spine. Objectives: The study objectives were (1) To assess the clinical parameters among the menopausal women attending orthopaedic OPD of selected hospitals in Mumbai.. (2) To find out the association between demographic variables with selected clinical parameters among the menopausal women attending orthopaedic OPD of selected hospitals in Mumbai. Methodology: The research method adopted for the present study is the quantitative approach. The researcher adopted the descriptive exploratory research design among menopausal women attending orthopaedic OPD of selected corporation hospitals in Mumbai .Researcher used non-probability purposive sampling technique where researcher has taken 150 menopausal women as a samples. Data collected by measuring samples clinical parameters. Participant’s responses was calculated and expressed as frequency and percentage. Selected clinical parameters was calculated and expressed as frequency and percentage. Association between demographic variables with selected clinical parameters analyzed by using chi-square. Results: The results showed that in assessment of selected clinical parameters among the menopausal women in according to height that 43.33% women had height between 160 cm to 165 cm , according to weight 50.66% women had weight between 51-56 kg, according to BMI that 84% women had BMI 18.5- 24.9 & according to BMD that 83.33% women had between -2.5 & below. The finding reveals that the calculation of chi-square value of marital status (7.28).Hence chi square values were more than the table values at the level of 0.05, hence it is interpreted that the marital status has significant association with the clinical parameter of BMD level of menopausal women. The other calculations of age, education,occupation, socioeconomic status, dietary pattern did not demonstrate the association between the BMD levels of the menopausal women. Therefore, the null hypothesis is rejected and the alternative hypothesis is accepted that the BMD level and chosen demographic variables are significantly associated.
