 In the present study, we examined the factors associated with Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) among elderly orthopedic rehabilitation outpatients. This study included 91 elderly outpatients. We evaluated physical function and performance in comprehensive activities of daily living (ADL: including basic ADL and instrumental ADL) and administered a 36-item Short-Form Health Survey Version 2.0 (SF-36v2) to analyze their relevance to HRQOL. Results showed that difficulty in comprehensive ADL was significantly correlated with most of the SF-36v2 sub-items. In addition, the number of areas where pain was experienced was significantly correlated with most of the SF-36v2 sub-items, and was significantly associated with physical function, bodily pain, and general health in the multiple regression analysis. The results indicate that pain affects not only body functions and structure levels, but also activities and participation levels, thereby affecting HRQOL. Therefore, occupational therapists aiming to improve HRQOL seem to be required to perform evaluations and interventions that consider the difficulties in comprehensive ADL and the number of areas where pain is experienced.
