Chronic Kidney disease and end stage renal disease have become worldwide major public health problems. The prevalence of ESRD cases in India was 700,000 in 2004 and its incidence rate was 173 per100, 000 people these conditions increase patient’s morbidity and mortality risks and put major economic strain on the health scare system. The study was aimed to find out the effectiveness of muscle stretching exercise on Quality of life of haemodialysis patients. A Quantitative research approach with Times Series Research design was used for the study to assess the effectiveness of muscle stretching exercise on Quality of Life of Haemodialysis patients. The study was conducted in Dialysis unit of selected Multi speciality Hospital. Simple Random sampling technique was used to assign the samples for experimental and control group in the study. Data was collected from 86 Chronic Kidney Disease patients undergoing haemodialysis. The Quality of Life Questionnaire was used measure the magnitude of the Quality of Life. The result of the study shows that in baseline the Quality of life mean score was 0.59 and after a week of muscle stretching exercise implementation the mean score was reduced to 0.34. In quality of life questionnaire lower the score higher the quality of life. Intervention was found to be significantly (p.≤0.05) effective in improvement of Quality of Life of the haemodialysis patients, whereas there was no significant change found in the control group. Continuous muscle stretching exercise will promote the quality of Life of the haemodialysis patients and help to maintain their optimum wellbeing
