Abstract
Background and Aims: A musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) is one of the most common disorders worldwide. It includes a wide spectrum of degenerative and inflammatory diseases. The aim of this study is to establish and compare the prevalence of MSD in different anatomical sites in physical therapy clinic at Najran University.

Methods: This is a retrospective study. We retrieved the diagnosis of 1211 referrals made over a three-year period between January 2015 until September 2018.

Results: After filtration of the 1211 referrals, 851 were specifically included in this study and out of these, 779 were for a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). Low back pain (LBP) was the most referred case to the clinic 244 (31.3%) and knee joint was the second-most referred disorder with 230 cases (29.5%). There was a significant association between age and affected anatomical site [χ2 = 145.09, df = 70, Cramer’s V= 0.19, p < 0.001].

Conclusion: MSD is a very common disorder and needs more attention. In the physical therapy clinic in Applied Medical Sciences College at Najran University, LBP and knee joint disorder are more prevalent than other MSD disorders. There is a significant association between age and affected anatomical sites of MSD.
