MSDs can be the result of a quick exertion (e.g., lifting a large object), repetitive strain, or constant exposure to force, vibration, or awkward posture. Objectives: To determine musculoskeletal pain disorder patients’ adherence to home-based physiotherapy program in the outpatient musculoskeletal department at CRP, Savar.

The Adherence in Chronic Diseases Scale (ACDS) were used to assess the adherence level to physiotherapy treatment among 200 participants.

Results: Among 200 participants, most of the participants were “medium adherent” to physiotherapy treatment 46.0% (n=92), 39.0% (n=78) were “high adherent” and 15.0% (n=30) were “low adherent”. Although this study found a significant association between age and adherence to physiotherapy treatment; marital status and adherence to physiotherapy treatment; timely arrival for physiotherapy treatment and adherence to physiotherapy treatment.
