      Objective. To determine the incidence and risk factors to the non-adherence to physiotherapy treatment in patients with pain and musculoskeletal disorders attending a Teaching Clinic in Lima, Peru. Material and Methods. Retrospective cohort study, it included all new patients seen by pain and skeletal muscle disorders in period 2012-2014. Non adherence was measure (less than 8 sessions attended) and demographic factors. We calculated crude and adjusted relative risk (aRR). Results. We included 549 patients,: 68,3% women, 37,2% had 60 or more years , the most frequent injuries were located on the legs (34,2%) and lumbar (24,6%). We found an incidence of non-adherence of 56,4% (95% CI: 52,2 to 60,7%) and was associated to reside away from the clinic (aRR:1,34; 95%CI: 1,16 to 1,57) and less than 40 years (aRR: 1,27; 95%CI:1,04 to 1,54). Conclusion. There is a high incidence of non-adherence to physiotherapy related to distance and age of patients, so it must find strategies to increase adherence.
