Work satisfaction can be seen as a proxy for emotional or physiological health as physiotherapists (PTs) were facing high levels of occupational stress which are associated with excessive exertion that physiotherapists endure in their daily work. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between Physical Self-Concept with the job satisfaction among physiotherapists working in Saudi Arabia. The convenient, descriptive-correlation type of study design was used. Online questionnaires Physical Self-Perception Profile (PSPP) and the short form of the Minnesota satisfaction questionnaire (MSQ) were conducted through Google Form. The responses were organized in Excel and analyzed using SPSS. Demographic data (gender, age, last educational degree, total working experience, the region in which they work, and duration of working on the current job) were descriptively summarized and analyzed. Surveying 189 PTs were about their level of PSPP score (M= 65.05 and SD= 16.4) and their MSQ score (M= 69.3 and SD= 14.7). The relationship was positive, weak in strength, and statistically significant (r = 0.34, Sig < 0.05). There was a highly significant relationship between physiotherapists' physical self-concept and job satisfaction.
