Musculoskeletal exercise and physical training are important activities with multiple health advantages; nonetheless, injuries sustained during physical training are a major issue in the military. Injuries significantly impact society and people serving in the military because they prevent people from going to work, participating in training, preparing for battle, and doing regular tasks. To examine the potential link between the duration and intensity of physical exercise and sports injuries among Saudi Arabian military students. Authors surveyed the military students of the year 2021 as part of a cross-sectional observational study. SPSS was used for the data analysis. Stress fractures in the pelvic and thigh regions were among the injuries assessed in a study of 73 military students. The study was approved in 2022 by the King Fahad Security College Studies and Research Centre, with approval number A-1-43. The study found no significant relationship between course duration and fracture type (p = .165), indicating that the type of physical activity was the main effect. Also, each kilogram increase in weight at the date of seeking treatment increased the likelihood of the participant having a stress fracture in the pelvic region and thigh by 1.174 times compared with a stress fracture in the lower leg. The type of physical activity might have a major role in determining the types of injuries, while the duration of the activity had no effect. We recommend future research to examine other risk factors for fractures and include other military schools.
