In brief: Sprains
Sprains/strains is the most common muscle problem. If you are looking specifically for a disease, then muscular dystrophy would be my top choice.
Depending on how you want to classify fibromyalgia, it could rank as the top disease.

In brief: Low back pain
In my practice, low back pain and neck pain of musculoskeletal origin is the most common.
Shoulder rotator cuff issues are also very common.
