OCM Orthopädische Chirurgie München, based in the south of Munich, has specialised on treating patients that suffer from illnesses and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The doctors’ main goal is to give patients an overall treatment on the highest medical level and out of one hand – from diagnostics to surgery, from minimally invasive therapy to rehabilitation. Maybe one of the most common illnesses of today’s life are related to our back, neck, breast and lumbar vertebrae. It is indeed a widespread disease: According to one of Germany’s main health insurers, back injuries were responsible for more than 60 million work absences in 2015. Not all of them are related to accidents, many are the result of natural abrasion, overstretched ligaments or tense muscles.
