Days lost due to such disorders account for 9 percent of the total number of all working days lost. Every year, nearly 60 percent of adult Poles report temporary health issues or chronic diseases of this kin. Middle or lower back pain and neck pain are among the six most frequent complaints. In response to the such needs, Medicover Hospital invests in orthopaedics and launches a Rehasport Clinic which will complement the range of medical services offered in Wilanów near Warsaw.

This approach is made possible by a team of nearly fifty physicians, physiotherapists and biomechanics with top qualifications and extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic disorders and injuries.
