AIM OF THE STUDY: The article examines how big German insurance companies handle back pain in terms of occupational health management (OHM).
METHODOLOGY: Narrative interviews with experts from 8 out of the 20 biggest enterprises were conducted.
RESULTS: Musculoskeletal diseases are the number one or number two reason for sick leave. All enterprises offer OHM; there is a variety of measures, e.?g., sport, massage, advice, ergonomics, healthy food and leadership training. The measures are hardly ever evaluated.
DISCUSSION: The literature is controversial whether or which OHM measures are effective. In our sample few measures were evaluated; for more evidence based treatment this should be changed.
