  1. * these numbers refer to either the single diagnosis, or to cases with the relevant MSD as main diagnosis but with possibly other co-diagnoses (multiple diagnoses); ** in case of a cell entry "--", there were too small case numbers (<5) for analyzing the data without violating the data protection act; therefore mean outpatient and inpatient treatment costs for a single diagnosis could not be derived for all ICD-10 codes included in this analysis.
  2. ICD-10 codes: M40: kyphosis and lordosis, M41: scoliosis; M42: spinal osteochondrosis; M43: other deforming dorsopathies; M45: ankylosing spondylitis; M46: other inflammatory spondylopathies; M47: spondylosis; M48: other spondylopathies; M49: spondylopathies in diseases classified elsewhere; M50: cervical disc disorders; M51: other intervertebral disc disorders; M53: other dorsopathies, not elsewhere classified; M54: dorsalgia
