Dr Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfarth
is the club doctor at Bayern Munich
and is a world leader in the treatment of sports injuries.

and Jonathan Woodgate
and other sportsmen and women such as Paula Radcliffe Kelly Holmes
and Maurice Greene
He helped cure Michael Owen's hamstring problems in time to play at the Euro 2000 tournament and has also helped Owen's Liverpool F.C. and England colleague, Steven Gerrard and Harry Kewell .
Darren Gough and Alex Tudor , Essex cricketers, have benefited from the German doctor's pioneering treatments.
José María Olazábal , the 1994 US Masters golf champion was suffering from the crippling effects of rheumatoid arthritis when he visited Muller-Wolfhart but was able to win at Augusta again in 1999.
Rugby World Cup winner Will Greenwood is another who has benefited from the doctor's treatment after 8 months with a groin problem. Weeks later he was staking a claim to a recall to the England team.
Many of the German doctor's treatments are controversial, including using injections of a substance called Hylart, extracted from the crest of cockerels, which is claimed to help lubricate knee injuries and take away the pain. He has also injected honey or calves' blood in to patients.
