Whether lumbago, low back pain or a back that "closes up". No matter how back pain occurs, it is always unpleasant and painful. Everyday things like climbing stairs, standing or sitting for long periods of time and even lying down can be a real challenge for sufferers. A carefree life is often out of the question and the quality of life is severely impaired. 

Many people delay seeing a physiotherapist for a long time because of a lack of time or because they tell themselves that the pain will eventually go away on its own. However, physiotherapy can relieve back pain and help to alleviate this pain in the long term. In this article, I explain why and how physiotherapy can help you cope with back pain. 

Why should you definitely see a physiotherapist for back pain?

There are countless types of back pain. Sharp, pulsating or dull pain and pain that spreads to other parts of the body. Often the back pain is so severe that sufferers can only get through everyday life with the help of medication. However, this is not a permanent solution. 

Physiotherapy treatments such as physiotherapy, manual therapy and massage can help relieve your back pain in the long term - without the need for medication. Sufferers tend to avoid all movement in order to protect their back. However, it is very important to stay active to maintain or even improve mobility and strength.  

How does the treatment work in our practice?

First, we talk about the nature and intensity of your pain during an initial consultation. Then you will be examined in detail so that I can determine the origin of your back pain and help you in the best possible way. After the thorough anamnesis, I will draw up a treatment plan for you that is precisely tailored to you and your back problems . Your well-being is my top priority. 

The treatment in our physiotherapy practice consists of passive exercises performed by me or one of my colleagues and active exercises on your part. It is important that you keep moving and do not strain your back too much so that your mobility and strength remain.

In our physiotherapy practice, we show you exercises that help to relieve your back pain and at the same time protect your body from developing new pain. The exercises are individually adapted to the nature of your pain. Stretching exercises, strengthening exercises and endurance training will strengthen your back muscles, relieve tension and promote your mobility. 

Passive treatments carried out by us physiotherapists help to release tension, treat muscle adhesions and mobilise joints. We use various treatment techniques for this:

  • Manual therapy: The aim of us physiotherapists is to correct malpositions with the help of manual therapy. The therapy should help to restore your back to its original range of motion.

  • Massage: Through massage we aim to relieve your tension and at the same time stimulate blood circulation to counteract renewed tension and back pain. 

You no longer want to suffer from your pain? Standing, lying and sitting should no longer be a painful challenge for you? Then don't wait any longer and actively do something about your back pain! My colleagues and I at Physiotherapie Körtner will be happy to help you.
