Back problems today
Did you know that only two percent of all back problems require surgery?
According to today’s knowledge, the combination of physiotherapy and training in an individual setting is the therapy of choice for almost all back complaints.
Movement and physiological stress are very important for our backs, as intervertebral discs and joints are nourished primarily by movement.
50-80% of people between 30 and 60 have wear and tear on lumbar discs and vertebral segments and don’t even know it.
Wear and tear on the spine and musculoskeletal system is normal and does not have to be accompanied by discomfort. This is comparable to wrinkling of the skin.
