Actually, the good news is that 90% of all backache goes away again of its own accord after a while. But this is no good to those who are suffering acute pain: they need help quickly. Physiotherapists are right at the top of the list of those who can help with back problems. But it is often difficult to get an appointment, or certainly not one that you can fit in around your working hours. Online programmes can be a good alternative. They are developed by physiotherapists and help to prevent and palliate back complaints.
Specific physiotherapy can help you to help your back and improve your mobility. Special online training programmes developed by physiotherapists make it possible to train everywhere at any time. Due consideration is given to your personal fitness condition and objectives in order to find the most suitable training variations.
After all, strong muscles and greater agility are the be-all and end-all for back health. No medication and no other therapy can compare with the positive effects of specific exercise programmes.
And here's the really good news: statutory health insurance funds frequently reimburse most or all of the costs, as long as the courses are certified to German regulation §20 SGB V. Ask your health insurance fund about cost reimbursement details.
All those who want to become or remain active can now use back prevention courses that are available online everywhere and at all times. Developed by physiotherapists, they aim to strengthen and mobilise the locomotor system for everyday use. Experienced experts offer specific guidance through the online training.
They ensure that all exercises are explained in readily understood fashion and demonstrated with videos. Before the exercises begin, the programme checks whether you can cope safely with the training. Video instructions introduce the exercises, kick-off and final surveys keep records of training achievements and video consulting sessions offer an opportunity to ask the experts for specific advice.
All those who would like additional physiotherapeutic support during back training may want to consider a certified back prevention course where individual sessions are provided under the guidance of physiotherapists.
Some courses for example consist of ten sessions with the first and last training session being held in a cooperating physiotherapy centre. Here you will be given the access data for the online back prevention course during the first exercise session. Fundamental aspects of the exercises and any other questions can be discussed with the physiotherapists. You can complete the other exercise sessions in any place of your choice, for example at home, in the park or in the office.
Preferably, the final training session should be held in your local cooperating physiotherapy centre again. In this way, you can receive personal feedback after the course, and also discuss further training measures if you so wish.
If you want to work in a more concerted way at your backache, you can also take out a three-month subscription, for example. Here the back exercises are coordinated individually to your specific needs.
The first appointment should again take place locally in a physiotherapy centre cooperating with the provider. Here experienced physiotherapists will perform a physical check-up and ask about your medical key data. The findings are then used by therapists to put together an individual, tailor-made training plan with corresponding exercise videos. A course leader accompanies the three-month training process and can deal with any queries during video consulting sessions.
