Back Pain

„Lumbago“, „intervertebral disc problems“ or „sciatica“ are all terms connected to pain in the lower back area. There are many causes for back pain, which can influence each other. Amongst these are physical factors such as behaviour or posture, as well as external, environmental influences and psychological reasons. The most common cause for back pain are degenerative changes in the spine and the intervertebral discs. Patients with posture problems such as a sway back and patients with weak musculature are affected more often.

How does back pain develop?

Back pain is caused by muscle tension. The tension hardens the muscle which in turn disturbs the surrounding nerves.

Pain therapy

The most important prerequisite for successful pain therapy is to find the cause of the pain. Therefore it is essential to describe the pain to your doctor as exactly as possible:

  • When did the pain start? Was it sudden or gradual?
  • Where is the pain located and what kind of pain is it?
  • What increases/decreases the pain?
  • Does the pain radiate to other regions of the body?
  • Is the pain accompanied by sensitivity loss, i.e. signs of paralysis?
  • Can you name a trigger for the pain?
