Actively combat back pain
Back pain can have various causes. In cases of non-specific back pain, an interaction of different factors is usually assumed as the trigger: serious physical strain, an unfavorable posture, and weak muscles can play a role, as well as stress and psychological strain. If there are several causes, it’s not enough to address only one area – what you need is a comprehensive approach. Which is exactly what Bauerfeind’s back therapy provides: it combines several established treatment measures that, together, are designed to strengthen your back and alleviate pain – in the long term.
Combat your back pain – but not without your physician
Speak to your physician about multimodal back therapy and discuss whether, and how, you can integrate the individual modules into your everyday life. To prepare effectively for this talk, and so your physician can get detailed information about your specific problems, we’ve compiled a checklist for you: simply complete it, take it to your consultation, and discuss it with your physician.
The advantages of comprehensive back therapy
As with many aspects of life, the same applies in cases of back pain: variety is key. A comprehensive approach that is based on different elements and can therefore purposefully address the numerous causes of the pain is essential for successful treatment. Please ask your physician whether you can incorporate the therapy components into your current treatment – or ask first before starting Bauerfeind’s back therapy.
In order to get rid of pain and strengthen your back in the long term, we’ve designed the individual modules in such a way that you can easily integrate them into your everyday life so these measures can become habits without hassle. Plus: depending on severity, a support or orthosis will provide you with additional help. And with the Bauerfeind Training App, you’ll receive a personalized training program, specifically for your product – to ensure comprehensive back therapy all in one place.

How supports or orthoses can help with your back therapy
As you’ve found out from the individual modules, your back needs a lot of things: increased activity during everyday life, stability, as well as kinesiotherapy, and, in turn, less stress, strain, and pain, as well as the avoidance of incorrect posture. In all this, a support or orthosis can help you, in consultation with your physician. These medical products stabilize and relieve your back, they encourage a healthy posture, can alleviate pain, and help you get active again. They have been designed to be comfortable – not only during training but also during everyday activities.
Which product is suitable for you will depend on your specific situation. Have a look at our range, then seek advice from a physician or medical supply retailer about what you’ve decided.
