Frequently asked questions


A back and spine specialist treats conditions that primarily affect the spine. These include herniated discs, degenerative and inflammatory diseases of the spine (e.g. spinal canal stenosis, rheumatoid arthritis), lumbago, scoliosis or trauma (vertebral fractures). Back problems that typically occur in children, adolescents and babies can also be treated by a spine specialist. The most common clinical pictures here include spondylolisthesis, postural insufficiency, muscular imbalance and prolapse.

If you suffer from persistent (longer than 3 weeks) and severe back pain that sometimes radiates into the leg, you should definitely consult a spinal specialist. A visit to a spinal specialist is also advisable if you have persistent back or neck pain after a fall or if you feel weakness or numbness in your arms, hands or legs. Balance problems and difficulties with fine motor movements can also be indications of a deeper back problem and should be checked by a specialist.

In principle, there are many specialists who can help with back problems. Therefore, if you have back pain, you should first consult your family doctor, who can refer you to the appropriate specialist. Depending on where the cause of the vertebral or back problem is suspected, patients can then consult an orthopaedist, rheumatologist, neurologist or neurosurgeon. The experienced orthopaedists and back specialists at ORTHO EINS are experts in treating back pain caused by the musculoskeletal system, i.e. bones or muscles, and offer a wide range of treatments.

At the beginning of every treatment with the spine specialists at ORTHO EINS, a thorough medical history is taken to clarify questions about previous illnesses and current back problems. This is followed by a classic physical examination, in which the posture, back muscles and mobility of the spine are checked in addition to the shape of the back. In the case of concrete suspicions, such a manual medical examination can be supplemented with imaging procedures. As soon as the cause of your back problem has been identified, the spinal specialists at ORTHO EINS will work out an individual therapy plan for you and begin treatment. By using conservative therapy methods such as physiotherapy or targeted injections, surgery can be avoided in most cases and rapid pain relief can be achieved.
