Re: physio / massage needed (pregnancy related)

View Post
My wife is in the 5th month pregnancy. She has strong pain on upper back. She got a recommendation from the doctor to visit physiotherapy. And with this letter from doctor, insurance company will pay for it. Therefore she’s looking for real physiotherapy clinic in Zurich. (I guess insurance will not pay for massage in normal massage center).

We would really appreciate if someone knows any good clinic to recommend (better in Oerlikon area but other areas are also fine) or has any experience to share with us.

We also wonder if the physiotherapy in clinic would be a massage or more serious? Thanksss
I had similar problem during my first pregnancy and went to I went to Uster, as it was closer to where I live but they have centers everywhere, including Oerlikon and Basel (for owner of this thread).

Normally physiotherapy would be 30 min appointment and tailored to your needs. Sometimes it would a massage, other times exercises. Physiotherapist can build a program with excises tailored to your needs.

I have also went to Hirslanden, because of my back, but I was not pregnant. They have a good physiotherapists there as well.

But if you prefer a real massage, maybe something more relaxing, I find shiatsu is very good for pregnancy.
