Back Pain and Spine Issues Zug/Zuerich

Hi All,

I am new to Switzerland. I have a bad back - MRI about 8 years ago showing fatty discs at bottom of back. Despite exercising every day the pain is getting worse. I figure I need another MRI and not sure of the plan from there.
Can anyone suggest what is the most cost effective and efficient way of attacking this and who best to go to in the Zug and south lake Zuerich region? I am dubious about going to any old GP who will probably just agree with me about an MRI being needed - Can I go directly to a hospital here for an MRI? Which hospitals are best? Or is there a very good physio who might know another way?

Thanks for your help

Michael

Hi,

I pulled the muscles in my back yesterday and went to Dr Narozny at the Sport Clinic Zürich ( http://www.sportclinic.ch/sports_med....php?content=9 ).

These guys are covered by your Health Insurance.

Cheers,
Nick

Hi Michael,
I went to Dr. Gerritsen in Zug, and he helped me immensely
with my back problems. His clinic is right in the Zug Bahnhof on
the second floor.

He has also helped a friend of mine.

I like both a lot
