Looking for recommendations for anyone that can treat muscular/lower back pain in Zürich, without costing a fortune?!

Re: Lower Back Pain massage/treatment

What do you consider a fortune?

From the brief survey I did when looking for physiotherapy options, 'Heilungsmassage', for pain alleviation, seems to run about CHF 60-75 per 25 minute session. Expect the massage to last ca 15 minutes or so.

If your GP or other doctor prescribes physiotherapy massage, the cost of 9 sessions is usually covered by the Krankenkasse. (Some possible exceptions, as always..)

If you do not have a Verordnung from your GP or other doctor, the cost is on you.

As for other treatments: There are many options, what is right for you would be a discussion with your GP or other doctor.

A couple of my friends speak highly of the Balgrist clinic:

(This is one of the highly respected clinics in Zürich. Not inexpensive, cost according to Tarmed points as any medical provider here. But much ought to be picked up by the KK.)

I believe you need a referral from your GP.

Hope you find the treatment you need.
