The book and the course Ursula’s book ‘Back Pain Goodbye’ is a wonderful guide to helping anyone who is interested in reducing back pain without pills or potions. It is an excellent guide to finding the exercises that work for your body to strengthen your back and reduce pain.

I was fortunate enough to also participate in a course that Ursula ran on back pain. The course followed the guide in her book. Following her book ( and her supporting course ) has resulted in my back being more comfortable than it has been for 20 years! I am very grateful to Ursula for sharing her knowledge through her handy little book.

In March 2018 Monash University released a statement:

Ground-breaking research warns, “that low back pain is a major health burden globally – across developed and developing nations – and that the current use of X-rays and scans, opioids, injections and surgery to investigate and treat the condition is useless, unnecessary and harmful.” (1)

questions to physio Ursula knecht

Are you suffering from lower back pain? Do you want to know how to treat lower back muscle pain and how to relieve lower back stiffness?

You might also have questions like sacroiliac joint pain (si joint pain), or you are concerned about a bulging disc in your lower back?

Trust me, and lower back pain can feel overwhelming, frustrating, depressing, and very limiting in daily life.

But first things first, WHY should you listen to what I have to say? There are so many «youtube experts»  that want to sell you all kinds of stuff that is mainly expensive but whether research-proven nor helpful!

Yes, I have walked in your shoes, I have struggled with low back pain over many years, and this is exactly why the solution I can offer is not only anecdotal (from my own experience); it is also supported by 86 different studies.

But, let’s start at the beginning; how did I, as a 23-year-old fit woman, get into the chronic low back pain loop?

It all started on a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon in Switzerland, and a pushbike rider that drover over a Stop sign.

My motorbike tilted, and  I hit the ground. (You can read the full story in my book). My right knee was injured, and I had to walk on crutches for endless long weeks.

Keep in mind that before this, I was a massage therapist, hence working physically and also going to the gym, lifting heavy weights 3-5 x/ week, so I was indeed very fit and strong.

Hindside,- of course, I know and understand what all went wrong. Just one thing, muscles are declining in strength and flexibility at a swift pace as soon as we are resting.

«Muscles waste away very fast (1%-1.5% per day), increasing lower back stiffness and pain while reducing daily life abilities. In the first week of immobilisation, the decline in muscle strength can be 40%.» (1)

The longer I was on crutches, and of course, did not continue going to the gym, the weaker I got overall, and then my back pain started. Fron was initially more acute to eventually chronic low back pain as my odyssey from doctor to x-rays and so call d expert went on…

They all «pretended» to know the answer for my back pain, but their advice from more rest to avoiding lifting over 2kg was NOT helpful; instead made my back pain worse, and even just a short walk tightened up my sacroiliac joint and my lower back muscles.

Hence, all these doctors and experts were not helping to state the obvious, following their advice of rest and reduced loading made my back and my body feel much worse.

Then, I started my physio education;

 fortunately, I could lie on a mat and sit on a physio ball as I could not sit on a chair for a lengthy period.

I learned how to treat lower back muscle spasms during my physio education, which helped to reduce my back pain.

We also learnt ”how to relieve lower back pain stretches,” which I performed regularly, effectively reducing muscle spasms and low back pain.

The four years of physio education were the start of my way out of chronic back pain and back to life.

My life looked quite typical from the outside now; I was able to work and had no problems with activities of daily living.

There was still stiffness in my lower back when I was standing or sitting for longer, and I could not run.

Hence, I got some more studies under my belt, first studying biomechanics and manual therapy to become a musculoskeletal physiotherapist. This provided me with specific exercises of the deep joint supporting muscles. And self-mobilisation exercises to relieve lower back ache.

We learned basic exercises in the four years of becoming a physio, but this was not enough to get me back to a fulfilled life, including running and helping athletes rehabilitate back to their sport.

I noticed that my physio colleagues and I could only get our clients to a certain level, the level I had reached with what I had learned so far, but there was that crucial missing part.

I was fortunate enough to find another excellent post-graduation course to become a Sports Physiotherapist (IAS). During these two years of training, I soaked up all the knowledge to rehabilitate myself and my clients back to full sport and fitness levels.

Finally, after ten endless years living with limitations and pain,  I got my life back!

How rewarding to have the knowledge and self-experience to help people get their life back. Back to pain-free function. No surgery needed, no pain medication necessary!

It took me another 16 years until I found the urge to share my knowledge with the world and not just keep it as a «secret tool kit» in my physio clinic.

After thirty months of further research and study, I wrote a book in a language that I learned at 40 years old.

A self-help guide that gets you to step out of back pain back to a fulfilled life.

This book is written in easily understandable English and guides you out of pain back to life.

It has two main parts, the first part is more about understanding pain, understanding the brain etc, and the second part with many pictures is the 12 weeks exercise program.

You can choose the support level that works for you, those programs and support levels can individually be adjusted to your personal needs.

So, don’t hesitate and decide right now that today is the day you are starting to reclaim your life.
