Physiotherapeutic telerehabilitation in various musculoskeletal and internal diseases, including back pain, might be comparable to face-to-face rehabilitation or better than non-rehabilitation. In Germany, a standardized back school for patients with chronic back pain is provided in outpatient rehabilitation centers. The effectiveness of this standardized back school was shown in a randomized controlled trial in face-to-face rehabilitation. This study examines non-inferiority of a hybrid rehabilitation applying a digital version of the standardized back school against a rehabilitation applying the face-to-face back school.
