Your back – an overview

The back (or vertebral column) extends from your head to your pelvis and is comprised of a column of bones separated and cushioned by intervertebral discs.

Your vertebral column has many functions, including (but not limited to):

Strength and Support: it helps to carry the weight of your body above the pelvis
Protection: it surrounds and protects your spinal cord, preventing damage to it
Movement: along with associated muscles, ligaments and tendons your spine helps you with movement and posture

The structure of your spine means that it has a good deal of strength and stability, but it is still susceptible to damage or injury by a number of means. Any damage or injury in your back can cause severe pain and serious consequences.

Sometimes a problem in the back can cause nerve (neurological) issues, if a nerve is affected. This can present as pain, weakness or loss of feeling in certain parts of the body.

Other times, you may be trying to recover from recent spinal surgery and finding it a big challenge.

Recovering from a back problem – whether from injury or following surgery – can be challenging, often requiring specialised rehabilitation. That’s where Circle Rehabilitation can help.

The back rehabilitation problem

While many people who have a back problem can recover fairly quickly, sometime more intensive therapy will be required to help to regain lost strength and mobility. This rehabilitation can involve physiotherapy, exercise and the use of specialised therapeutic equipment.

Unfortunately though, due to the ever-increasing demand on resources in the healthcare system, many people who require it can find themselves waiting days or weeks to receive any form of specialised rehabilitation for their back. (This can of course mean additional days or weeks of debilitating back pain and reduced mobility that you just don’t need.)

Our priorities for you

At Circle Rehabilitation in Reading, Berkshire, our two priorities with your back rehabilitation are to:

  • Provide you with the best combination of specialised back rehabilitation therapy possible
  • To support you emotionally and physically through your rehabilitation, and to enable you to achieve the best recovery of function achievable

Do I need back rehabilitation?

Often, being able to access the right rehabilitation following an injury or operation to the back can make a real difference to the extent of your recovery and long-term function.

Although some people will recover quickly from a back problem , some will need more intense therapy and support to help them regain their independence.

If you’re trying to recover from a serious back injury or operation and are now finding it hard to function physically, effective and focused fracture rehabilitation (sometimes also referred to as back rehab) can be a major factor in helping you to adjust, adapt, recover and regain a level of independence for yourself.

That’s why we set up…

Circle Rehabilitation – providing world-class back rehabilitation in a purpose-designed centre

Circle Rehabilitation is a state-of-the-art world class rehabilitation centre designed with just one aim in mind – to give people like you their independence back following a back injury or operation as quickly as possible.

We know that if you’re experiencing problems with your back you’ll be anxious about the future (and possibly also concerned about being an additional burden on those you love if you’re now a lot less mobile than you were previously).

Often, being able to access the right rehabilitation following an injury or operation to the back can make a real difference to the extent of your recovery and long-term function.

Although some people will recover quickly from a back problem , some will need more intense therapy and support to help them regain their independence.

If you’re trying to recover from a serious back injury or operation and are now finding it hard to function physically, effective and focused fracture rehabilitation (sometimes also referred to as back rehab) can be a major factor in helping you to adjust, adapt, recover and regain a level of independence for yourself.

Circle Rehabilitation – the difference is obvious

As a specialist rehabilitation centre, we can offer you support that can continue beyond the extremely limited time that most rehabilitation services in an acute setting are able to provide.

What you can expect when you get in touch with us

If you’re experiencing problems following a recent injury or operation on your back, please do get in touch with us today to see how we can help you.

Once we’ve spoken with you, your case will be reviewed by one of our specialist consultants who will be able to assess your requirements. We deal with all enquiries quickly as we know how important prompt rehabilitation is for your back, and how much of a difference it can make to the extent of your recovery.

If the severity of your back problem qualifies you for our intensive rehabilitation programme we’ll be in touch to arrange a face-to-face meeting with you. This can be done at Circle Rehabilitation if you’re close to Reading and able to travel or alternatively we can visit you at home if you’re unable to travel.

If you live such a distance away as to make an initial face-to-face visit impractical we can carry out a phone assessment instead. (It should be noted that we have people coming to us for back rehabilitation from all over the UK. You don’t have to be living in Reading to visit with us and to benefit from our exceptional and outstanding level of care and support.)

We’ll treat you as an individual, not a ‘hospital number’

Having visited with you (or talked with you on the phone), we’ll draw up a comprehensive plan for your back rehabilitation. This will be tailored specifically to you and based on your requirements and what the best possible treatment and rehabilitation therapy would be for you.

Our highly-specialised and experienced multidisciplinary team will work with you (and anyone who is helping to support you) to ensure you receive the level of help and support you need, all based on best practice and the latest research and medical knowledge in back rehabilitation.

Circle offers you full support in a comfortable, friendly and relaxed environment. When you visit with us, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the state-of-the-art facilities we offer and the luxurious environment you’ll be in. From the tasty and nutritious meals through to the spacious rooms available you’ll be well looked after from the moment you walk in the main entrance.

Evidence-based treatment for your back

All of our rehabilitation programmes are built on VAMED’s proven and evidence-based Central European model to help accelerate recovery.

This European model of rehabilitation aims to provide treatment that is both cost-effective and tailored to an individuals requirements, rather than being based on the “one-size-fits-all” approach that is sadly all too common nowadays because of pressures on healthcare resources.

Through out partnership with VAMED, we aim to alleviate the strain on acute hospitals (and the subsequent cost to the taxpayers) by providing specialised rehabilitation for serious fractures using high-tech equipment and experienced multidisciplinary teams.

This rehabilitation model shifts the role of patients and their families from passive recipients of care to active participants and can enable patients to move back to an independent life as soon as possible.

We use only the very finest rehabilitation technology and equipment, including:

  • Anti-gravity treadmill: can help to shorten recovery time, improve mobility and reduce injury
  • Biodex Balance System 3D: this helps to increase balance and agility.
  • Hi-Tech Hydro Physio: this can help relieve joint and muscle pain and increase your range of motion
  • Biodex System 4: this measures the control and strength of isolated muscle groups.
  • Shockwave Therapy: this is used to stimulate healing of muscles
  • LiteGait: this enables partial weight-bearing rehabilitation

Your personal treatment plan

At Circle Rehabilitation our team will devise an individual treatment plan for you, including up to three hours of personal therapy a day.

We offer state of the art equipment (such as that listed above), ample therapy space and care from a highly experienced team of therapists who are led by a rehabilitation consultant.

Your treatment plan is adjusted every day based on how you’re progressing. Rather than giving you the same exercises to do for weeks at a time, we measure your progress daily and will adapt the treatment plan as required.

We know that everyone is different and so we’ll make sure that your treatment plan is:

  • tailored just for you
  • based on up-to-date best practice knowledge
  • reviewed daily to ensure you’re making the progress you should be

Family members welcome!

We know that sometimes staying away from home can be unsettling for people. If you’d like a family member to stay overnight with you, you’ll be delighted to know that every one of our 15 rooms has a pull-out bed for them to use.

We find that many people really appreciate having a family member there for them in the initial stages, as an additional emotional support.

In fact we actively encourage family members to visit and be involved in your rehabilitation, as we know how much of a difference it can make.

It can help your family to find out firsthand about the exercises you’re doing (and any that you may need to continue to do), and about any lifestyle changes you may have to consider in the future depending on the severity of your back problem. It gives them an exceptionally clear and accurate understanding of exactly what your rehabilitation involves and how demanding it can be for you.

They’ll also be able to encourage you when the therapy is more demanding and be there to celebrate the “little wins” with you.

We help relieve some of the strain on the healthcare system

Since we first opened our doors at Circle Rehabilitation, we’ve developed exceptionally strong relationships with local hospitals (such as the Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital) and with a number of local and national trauma networks (such as the Wessex Trauma Network).

With our powerful combination of advanced rehabilitation technology and equipment, our knowledgeable and experienced staff and our cost-effective ability to deliver personalised, high-quality care, we find that we’re often asked to help ease the burden on overstretched healthcare resources by helping their patients with their recovery and personalised rehabilitation for their back injury/post-surgery.

Benefit from our expert multidisciplinary team

When you have your back rehabilitation with us, you’ll benefit from our team of highly-specialised and skilled physicians. They work together to ensure you’ll receive the best care, treatment and support possible.

For example, we often find that family members can benefit hugely from talking with our specialist clinical psychologist. Recovering from a serious back problem (and any subsequent treatments needed) can be challenging for everyone involved, and family members often find that being able to talk with someone about the unique pressures they’re facing is really helpful.

At Circle Rehabilitation we’re not just here for you. We’re here to support you family as well while we all work towards your back rehabilitation and getting your independence back.

Everything we do – whether with our state-of-the-art equipment and technology or through focused individual time with one of our physiotherapists – is directed to giving you back your independence as fully and as quickly as possible.

We offer both residential (inpatient) and by appointment (outpatient) care, so can help you whatever your back rehabilitation needs.

If you are struggling to regain strength, mobility or function following a recent injury or operation on your back, why not have your rehabilitation from the very best specialists, in the very finest purpose-built rehabilitation centre and with the very best possible care?
