Struggling after an operation or injury to your hip?

We can help you regain your strength and mobility following hip surgery in our state-of-the-art rehabilitation centre in Birmingham

If you’ve recently had an injury or operation to your hip, we know you’ll probably feel quite anxious and concerned about regaining strength and movement in it.

You’ll want to know that you’re going to get the support you need to help your hip recover and to get back your independence as fully and quickly as possible.

Circle Rehabilitation is here to support you, whether at our centre of excellence in Birmingham or at one of more than 50 clinics across our UK network.

Our rehabilitation programmes are medically-led - your care and rehabilitation is overseen by one of our specialist rehabilitation consultants and physicians.

We're here to support you both physically and emotionally, and to help you regain your independence following an injury or operation on your hip.

We offer residential physiotherapy/rehabilitation courses, with comfortable and spacious on-site accommodation, as well as seeing outpatients for day sessions.

Our purpose-built rehabilitation centres based in Birmingham offers world-class care, state-of-the-art facilities and an expert team of dedicated healthcare professionals.

Your hip is a ‘ball and socket’ joint. The joint itself is formed where the upper part of your thigh bone (the femur) fits into the part of your pelvis that acts like a socket (this is called the acetabulum).

The structure of your hip joint gives it a good amount of mobility, but unfortunately it also means it’s susceptible to wear and tear. This can happen for several reasons (both injury and bone disease) and can cause severe pain and a lack of mobility in your hip.

Two of the most common injuries/problems we see with hips are:

  • Hip fracture: These are most common in people over 65, particularly in women suffering from osteoporosis. In younger people it often requires a traumatic injury such as a car accident to generate the force needed to cause a fracture.
  • Osteoarthritis: This is the most common type of arthritis in the hip.

Following trauma to your hip, sometimes an operation may be needed to aid healing and recovery. In other cases, a condition such as osteoarthritis may cause pain and a loss in mobility to such a degree that total hip replacement surgery is advised by a doctor.

Recovering from a hip operation – whether due to injury or another cause – can be challenging, often requiring specialised rehabilitation. That’s where Circle Rehabilitation can help.

Often, the right rehabilitation after a hip operation or injury can make a real difference to the extent of your recovery and long-term function.

Although some people will recover quickly from a hip injury or operation, some will need more intense therapy and support to help them regain their independence.

If you’ve recently had an operation or injury to your hip and are now finding yourself struggling to weight bear without problem, or finding it difficult to get your sense of balance back, effective and focused hip rehab can be a major factor in helping you to adjust, adapt, recover and regain a level of independence for yourself.

It’s time to accelerate your recovery.

Early hip rehabilitation can make all the difference

If you can begin your hip rehabilitation as soon possible after an injury or operation (once you doctor is happy that clinical stability has been achieved), it can help to lower the risk of further complications and improve the chance of restoring full function.

At Circle Rehabilitation, our two priorities with your hip rehabilitation are to:

  • Provide you with the best combination of specialised hip therapies possible to ensure you get your hip strength and mobility back quickly
  • To support you emotionally and physically through the rehabilitation process, and to encourage you to achieve the best recovery of your hip function possible

While many people who have an operation or injury to the hip 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 hip rehabilitation. This means days or weeks of debilitating hip pain and reduced mobility that could have been avoided.

Circle Rehabilitation centres in Birmingham and across our network of clinics in the UK provide world-class hip rehabilitation programmes in a purpose-designed environment, with no waiting lists.

Our rehabilitation centres were designed with just one aim in mind: to give people like you their independence back following an ankle injury or operation as quickly as possible.

We offer intense and personalised help with ankle recovery that goes far beyond what many rehabilitation centres are able to offer their patients.

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 ankle rehabilitation.

Circle Rehabilitation 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.

“After successful hip replacement surgery in June, I very quickly realised that I needed some help to get me moving properly before returning home. My requirements were (a) an intensive course of physiotherapy, (b) a comfortable private room in a respected hospital or convalescent home, (c) friendly and experienced nurses to look after me, and (d) good food.

“Someone suggested Circle Rehabilitation, and I booked myself in for a week immediately; this turned out to be one of the best health decisions I have made.

“The residential physiotherapy rehabilitation package includes pretty well everything. Accommodation, all food and hot drinks, 24-hour nursing, regular doctor visits and three hours of one-to-one physio daily.

“All the staff are very friendly and extremely competent. There is a good gymnasium and an anti-gravity machine, which helps to get the legs working properly again. After a couple of days I was able to get about with just a stick to aid me, and I took myself off on longish (10,000 steps) walks around the neighbouring housing estates.

“At the end of my week I felt confident enough to embark alone on a train journey from London to Gatwick and a flight to Inverness to join my wife and friends on the Isle of Skye. My surgeon is very pleased with my progress.

“I would highly recommend Circle Rehabilitation to anyone looking for rehabilitation after their hip replacement.”

Once we’ve spoken with you, your case will be reviewed by one of our specialist hip consultants who will be able to assess your requirements. We deal with all enquiries quickly, as we know how important your hip rehabilitation is for you.

If we think we’ll be able to help you with your ankle rehabilitation, we’ll be in touch to arrange a meeting with you. This can be done at a Circle Rehabilitation Centre if you live nearby and are able to travel, or alternatively we can visit you at home. If you live a significant distance from our centres, we can carry out our initial assessment over the phone instead.

Circle Rehabilitation looks after the recovery needs of people in Reading, Berkshire, London and the south of England, while our Birmingham centre is ideally placed in the West Midlands for people in Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Stoke, Shrewsbury, Worcester and beyond.

People travel to us from all over the UK to benefit from the amazing level of care and support we can offer. You don’t have to be living near a Circle Rehabilitation centres to benefit from our facilities, as we offer high quality on-site accommodation.

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

Having visited with you (or talked with you on the phone), we’ll draw up a comprehensive plan for your ankle 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.

We offer state of the art equipment, 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. We measure your progress daily and can 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

How long will my rehabilitation last?

We offer a variety of treatments, from sports physiotherapy to acupuncture, hydrotherapy to gait analysis.

The duration of your hip rehabilitation will depend on the nature and severity of your hip problem. We see post-operative hip patients for many different issues, from those in hip arthroscopy recovery to those healing from total hip replacement surgery.

As a very general guide, at Circle Rehabilitation we tend to have people stay with us for their hip rehab for anything between 3 nights to 14 nights, although this does vary as everyone is different.

Our rehabilitation aims to provide treatment that is both cost-effective and tailored to an individual’s 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.

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 carefully select 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

When you have your hip 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 hip injury or operation 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 hip 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.

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