The Spine Rehabilitation Concept offers an intensive spine rehabilitation programme with the additional option of combining this with surgery, but only if neccesary. Our Spine plan is designed to allow people to get rid of their Painful Back or (unstable) Neck as soon as possible while avoiding spinal surgery.  Get a strong, healthy spine in an environment that encourages health and fitness under professional supervision. We combine sessions of individual therapies such as Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Orthopaedic Manual therapy, Relaxation therapy, Acupuncture, Podiatry and Psycho therapy with the well-known DBC Back Rehabilitation Programme (computer monitored measuring system for training the core muscles of the back and neck). We are an international, multi-disciplinary team of medical specialists and therapists  all with the same goal of improving your quality of life as soon as possible.   

If you need medical intervention like spinal surgery, this will be done at the International Hospital Clinica Benidorm. Medical aftercare and rehabilitation takes place at the Medifit Reha International Spine Rehabilitation Centre. The Spine Rehabilitation Concept is a unique partnership between Hospital Clinica Benidorm and the Medifit Reha Spine Rehabilitation Clinic situated on the Costa Blanca. Our Spine Concept is accepted by many insurance companies. This means that the combination of the entire intensive spine rehabilitation programme procedure and possible surgery (only if neccesary) is reimbursed by medical funds. The latest surgical methods and intensive “in-patient” spine rehabilitation programme that we use ensure that our patients are able to revert to their normal daily activities as soon as possible.

  • Is surgery for neck or back pain necessary? The answer is sometimes. If the pain does not respond to medication, if it has not diminished after several months of non-surgical treatment as rehabilitation or if you are unable to complete basic daily activities, it is reasonable to consider spine surgery. But fear not, there's a wide array of surgery options. Some types of surgery (e.g. a posterolateral fusion for degenerative disk disease) are more extensive and have a much longer recovery time, while other procedures are minimally invasive (e.g. microdiscectomy for a slipped disc) and allow for a quick recovery. Understanding your surgery options will help you better decide on a course of action.
