Post Surgical Exercise Videos

Post Surgical Exercises

Physical activity is an essential part of your recovery plan. This part of the video series demonstrates exercises that you can do after your surgery. These exercises will be prescribed to you.

There are 2 levels of the exercise program following your surgery. The first level has exercises you should start in 2 to 3 weeks after surgery. The exercises in level 2 are slightly more advanced and you will progress to these approximately 4 to 6 weeks after your surgery.

The exercises will promote recovery and should not increase pain, however beware that some mild muscle soreness is normal after the first few sessions of any exercise.

Remember to LISTEN TO YOUR BODY; although these exercises are not strenuous STOP OR AVOID any exercise that increases pain or discomfort.

Also keep in mind that you should avoid lifting any heavy weights for at least 6-8 weeks after surgery. Contact Laser Spine Institute, Physical Therapist Consultant, about any questions or concerns you have related to the exercises in this video series.

The Laser Spine Institute Exercise Video Series, including all functional activities and post-surgical exercises, were designed specifically for Laser Spine Institute patients only. If you have not been prescribed these exercises, you should contact your physician before starting this or any exercise program. Exercise is not without its risks, and this or any other exercise program may result in injury. They include but are not limited to: risk of injury, aggravation of a pre-existing condition, or adverse effect of over-exertion such as muscle strain, abnormal blood pressure, fainting and disorders of heart beat. As with any exercise program, if at any point during your workout you begin to feel faint, dizzy, or have physical discomfort, you should stop immediately and consult your surgeon's liaison or physician.
