People who have had lumbar fusion surgery are understandably concerned about making sure the fusion heals as intended. For this reason, many are afraid to be active and some do not want to move at all, fearing that they will risk having the fusion not set up properly. However, movement is essential to promote healing. There are precautions to keep in mind. Bending, lifting, and twisting must be avoided. However, a short, frequent, gentle exercise is strongly recommended and delivers many benefits. If you have access to a pool that is great and you can try swimming laps or aquasize. You can do some gentle stretching of the core back and abdominal muscles as well hip flexors like the psoas.
