Low Back Surgery

General Information & Rehabilitation

The first step in your surgical recovery starts with the use of modalities to decrease pain. Strengthening will help the muscle weakness that can occur from the nerve damage of your initial spinal injury. Physical therapy will also help to strengthen the deep muscles of your trunk as well as the spine stabilizing muscles to help relieve pain and pressure. Our Lumbar Core Strengthening Program will help to improve the stability of your spine as well as help you get back to your daily activities with less pain. Postural exercises and education along with a home exercise program will help return you to your previous activity level.
