A lower back condition can lead to spinal fusion surgery in many situations. It is assessed that 126,000 surgeries occur annually in the USA, and since 1996 the number of surgeries has risen by 116%. The group with the most significant increase in it is adults over 60.
Lumbar compression fractures, spinal deformities, spondylolisthesis, lumbar instability, disc herniation, and degenerative disc disease are common conditions that can lead to lower back and spinal fusion. Exercise is a critical element in the recovery from the lower back spinal fusion surgery.
The role of exercise after spinal fusion is vital in speeding up recovery, strengthening the muscles supporting the lower back, and improving the endurance of core stability muscles. This webinar will focus on the exercise program design and exercises for a lower back, spinal fusion client.
What you Will Learn in this Lower Back Spinal Fusion and Exercise (Webinar):
- The exercises to DO and NOT do when training a client recovering from the lower back, or spinal fusion
- Essential components of an exercise rehabilitation program when training a client recovering from the lower back, spinal fusion
- Recommended and research-backed exercises when training a client recovering from it.
