Exercises after back surgery 1

By: ExorLive Content Publisher

These exercises are an example of exercises that can be performed after back surgery. Consult with your
physiotherapist or doctor to make sure you comply with your restrictions during training. The exercises should be
performed daily, preferably up to 2-3 times. Some pain can be expected during and up to 30 minutes after exercise.
When pain persists longer than 30 minutes it is recommended to execute with lower intensity the next time.

Lie on your back with your knees bent. Contract your
buttocks and raise your pelvis and lower back off the
mat. Hold for 3-5 sec., then rest for 3-5 sec.

2. Lying knee lift
Lie on your back with straight legs and arms by your
