Maintaining Your Back for Your Lifetime
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle reduces stress and tension that can lead to back pain or disability. Control your weight, eat well-balanced meals, get enough calcium and do not smoke.
In addition to specific low back strengthening exercises, try to add overall conditioning activities. We recommend walking, swimming or biking to maintain a healthy back.
Practice Good Body Mechanics
Using good posture and body mechanics protects your back when you are sitting, standing and lifting.
Schedule Periodic Office Visits
Patients who undergo lumbar spine fusion surgery should see their surgeon periodically after surgery. This varies depending on the individual. This follow-up helps diagnose any potential complications that may arise and allows us to monitor the progress of all lumbar fusion patients.
