Exercising with hydro-therapy

Started by Judy Craft on 11/18/2016 10:27am

I've starated with water therapy after having spinal infusion 11 weeks ago. My physician has me going 2 days a week which is spread so far apart in my options which I feel I'm not getting much from. Should I be going more ongoing offer to see results a least 3 days a week would seem to help better. I go on mostly Tuesday and Thursday if allgoes well

Hi, Judy Craft--We know you posted this last year, but we thought we'd chime in with a link to one of our spine surgeon-written blogs about this very topic: ( Spine Surgery Recovery - The Benefits of Hydrotherapy ).

In terms of timing, starting slow with exercise after surgery is important. Spine surgery is a big deal, and even the most gentle conditioning exercises like hydrotherapy need a slower approach. We're curious: Did hydrotherapy help you throughout your recovery? We'd love to hear how you're doing!
