Exercise, stretching: Regular stretching, aerobic exercise, yoga or pilates. If you have a segmental section which is immobile for some reason, a good chiropracter, doctor of osteopathy can help mobilize this segment.

You have a complex: case and need to be under medical management during your weight loss to document your symptoms as you lose weight since you've had significant trauma to your spine, and possibly be in pain. Usually it's safer to lose 5 pounds/month up to 10 pounds, but 4 pounds a week may be difficult as your overexercising could put strain on your body.So discuss this with your doctor first to see the safest way.
