Yes : Studies show certain cardiac arrhythmias occur more frequently in those with MVP and it is extremely common. Nobody can give you a definite answer but looks like you have back issues so strive to find a middle ground and meet your health goals without over stressing your heart. Try cycling too. Speak with a cardiology for expert consult. Good luck. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/7105369/

YES: Conditioning is the best way to assure your mild abnormalities (which are BTW VERY COMMON and in most people asymptomatic) do NOT affect your like in any way! Hope this helps! DR Z BTW I would discuss the use of PROPHYLACTIC antibiotics with Dental visits!
