Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery

Ask your surgeon: In general terms, it is safe to work on progressive core strengthening and range of motion following spinal fusion - however, you do need to discuss the timing and progression of your rehab with your surgeon, because there are many ways to do a fusion, as well as different numbers of levels fused depending on the patient.
