Absolutely can BUT--


Though you are young for this sort of problem the answer is still true no matter your age...exercises abound for people with your types of arthritic problems and you should do them with gusto and not avoid them. But it may be advisable to work with someone who's experienced such as a therapist or trainer to be sure you are doing things the right way. Try AQUATIC THERAPY as well. Talk to your doc

McKenzie Exercises


PT for back and neck conditions involve stretching, strengthening, and SOME range of motion. These exercises start VERY gently, and then are progressed by a certified PT based upon patient response. All patients are different, so the exact exercises differ as does the progress. Pilates is also excellent for the core (yoga and PiYo other options) if you want non-medical option.

Core strength


I am a big proponent of core strengthening exercises with roots in Pilates. Most back and neck issues are non surgical and can be managed with weight control, healthy eating and living, and cardio and core exercises. Many physical therapists teach basic Pilates moves.

Mindful Yoga?


I don't know the specific back problem you have, or what type of back exercises you're considering. The vipassana retreat I just attended included some gentle, mindful yoga -- and people were of course free to amend postures according to any physical limitations they had (like back pain, etc). Please ask your doctor about any specific limitations s/he feels you need to observe with exercise.

Activity after fused


Given that rods were removed, I must assume that the fusion is solid. Therefore, there are really no restrictions for you in a solidly fused lumbar spine. Core exercises like Pilates/PiYo/Yoga are great (your flexibility will be limited, obviously). Aerobic exercises as tolerated and continue to progress as tolerated.

Hand grip may be fatiguing if weight too heavy, also I use weight lifting gloves to improve grip and absorb sweat. Also they protect hands. Good luck.

Slight disc bulge at L4/L5. Treatment needed? Will traction make disc go back in? Or just back exercises will do?

Based on symptoms.


Slight disc bulge is probably present in most every 53 y/o spine. A very non specific finding. Treatment would be based on symptoms. If there are no symptoms directly referrable to your L4/5 issue then simple exercise / perhaps PT and some NSAID / tylenol / mechanical precautions is all you need.
