In brief: Core Strengthening

Once you've had a lumbar fusion it is a good idea to get in an organized program of physical therapy to help you with core strengthening.
Once you've learned these exercises to stretch and strengthen your core you can do them on your own at home. This will help take the load off of your spine and promote recovery.
