In brief: Yes

Aerobic exercise (activities raising heart rate over 100) at least thirty minutes nonstop three or more times a week can improve spinal pain and improve overall feeling of feeling well.
It may not eliminate all pain, but physically active people generally do better than inactive persons. Find something you can do, you will do, and does not aggravate your symptoms.

In brief: Usually yes

Not everyone has to run a marathon.
Moving about, walking, stretching and having your muscles work a bit daily will assist in maintaining bone density, heart and muscle health. Make sure you do not have condition that precludes exercise and make healthy movement a part of your daily life. www.artofplasticsurgery.com

In brief: Definitely

Exercise causes the blood to move through u'r system better. This allows nutrients to be delivered and toxins to be taken out more regularly or recycled in a way.
Also causes u'r cells to use more glucose and make more proteins which raises u'r metabolism. This will allow the sugar&cholesterol that hangs out in the blood stream to be used by those cells to lower there stay in the blood vessels.

In brief: Yes! Try a pedometer
