If you’ve recently had spinal fusion, Medical Fitness Pros specializes in working with what to do for you after your surgery. There’s a good chance you’ve likely been dealing with a lot of pain for a while, you’ve gone through physical therapy, and you really don’t want to re-injure, you don’t want to go through more pain and hurt everything.
A Medical Approach to your spinal fusion exercise program
For us, we consult with your doctor or physical therapist, and we have protocols to ensure the program we’re doing for you is safe and effective, we don’t want to hurt you. We’re going to focus on core strength and glute strength just like you did in physical therapy, but we’re also going to implement things like pushing, pulling, lifting, and carrying to ensure that you can get to a normal gym program so you can begin doing this on your own. We will focus on cardiovascular endurance as well and make you as strong as possible, so that you can keep that spine as strong and stable as possible.

So, we’re very careful with that, we’re not going to push you beyond your means, we’re going to make sure the things we’re doing for you is going to be helpful and help you achieve the results you’re after.
