Recovering From Back Pain Surgery

Dr. Theresa Pazionis, Orthopedic and Spine Surgeon at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains the recovery after a back pain surgery will focus on a core strengthening in a way that you are not bending, lifting and twisting your back. She recommends avoiding crunches or sit-ups, but doing planks. "Planks are fantastic as sort of a light Pilates and low impact activities," she highlights.
