How to use the Laser Spine Institute video series
This video series was created with the purpose of helping you regain the quality of life that you deserve. We understand that all procedures are accompanied by a recovery time, which is why we have formulated these videos to assist you in getting back to the activities and people you love.
Through these videos, we will cover activities that you perform on a daily basis to ensure you are performing these activities with spine safety in mind. We will show you how to use effective body mechanics with these daily activities.
These videos will also assist you in strengthening your spine postoperatively, but the most important thing to keep in mind while doing any activity or exercise is to listen to your body. If an activity or exercise causes pain or discomfort, stop and check that you are doing the movement properly. If you are still unable to perform that movement or activity without pain, stop the exercise and contact your liaison or primary care physician for additional direction.
If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please call us. You can reach our Physical Therapist Consultant at 1-866-362-7574, ext. 253.
Now, let’s get started on your healthy recovery plan!
The Laser Spine Institute Exercise Video Series, including all functional activities, post-surgical exercises and descriptions were designed specifically for Laser Spine Institute patients only. If you have not been prescribed these exercises, you should contact your physician before starting this or any exercise program. Exercise is not without its risks, and this or any other exercise program may result in injury. Risks include, but are not limited to: risk of injury, aggravation of a pre-existing condition, or adverse effect of over-exertion such as muscle strain, abnormal blood pressure, fainting and disorders of heart beat. As with any exercise program, if at any point during your workout you begin to feel faint, dizzy, or have physical discomfort, you should stop immediately and consult your surgeon's liaison or physician.
