Most of us are very cautious when we exercise or do strenuous activities such as running or heavy lifting. But we really don’t think about the daily activities that we perform and the impact they can have on our spine health.
This part of the video series demonstrates general guidelines and effective body mechanics you should incorporate into daily activities. These videos should be used as a guide to better perform daily activities without injury or strain.
Remember to listen to your body and avoid any activity that increases pain or discomfort.
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.
