I was just wondering if this is normal, or if other people experience it? I had a three level fusion (plif, L-3,4,5) last February. I have quit going to PT and do all my excersises on my own everyday. (So I can't ask my physical therapist)
While I lay on the floor doing my core excersises, or standing doing leg excersises, riding my stationary bike, (actually any of my excersises) I hear this popping noise in my vertebrea right above my fusion area. You know how it sounds when a bone slightly pops out of position momentairly? It doesn't hurt when it pops, I just hear it with each movement I make, but only when excersising. Wondering if with the continuous motion (with excersise) will it cause damage in time? Is it the vertebrea right above my rods? That's where it sound like it coming from.
Does anybody else experience this, and is it ok? Like I said, it doesn't hurt, I'm just concerned that I may be damaging a vertebrea with repetitive motion?
