Walking After Back Surgery
My doctor told me to walk after surgery. I started one week post op and my goal is to walk every day. Sometimes it is around the neighborhood but I try to use the treadmill at the Gym so that I can monitor how much walking I do.
Day 1 (1 week post op) - Monday - .25 mile
Day 2 - .5 miles + .25 miles in evening
Day 3 - .5 miles
I was wondering what schedule others are on? How often do you walk? How soon after surgery did you start? How soon were you able to increase the amounts? Has it helped with any weight loss (which would be a nice side benefit to my self-imposed PT walking program).
