So I had a ACDF at C4, C5, and C6, I am 8 days post op and feel good. How far should I walk in a day? Just did a mile with no problems? 2, 3, 4 ?

Anyone also where the miami J collar? I am wearing it 24/7 right now. When you wore it, did you find you could still move your neck albeit a little?


  • Hi,

    Walking is great. In my opinion, it is the single most important part of the long term recovery process.

    I am walking 2 miles a day now (nearly 3 months post op), but I have increased to this amount gradually. I would find that if I overdid it, I would pay for it.

    So just listen to your body, but keep walking.
