Does anyone have a WII Fit routine they use and would like to share? For instance do you have a list of core, yoga, strength, etc. exercizes that I could copy that are good for my back? I have a lumbar fusion about a year ago (L5/S1). I need a good routine!

thanks ya'll!


  • i had the same op march 1st this year.. i was wondering if there would be good exercises on it i have Wii sports and resorts also Wii fit there are some good ones on there yoga and pilates etc

    how are you doing after this op im in alot of pain today :-(

  • You are just a shy of 2 months out. It's a tough road I think. My spondy was so bad that during the early weeks of my healing, the nerves that had been compressed were "waking up" and healing. They weren't too happy at all. As far as the surgical site, it was sore as expected. My doc said it would feel like some one had wacked me in the back w/ a 2x4. I was in a rigid brace for 3 months which kept me from moving wrong. I rested a lot; at least 2 naps a day. Your body must have good rest to heal. I had more pain and discomfort from the nerves healing and the bone graft site than the actual fusion site. It's a big roller coaster and you will get through it. Dont get discouraged because you have a few days of feeling great and then a day that really bites. It's just the way this goes. Just remember to look at the grand scale...eventually you will have more good days than bad. I just can't stress enough to rest. Lay there and let that bone grow. My surgery was june 30 of last year and i can happily say that my sciatica is gone. I'm having a bit of trouble w/ the graft site still but it's definitely manageable. Hang in there.
