Hi, I'm 6 weeks out of surgery for a MicroD, and I was wondering if it's a good idea or not for me to rock in a glider rocking chair? I used to rock in it all the time as I listened to music, but that was before the back pain episode and surgery. The chair isn't a typical rocking chair, in that it glides back and forth instead of actually "rocking". It's the type that has the odoman that also glides (I don't use that much). Has anyone rocked in rocking chairs or on a glider after surgery? I just want to prevent reherniation or other problems.
Yes, I did ask both my NS and the physical therapist about this. They both kind of shrugged their shoulders and said it should be okay, since you use your legs to glide. However, once I sat in the chair, I also noticed how much your butt moves and thus, isn't your lower back affected? Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
