Spending a short time ahead of your surgery in preparation can help to reduce your risk of complications and at the same time, help you to recover in the days immediately after your operation. Whether you have 2 weeks or 10 weeks before your surgery, taking this plan can really help. Our Plan focuses on Breathing Exercises, Circulatory Exercises, and SImple Strengthening Exercises.

*This exercise plan is strongly recommended by your spinal surgical team*

In addition, there are some really simple things that you can do that will make a big difference.
