I, too, was unable to exercise before the surgery. One reason was most exercises aggravated the back. A second reason was my own fear that I would make it worse to the point where I would no longer be a candidate for the Axialif.

My exercising now focuses on my core and legs. Besides walking and stretching, I use equipment at the fitness center. I use the elliptical machine the most, the exercise bike, leg presses, hamstring curls, some upper body weights, and whatever moves me. I also focus on balance exercises. I stay away, at least for now, from any machines that focus directly on the back. I expect I may get to them in the future. Everything I do is pain free. And, other than fatigue, I have no discomfort after the exercising. I was advised to ease into, which I did with a PT person to oversee what I did. Now, I do it on my own.

All the best.
