Wink Re: Treadmill..

I am glad you were able to get a treadmill. I am sure you will find in very helpful. I don't know if you live where winter is cold, but I have noticed that I was walking less when I got cold.

Good luck,

Lorie

Re: Treadmill..

When you're able to be steady on your feet, strong enough to be up for extended periods of time and feel up to it.. walk on the treadmill. (Probably after the first couple weeks at least). Make sure you use the safety gage, take it very slow in the beginning and don't stay on for very long. As the days go on, you will be able to increase your distance.

Re: Treadmill..

Did you get this ok'd from doctor? I have had two fusions two different docs and they said no way for a treadmill due to the jarring.
Not good for the back at all

Re: Treadmill..

I've been on a treadmill since about week 8, with the doctor's ok. Again, you don't want to put it at any great speeds or go for distance in the beginning.

Walking is one of the best things anyone can do! It has speeded my recovery, for sure.
