The problem with a lot of recovery programs that are available on the Internet is that you don’t know the qualifications and expertise of the person behind them.
In other words, you just don’t know who you can trust.
And doing the wrong exercises can do a lot more harm than good. You could actually make the back pain much worse – and that’s after going through painful, expensive surgery!
I’ve seen individuals end up worse off than they were before. How depressing do you think it is to undergo a procedure to feel better, only to end up worse off than before? Well, I’ll tell you – it is a tremendous gut punch that leaves many feeling depressed and distressed.
The simple problem in many cases was that they were doing the wrong exercises, which were aggravating their condition, rather than making it better.
These people lost years of pain-free movement simply because they chose to save a few bucks by using some exercises they found online, or by skipping out on the recovery program all together.
Let me stress: You just don’t know the motivation or the knowledge level of some of these so-called ‘experts’ out there. It is much better to be safe than sorry.
Often with a lot of the free exercises that are out there, key components of a recovery program are missed. Also, the order the exercises are performed can be very important. Doing them in the right order can vastly increase their effectiveness.
You also need a program that really stretches the muscles and joints. This is vital for creating good range of motion and flexibility. In addition, after surgery, scar tissue forms and soft tissue contracts. That’s why it is vitally important to stretch the area to maintain flexibility.
And one more thing – you need a program that strengthens the area where you had the surgery. This will help you increase stability and improve balance.
It just so happens that I’ve created a program that does both of these things – helping you to avoid reinjuring your back and feeling more back pain.
