Sleeping after spine surgery

After spine surgery, a patient needs to follow certain principles as recommended by the surgeon. Sleeping on a mattress that is firm and also supports one’s spinal alignment is a good idea. A thin pillow is useful to use after cervical spine surgery.

Avoid sleeping on the floor for say about 4-6 weeks, particularly in case of fusion surgery. The movement stresses the spine.

Household activities

Yet, continuous sitting is not good. Certain activities such as bending, twisting the body, sitting on a plain floor, and lifting heavy objects are restricted for a long time. 

Return to regular work

Patients carrying out sitting jobs can return to work once they are comfortable after seeking proper advice from the surgeon. People who need to travel long distances, involved in mild laborious activities need to wait for 1 or 2 months depending upon the surgical procedure. Heavy weight lifting is to be avoided for 3-6 months.

Using of brace

The use of a cervical or lumbar belt is suggested in a few cases after surgery to provide stability to the spine. These provide support and limit weird movements and provide comfort to the patient.
