what about exercises for people with back problems thereelmike — Apr 07, 2018 10:17AM PDT

Have had a S1 to L2 interbody fusion done 10 years ago and am 65. Your exercises in many cases are not good for people with back issues who have had surgeries and are older. I need suggestions for those of who want a better routine then going to a therapist. I don't have medical coverage for that thanks to Obamacare.
