Purpose:

After recuperating from low back surgery patients often perpetuate a sedentary lifestyle because they are concerned about injury and recurrent pain. The objective of this study is to test the feasibility of a program to increase lifestyle walking starting several months after low back surgery.


Study summary:

The primary objective of this RCT is to compare energy expenditure from walking between an experimental group that receives a multi-component intervention based on the Health Belief Model of Behavior Change versus a control group. Patients who had surgery for a degenerative condition will be randomized postop when their surgeons deem them orthopedically stable to increase walking (at about 3 months).


Criteria:

- Inclusion Criteria: Patients will be eligible if they had lumbar surgery for a degenerative condition and their surgeon deems it safe for them to walk more. - Exclusion Criteria: Patients will be excluded if they had any new cardiopulmonary symptoms since surgery.
