Yes a recliner is very good for sitting in and relaxing in after having back surgery.

After back surgery you should either lay in bed or sit in a recliner in the reclined position for at least the first 2 to 3 weeks after having the back surgery done.

Also have someone drive you for at least a few weeks to allow your spine to heal and for your back to heal as well.

Avoid staying in the vehicle for more than 20 minutes at a time as well.

If you need to have physical therapy after back surgery you will usually need to do physical therapy for at least a few months for at least once or twice per week.

But it can vary from person to person as some people take a bit longer to recover after back surgery than other people.

Some people who have back surgery may not even need physical therapy either so it depends on the person.

The average cost of back surgery or spinal fusion surgery ranges from $14,000.00 to $30,000.00 and if you have insurance that will pay for the back surgery then you may only need to pay $500.00 to $2,000.00 of the cost of back surgery with insurance.

However not all back surgeries or spinal fusion surgeries are covered by health insurance if it's not deemed medically necessary.

After having spinal fusion surgery the spinal fusion when done correctly should last basically for the rest of your life.

But if you're experiencing any problems with the spinal fusion you need to see your doctor and tell them about it so no complications arise.

It can take a few months to fully recover after the spinal fusion surgery so take it easy for a few months to allow the spinal fusion to heal.

Health insurance or medical insurance will usually cover the cost of Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery if the Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery is considered medically necessary to prevent further problems.

If the back pain or spine issues are bad enough then the health insurance or other medical insurance will usually cover the cost of the surgery.

Or at least they may cover part of the cost of the Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery and you may need to pay a small portion of the cost.

However if the Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery is not medically required then health insurance or medical insurance will not cover the cost of it.

In that case you'll need to pay out of pocket the full price to have Spinal fusion surgery or back surgery.

Spinal fusion surgery can cost as much as $14,000.00 to $30,000.00 so if it's not medically needed then it would not be worth it.
