View Full Version : Pronation after surgery

10-24-2012, 06:11 PM
Hi, it is Gardenia again. Nearing the date and now I am looking for things to worry about. I recently went to my chirpractor and he adjusted a very painful shoulder I had. I knew that I will have to rely on the right hand-arm-shoulder to get up and down.

They had a new toy that measures your Pronation-Stability index...

Then, I read some blogs where patients felt that after their surgery that their pronation was not in balance, mostly when it comes to holding ones head up stratight. I will have a surgery in the lower part and that should not affect how I carry my nexk or head. Is this a correct assumption?

Thanks if you can give me your advise, experience or comments.

Try not to worry about such things. Don't buy trouble as my Mother used to say to me. You have a very skilled surgeon and I am sure he will balance your spine as he does your fusion. That is what skilled spinal surgeon's do. You will be fine. I am not exactly sure about what you mean though about pronation. Does that mean sticking your neck out? Clue me in.

I read it somewhere and it had to do with not being able to lift the head up .... it was mention that the surgery went to over balance. I apologize for asking about something that I am sure my great surgeon will have taken into consideration as he sounds very conservative as to not over-doing.

Thank you. I will stop finding problems to worry about.

Before you know it, it will be all over and you will be in recovery mode. Go out Friday or Saturday night for a nice dinner and a good movie and do your best to relax. My very best wishes go out to you for a great outcome and a smooth and uneventful recovery. Us older gals need to stick together.
Take care, Sally
