Abstract: Identifies only 4 studies of physical therapy management of patients immediately following lumbar spinal surgery.  Finds that there is very low quality evidence that pre- and post-operative exercise in addition to standard PT may reduce pain, time taken to achieve post-operative functional milestones, and post-operative time off work. Results of 1 study indicated that there is no clear benefit or harm from performing either prone or side-lying transfers.
