      Angie as I am not a doctor I cannot advise you. I would ask your doctor when it is safe to begin low impact cardio exercise. :) Thank you for writing!

    This is so comforting to read, I’m 9 weeks post op from a L4/L5 Microdiscectomy and while I know that I’m still a while off hooping again, I’m really looking forward to getting back into it.

    My surgical physiotherapist suggested belly dancing for me and I asked about hooping, and she said it would be “too fast” but I’m not really sure what the difference between belly dancing and hooping would be for my back….?! I’m not sure they understand how soothing hoop dance is, and that’s it’s not frantic and fast!!

    I miss the core strength I had before all of these back injuries and problems! Thank for you for an uplifting article!
