Abstract

The aim of this study was to elucidate the consequences of leisure time physical activities on the one-year results of surgery of lumbar intervertebral disc herniation. Pre- and postoperative leisure time physical activities and severity of occupation handicap were analyzed from 212 patients. Only to a certain degree the findings support the claim that a high preoperative level of physical activities during leisure time is linked with good postoperative results.
