When can I start driving again after ACDF?
You will not be able to start driving right after the surgery. Your body needs time to heal.
Certain movements should be avoided after you have been discharged from the hospital and you are starting your home recovery.
Sudden movements or twisting might impair the healing process and cause you discomfort or complications.
Since driving often involves these movements, it is better to avoid it during the first weeks after the intervention.
Your doctor will let you know when it’s safe to resume driving during your follow-up appointment.
