Kevin Hart's Back Surgery and Recovery

Want to be inspired? Even a celebrity like Kevin Hart is dealing with back pain and injury, like so many of you. He recently opened up about his recovery journey:

“I’m not trying to get back to where I was…I’m trying to reach new levels of greatness…I want to inspire & motivate people to challenge themselves to be great. We all have greatness within…it’s up to us to tap into it."

-- Actor Kevin Hart on recovering from a scary car accident and back injury that resulted from it.

“No matter how much you think you’re in control, you’re not in control,” said actor Kevin Hart, months after a September car crash that left him with a severe injury. Hart fractured his spine in three places and has been doing intense physical therapy to rehab from the injury. He may be a ce...

Patience is the Key to Injury Recovery

"Patience...is probably the most important thing. At the time of my accident, when I had surgery -- I had a 2 level spinal fusion, L4-S1 -- I was a PGA golf professional, an avid triathlete, marathon runner...so the idea of not doing anything was a little alarming. I took the approach...to set small goals."

-- Sheldon Buytenhuys, Spinal Champion®

What Doctors Wish Their Patients Knew About Spinal Fusions
