Summary of Literature Review: Exercise therapy after lumbar disc herniation surgery is effective; however, patient training is neededto ensure compliance. Materials and Methods: After searching on five different portals using the term ‘spine surgery,’ 230 websites were retrieved. Theperformance of lumbar disc herniation surgery and presentation of postoperative exercise therapy was discovered and the presentation ofexercise therapy for surgery type and departments difference were investigated. Exercise therapy were classified according to purposesand method for reference and the number of each exercise therapy was investigated. Exercises which were divided by postoperativeperiod were also investigated. Results: In 230 websites were retrieved; there were a total of 103 hospitals performing lumbar disc herniation surgery: 23 websites (22%)proposed exercise therapy after surgery is 23(22%), and 2(9%) of websites proposed exercise therapy for the type of surgery. The numberof exercise therapy proposed by the website was 15; of the exercises mentioned, deep abdominal muscle contractions was the mostcommonly mentioned, using the treadmill was least. There were 5 websites that proposed exercise therapy divided by postoperativeperiod.
