What type of physical activities can I perform after ACDF surgery C6? Prior to the surgey, I ran 3-5 miles a day 5 times a week. When is it safe for me to start back running?

I would say as soon as you are up to it and start slowly...but it may be wise to ask your surgeon.
I, for one, could not walk a long distance for quite some time after I had ACDF, C-5 & C-6, because the "jarring" of walking on the sidewalk made my neck hurt. After over 2 years I still find "pulling" on my neck area if I try to walk up a fairly big hill while hiking.
Hope this helps!
