This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: The primary objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of orthosis following lumbar spinal surgery for people with degenerative disease on pain reduction and improvement of functional status. Secondary objectives are to examine the effect of the intervention on overall health or health-related quality of life and treatment success (from the patient's perspective). We will compare the effect of the intervention to no immobilization.
