Question Back injury and starting aikido?

Hello all,

My partner and I are looking into ways of exercising and getting healthy and both of us have always had an interest in aikido. However, my partner has a back injury for which he will need to get surgery some time in the future.

We wanted to hear from people who study aikido whether we should still look into taking aikido classes despite his back injury (considering the need to learn how to fall)? Also, are there schools of aikido which are more flexible for people with disabilities?

Thanks in advance for any help, information, or advice,

Elske
