Inversion Table

Should I use a Inversion table?
I currently have a L5 herniation causing pain in my left legs.
I cannot walk or sit with any comfort. I've been laying down and icing my back for about 7 days. I received a Epidural shot on Monday and go for my second in 3 days. Need to be able to get back to my job. I basically edit videos for about 8-9hrs a day.

Will the table hurt or help?


  • No one here can tell you for sure whether using an inversion table could harm you. My best guess is that it would not hurt you. I asked my surgeon about using one after my fusion and he said it would be fine...but of course, I was stablized then.

    Unfortunately, I doubt using one will make enough difference in your situation that your pain level will be diminished.
  • Salty, I would ask my doctor. I am 4 weeks out from microdiscectomy and still having pain. I asked my neurosurgeon if I could return to using my inversion table and he said yes. I would not use it until a doctor said it was ok to do it. You can't be too careful.
