I am a long time follower to this forum, but only recently joined. I had my L5-S1 microdiscectomy back in November of 2009. I am 31. I am happy to say that I am doing very well since the surgery. Life is back to normal, with one exception, I go to the gym constantly to keep myself healthy and strong. Exercise and staying active with this injury is a must in my book! If I sit around and do nothing for a couple of days, my back pain returns.
Anyway, my question is this... Does anyone use an inversion table to relieve their lower back soreness? I still get sore and a good stretch seems to cure things. At the gym I sometimes just hang from the pull up bar to "decompress" everything, and feel much better. So would hanging upside down help things even more? I would like to get some feedback before I pull the trigger on of these expensive machines.
Any info would be great and thanks in advance!
