Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Inversion table
« on: February 29, 2016, 06:44:21 PM »
does anyone use an inversion table post bilateral hip resurfacing. I had bilateral HR with Dr Su in 2009 one perfect the other, not as good but better than prior to surgery. Was interested in using inversion table to help with back issues.

I have one at home that is not a full inversion table, but something that supports you at the hips. You rest your pelvis on a pad, and then invert your upper body as the pad tilts. Your ankles are hooked back over a bar that keeps your hips flexed at about 90 degrees. I have used this off and on for a few years after my resurfacing, and it seems to be fine. The hanging tension goes the length of the spine, but does not put any hanging load on the hips.

My in laws have an inversion table. In the years before I had my hip resurfaced I had been experiencing increasing terrible back pain. It seemed logical that if you hang upside down by your feet and let the spine stretch out that it would bring relief. But, it did absolutely nothing, not even right after I got off the machine.
Then I did a little reading and came across and article somewhere (can't remember where I read this) that said the table would do nothing for relieving the pain and could result in injury. Where I go for physical therapy is also a chiropractic center too and there are no inversion machines anywhere.
