I was brought to this page in bing search of inversion tables and clicked on one labeled--'Do inversion tables work'......and the post I was reading on says it is from 4 years ago! I would like to know of any new folks that have used inversion tables, whether before or after back surgery, or no back surgery and how they helped them, or didn't in the long run. I am personally going to be having a very major back surgery in the near future, while I await my disability, as required by my surgeon, as it will be quite financially expensive, requiring help, besides my having daily pain with my disc degenerative disease, along with now severe scoliosis....basically my bottom 5 disc are gone in my spine. Please advise if you have used an inversion table, which ones, as I do have trouble even to lie on my back, so looking for ones with cushion or ones that maybe I can lie on with my actual spine not being forced to lie on hard surface. Thanks to ANYone or everyone that can reply to me and possibly giving me some insight about inversion tables. In some of my readings, some say not advisable to use after surgery, so don't want to invest in a really nice/expensive one, if I cannot use it after I have this massive surgery that is due in my future. Thanks!!!View Thread
Thanks, yes my Dr said it would be fine to use now, and I'd already read and heard of not being able to use after I have many fusions and other things in my surgery......glad to hear your friend, also with scoliosis, says it has helped with their pain. That is all I need now is the ease in some of the pain hopefully and any other benefit it may give me at this time. I actually did find a top of line used one today and just got it home. Anxious to try first time tomorrow. Thanks Diane!!View Thread
Thanks BJ! This is part of what I'm wondering, as I know I will be having multiple fusions done with my back surgery, and although I'm not sure when this will take place...., after disability kicks in, I quite smoking, financies are arranged etc. But in hearing so many talk of the pain relief the table does give, I fell I should purchase a low end/price one as I may not be able to use after my surgery. I hope also, that more members come thru with their personal experiences on them on here.
Hi kenny63....could you explain to me please, what this SCS implant actually is, involves what, and any other info on it? As I am currently waiting on disability to be more financially secure, as my surgeon wishes, before I have a very major back surgery. It will involve fusions and a lot due to my severe disc degenerative disease, resulting in severe scoliosis and my bottom 5 discs are basically gone as he showed me in my ex-rays and mri's. Is this something can or is, done to help ones after a back surgery, as I know one lady that has some sort of an implant, for releasing pain meds to her spine, but was told it was an implant folks only get after back surgery. Any info you have would be quite helpful. I am new here, and just posted also, a long post in questions of info on inversion tables too. Thanks so much Kenny!!!View Thread
