Who has one? Who uses one? Any testimonials on them?
I have a herniated disc in my lower back that's pinching my siatic nerve in my left leg. I've been in physical therapy since early April, 3 days a week. I spend 15 minutes in traction with electrical stimulation and heat on my back then 45 minutes in the gym trying to get the strength back in my left leg. I was at 25% strength in my leg at the start of therapy and now I'm at 60%.
I am still having pain in my back and shooting down my leg. I'm on 3 different medications to manage the pain and make it liveable.
I want surgery to be the last resort. I have atleast 5 more weeks of therapy and want to see it through before they cut me.
I have had several people tell me I need to try an inversion table to help decompress the pinched vertabrae. Sounds like it would be a good addition to my therapy routine.
So, does anyone have any insight on inversion tables?
