Inversion Table for upper and mid back pain

Hello Folks,

I have upper and mid back pain which I have had for over a year and a half. Has anyone here tried an inversion table for upper or mid back pain? If so, did it work? How long before you noticed results? Thanks for any advice.

Re: Inversion Table for upper and mid back pain

I have most mid back pain, a little upper and have had surgery for lower back pain. My PT had an inversion table that I would end my exercise routine with. It did help some and I bought my own, but then relapsed and I can't use it any more. It just aggravates things.

When I could use it, it would stretch some things normal stretches couldn't. I would feel more movement in my joints, a bit like a mild chiropractic treatment or manipulation.

I felt the benefit straight away, but it didn't long term change anything, it was only a temporary relief, and certainly secondary to the exercises.

Re: Inversion Table for upper and mid back pain

My husband has mid back pain and he loves his inversion table. We got one pretty cheap at a chip and dent sale after he tried a friend of ours who has one, but I don't think they are all that expensive anymore anyway. He says it really helps him. All it does is make me scream, but my back issues are not his. He just gets horrible upper back tension and has some lower DDD. I can actually see him feel better after two or three days of being inverted every night. Hope that helps.
