Inversion Boots can damage knee cartilage

Re: Inversion Boots can damage knee cartilage
sounds like you had a bad knee to start with....and you should have bought a inversion table, then you could have "worked up too it"

i bought an inversion table to alleviate some back pain after fusion surgery.

not long after using it, i started having pain in my patella tendon in my knee.

Re: Inversion Boots can damage knee cartilage
the best thing i've found for aligning my back was crutches -- i go limp and allow my vertibre to snap back into place -- crutches are cheap at Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, or Goodwill resale stores - got a pair for $3.00

Re: Inversion Boots can damage knee cartilage
Inversion boots are dangerous for that reason... inversion tables are better since you can increase the angle slowly over time.

perhaps -- but once you have the full weight of your body applied to the knees, damage will happen, especially if one of your legs is longer than the other, which may happen when the back is out of alignment.

the knee is not designed to have reverse gravity applied to it -- it will separate - as will the ankle

Re: Inversion Boots can damage knee cartilage
i have a table at home and use the gravity boots at my gym almost daily and my back feels best it ever has, no offense but u pry are out of shape and thats why it caused a issue. the only risks of hangingupside down is pressure on optical nerves acording to my chiropractor

Re: Inversion Boots can damage knee cartilage
Inversion tables are dangerous for another reason, too.

Our veins have little "gates" in them. When your heart beats, the blood in the leg veins advances toward the heart (returning from the legs_. When the heart rests between beats, the gates keep the blood from flowing back toward your feet because of gravity. Then when the heart beats the next time, the blood advances even further toward your heart.

The little gates only work in one direction, ie when your are right side up, legs toward gravity. When you are hanging upside down, nothing is keeping all the blood in your legs from rushing toward the lowest point, ie your brain. If someone has a weak spot in an artery or vein in the head, they are at a much heightened risk for a stroke because of this pressure.

Be informed.

Spoken from a physical therapist....

"Spoken from a physical therapist"...vested interest I see

if folks get relief from back pain on a inversion table then they would not be visiting you much huh....

Re: Inversion Boots can damage knee cartilage
i bought an inversion table to alleviate some back pain after fusion surgery.

not long after using it, i started having pain in my patella tendon in my knee.

so you may be on to something.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32397903



It says plain as day right in the instructions DO NOT EVER GO UPSIDE DOWN. It's extremely simple. The tables are designed to slowly add traction to the lower back by SLOWLY and incrementally increasing the angle without ever going upside down.

For lower back pain there is nothing as effective or cheap in the long run. A week ago I woke up with extreme lower back pain, I guess I slept wrong or something. Throughout the day I did 5 sessions on the inversion table for about 10 minutes each time. The next morning I woke up feeling 100%. Previously I would have went to a chiropractor for 50$ a visit and the pain would not have been gone in 24 hours, it usually takes a couple days for the pain to really subside after using a chiropractor.


Inversion tables work, and they're safe as long as you follow the instructions.
