Thanks Country Dave, I will look into this and buy my own inversion table. I tried this a couple of times at the Physio, no benefits were obvious. Maybe I need to start with a small inversion (say 45 degrees) time interval every third day, then build up each week, then determine if I have benefited. I will ask my new Physio which is more in tune to my injuries effects than the old one. My massive fall from height caused 4 "burst fractures" and hence pain ANY time I am vertical, yes sitting or worse standing. I think an inversion table is worth revisiting with my health professionals which are supportive. I thank you for your suggestion. Cheers

Sorry about the delay but I found three posts in my junk mail.
Dave I borrowed one of those inversion tables , it never worked as well as the stretching at the Chiropractor -- I also used to try and hang onto monkey bar or such and do it that way -- it did help a bit

I was always curious on an inversion table, as i feel i need to be streachted out, i looked into an inversion table and was all but ready to buy one when i was told not to, due to the large occifications on my thoracic spine,, totally deflated me i was so looking forward a nice streach, so i just put my elbows on the kitchen bench and ever so slightly bend my knees, its not much but i make sure it make no extra pain and feels good.
