A friend recently told me about inversion therapy using a special table that tilts your body on certain angles to help releive pain in the back area. Id be interested in that but do you think it may cause any problems with my knee implant? My Dr said I have stenosis and this therapy allegedly helps space and hydrate the vertabra in your back. I have not asked the Dr yet about inversion therapy. Whats you opinion on this? Thanks, Chuck

I can't see any reason it should harm your knee provided you are reasonably ambulant and getting a handle on the pain. I would make sure that the therapist starts with a small amount of inversion to see how you cope and gradually increases it from there. Most of the pressure is on your ankles rather than your knees (my nephew has had one for a couple of years) so it really shouldn't be too much of a problem. Do check with your doctor first, though.

Let me know how you get on, yes?
