What are people's experience with Inversion tables?

I was reading here somewhat about inversion therapy, and see that it may not be good for people with high blood pressure. My pressure is extremely high. Well anyway, I have a bad hip which gives me a lot of pain. So I was wondering if anyone here has tried inversion therapy for hip pain. (Anyway.) After I read about an inversion table in a brochure my husband gets, I decided I'd try to stretch my leg. So last night I "stretched" my body using the headboard, and keeping my leg in the same position while lying down. I think (not sure yet) it helped. But now I'm wondering if anyone has tried stretching their legs for hip pain, and how.

Hi @cindiwass, if your blood pressure is super high, I would definitely consult your physician before following through with full inversion. I would read above to see the side effects that some members experienced.

You will see that I have moved your comment to a discussion about inversion tables so that you can connect with people who have tried it like @bill54321, @jeffkboyce, and @johnbishop.

Can you explain how you modified it by using your bed's headboard, I am not sure I can envision what you did?

@cindiwass I used to have an inversion table until I had cervical spine surgery that included a fusion. If I recall correctly, the paper work that came with it noted not to use it with high blood pressure and to consult a physician.
