Used Teeter inversion table. Headache, bruise in spine. Have herniated disc

I was trying to use the Teeter Inversion table on Friday (3 days ago). I didn t have my feet locked in and when I tilted back, I went straight onto my head. I don t remember hitting my head, but my mom and daughter said I did. Since then, I have had a headache all over my head, I have a bruise right in the middle of my spine (thoracic area) and I don t feel right. I m supposed to see pain management today for a herniated L5 disc.

Thank you for posting your query.
Based on your symptoms, you seem to have suffered from mild head injury with concussion.
You should get better soon. However, if headache persists, or if you have vomiting or blurred vision, you should get a CT scan of the head done.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
