Better But With Side Effects

For 6 weeks, I have been using an inversion board twice a day for about 5 minutes each time. I do not go into 180 degree position, but I am closer to 135 degrees. I have found this greatly reduces back pain and I have more flexibility. Recently, I was told I should not use this therapy if I have glaucoma. I don't have glaucoma but I did have a detached retina that has been repaired. There is no doubt that when hanging I feel increased eye pressure. As I have had my retina detached about 9 months ago, is there any contraindication for usage of inversion therapy.
