Had a total hip replacement one year ago Want

Patient: Had a total hip replacement one year ago. Want to know if I can do a full 180 inversion. I can see the 60% angle shouldn’t be a problem but was wondering if the full inversion will cause any issues?

Patient: I stated the degrees wrong. Laying flat on the inversion table (like you are laying on your bed) that would be at zero degrees. So to hang at 90 degrees would be with my feet straight up in the air and my head hanging down. So wth a total hip replacement am I am to hang upside down fully in a 90 degree angle with all my weight being suspended from my feet?
