HI Kim

It's anyone's guess - no one has ever looked at the safety of the Power Plate or even the risks of using it. It's under-researched, and so there's no "KNOWN" guideline as to when exercise on it becomes safe again. I'd say that you need to wait at least long enough that you're ready to jog before you consider the Powerplate. If you can jog, then the Powerplate should be fine.

Good luck
