    THE TEETERS HANG-UP.COM.….. IS AWESOME. IT WILL LIMBER YOU UP AMONG OTHER THINGS. FULL INVERSION FOR 30 SECONDS WILL DO WONDERS.

    Have had ciatica on and off for over a year. Getting one of these as soon as I can afford it. Tired of the pain and not being able to work out and even walk at times.

    I have an inversion table. I twisted once while fully inverted and tweaked my back, it hurt for days. I never twist while inverted. I also don't notice any benefit when going past about 80% inversion.

    I do 2 minutes @ 60 degrees and there is a lot of stress on the top portion of your feet. I recommend 2 minutes on 5 minutes of another 2 minutes on on . Three times each time, 3 to four times a day . It will do you a lot of good. I have 4 bad disc’s all from a fall from a ladder at work. It will never be the same . This will help momentarily. The pain goes away immediately for those 2 minutes and it gets a little better over time, but I will never be the same.

    I just want to let people know that a lot of the Teeter knockoffs are just as good. And definitely a much much better value.

    I put Bob and Brad on the car speaker with bluetooth. Should have done this a long time ago.

    I have the teeter, inversion table. It's great but I NEED a spotter…I cant get back up. I even purchased the additional handles. If alone I have to wiggle my feet out of my sneakers n cuffs. Be nice if it was easier to get back up. 😬😠

    I have a teeter, and the most important thing is avoiding the headrush from the blood, you can't go full tilt upside down immediately, you gotta ease into entering and exiting the table… otherwise the headrush will last for hours

    Male, 74, lean 180, 6'2", no hypertension, no strokes, no kidney or liver or gut issues. Would one of these for me? Oh, diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis in 2018. Any great risk on inversion for me??? Thanks

    I love my inversion table! Just do it slowly and you don't even need to go right upside down.

    what about a caution to only invert on an empty stomach. I hurt for days afterward the one time I tried it.

    Doing the sit ups looks like the same movement as lifting with just your back and no legs. No good

    Would you two super cool dudes advise against inversion tabling for those with hiatal/hiatus hernia?

    Thank you. I have one and I have done the full inversion but never tried the twisting or sit-ups and I don't plan to do so anyway, I usually don't believe in doing sit-ups anyway. I bought it because I felt it's a cheaper way to fix my spine than several regular visits to chiropractic, which I believe to be a better way to go see chiropractors because of the regular treatments by you experts. it's just that With no insurance, I can't afford the many office visits I'll need for my particular situation so I've calculated it works out cheaper for me than doing nothing. . So thank you guys for recommending it with the cautions.

    My Physio that's using a traction machine on me told me these things are really bad? He suggest I buy a ski boot, drill a hole in the bottom and put a rope through it and then tie it to a bucket. From there can lay in bed, put the boot on and put bricks in the bucket and hang the bucket over the end of the bed. This then pulls and gives your back traction while the ski boot supports your leg. Obviously have someone help you do it.

    Dont know if it really works or not given the treatments I'm currently getting are at 90kls of pull I doubt I'm going to get that from a bunch of bricks.

    I have the teeter table too and it’s been great BUT had my back surgery a year ago where I had the worst sciatica pain, 2 weeks ago I started using the table again and at 80% plus for 10 min. I did the twist and pull myself up shown on this video and I have had my leg pain rerun!!! I am not sure if it table or something else so I would 100% tell people PLEASE take it easy and just use gently at less of an angle

    are horizontal back stretching tables offering the same benefits without the side effects of inversion? like this one https://m.media-amazon.com/images/S/aplus-media/vc/6dfb2bef-5952-4698-9bdb-9926d0755248.jpg

    My physical therapy practitioner doesn't use an inversion table. Their office has what I call The Rack. It gently stretches the spine.

    I have been doing all of those bad things you caution against for at least 10 years, and I just turned 81 and don' t intend to stop. Having said that, I cannot agree too strongly with Brad' s cautions except to say they are not strong enough or clear enough.

    There needs to be a definitive checklist of conditions you should not have before you get on an inversion table in the first place. Building up from, say, 2-3 minutes at 45 degrees to full inversion can't in my opinion, be done safely, especially by people over 50, in less than 3-6 months of regular sessions at least once a week.

    I do a 16-minute fully inverted routine that includes dozens of the dreaded spinal (and neck rotations), side bends, straight and oblique "crunches" or semi-situps plus some additional exercises with 15 and 20 pound dumbells. In my opinion, there is no better way to do core exercises. BUT, I evolved my routine progressively, step by step over a period of several years. A good rule of thumb is to estmate what you can do, cut it IN HALF, do it several times and see what happens. Wait until what you are doing starts feeling way too easy and becomes seriously boring before making a small incremental increase in one variable at a time.

    I know there are not that many human beings who are wired that way, but that is the way you need to go if you don't want to disrespect hanging by your heels and maybe paying a price. I have a disc that is collapsed on one side, and maxing out (for me) the inversion platform has kept me out of sciatica and meralgia paresthetica hell for 15 years.

    It isn't necessary to go beyond 60 degrees to get major benefits. At 60 degrees the downforce on the body is 87% of full inversion (less a little due to friction between body and pad). My primary motive for going full invert was to enable full freedom of movement for exercises.

    So, Bob, I think your blanket prohibitions are misguided. Caution, common sense, and the self discipline to pay careful attention to how your body feels during and after a session plus the discipline to make gradual, incremental increases in everything can allow a person to optimize use of the device.

    I'm kinda scared to use this table because of potential retina tears I heard happened to some people …but would really love too on the fence

    A friend gave me his inversion table after he had a bad experience with full inversion. I don't go lower than 45 degrees. I've used it in the past when back pain was interfering with my sleep. I'd use this for 5 min before bed and then get right into bed. No waking up with back pain during the night. Keep in mind that once you get off the table, the compressive forces start to return to the spine due to gravity. I think the reason I had good results is that I was supine afterward. Not sure if the effects would last if you remain upright.

    Question I have spondylothesis in l5 and I bought a teeter table before being diagnosed would it be ok to still use this table with that type of injury?

    It's a good thing you didn't have an aneurysm ready to blow when you inverted. No way would I ever do that!

    My wife got an inversion table from a friend, and she was doing a full inversion when the leg brace unlocked and dropped her on her head. Had to call an ambulance cause she couldn't move. It wound up fracturing her neck, and she has all kinds of spine problems now. Be very careful if you use one of these things.
