This item looked interesting so I thought I'd give it a try. It arrived in just a few days, and I pulled it out of the box along with the one-page instruction sheet. The instructions aren't too extensive, but give you a general idea of what to do. In a nutshell, you lay on it. :)

So I put it on the floor and laid on it like in the picture. It really didn't look like it would do much, I guess because the arch didn't seem that high- but boy was I wrong- this thing really stretches your back! In fact its downright deceiving how much of a stretch one actually gets.

But that's not the end of the story. I, like others, found several things out right away. First, you'll need a pillow to support your head. I don't know how the lady in the picture is able to tolerate that position- maybe its one of those CPR dolls you practice on? Without a pillow, your head tilts back and can make you a little dizzy. A therapist told me that this is because your vertebral arteries (which help get blood to your head) "thread" through your neck vertebrae, and in some people, when you tilt your head back too much/too long, they can get pinched somewhat which can decrease the flow of blood to your head and make you a little dizzy- so just be careful and grab a pillow before you lay down.

The other thing I found out is that you have to "play around" with the positioning. For some people who are really tight, they'll just lay down and hit it right the first time- but this won't be everybody. Expect to spend a few minutes tinkering around with it (by sliding it up and down which is easy to do) to find your sweet spot- that being where its most comfortable/where you feel the best stretch.

Bought this product a few days ago from this company through Amazon. Delivery was quick, and price is great. There are a couple others I saw on Amazon that look similar, but appear to be constructed of bare metal, and are over three times the price of this one. This one's shape is similar, and it is padded and professionally upholstered. For 20 bucks, I figured I'd try it. The instructions are a little vague, you're supposed to lay on your back, with this device under your back, and stretch out with your hands over your head, yet it does not say what to do with your legs. (There is a picture that shows a woman with her legs outstretched as well) however, I found it fairly uncomfortable to have legs outstretched, almost seemed that legs should be bent at the knees slightly. Just lying and stretching out didn't seem to help me at all and at first, I was disappointed. (I had a dull pain on the lower right side of my back, which I often get, and after this first use, found no change in my back. This was early morning. An hour or so later, I decided to try it again. This time, I laid with the arch under my back and positioned the arch so that the pain in my back was in contact with where I felt the most comfortable pressure from the device. (You simply slide the device forward or backward to achieve this). Then, with a pillow positioned under my head, I stretched out like before (hands over head, but this time, after stretching out, I bent my knees, brought them up together towards my chest(like in a sitting position, except I was laying on my back on the floor), and then slowly lowered my legs and extended them out, and CRACK! CRACK! CRACK! CRACK!, I could just feel the pops and cracks going down my spine. Repeated this a couple times, and then I got up.Read more ›

10/02/2013 Update: To my shock, my new primary care physician (who began as an Osteopath) met with me to day and spent 55 minutes with me....I STILL think I must have been in some kind of time shift since at my age i never saw ANY doctor spend that kind of time with me. Not even the ones who made a couple HUNDRED thousand bucks off of me...To my utter astonishment, he says an inversion table will be fine for me, even after my prior 2 spinal fusions. More funny (to me) was his admission that he has had one for over 20 years and would never live WITHOUT one. His only criteria for me was to keep it simple, 20-40 degrees and just don't get stupid. I mentioned to him that I had bought the device reviewed here. He told me he was aware of it and it was PERFECT for me and it will give me probably 50-75% of the benefit of inversion with NONE of the risk or cost.So I will probably order my inversion table but I have to tell you, this has made me feel so good i AM going to hold off just a bit to see if I really even want the hassle and expense of a big old rack in the house...

Original Review below:

Thanks to War, old age (about to turn 65), a good & fun hard life of big wave surfing, motorcycle riding, racing in dirt and on track, PLUS drag racing....I have crashed and burned so many times, in so many ways I found myself nearly a quadriplegic 6 years ago. Scripps had to actually call in and hired a brilliant neurosurgeon to save me from that fate. I couldn't even raise either arm, was not able to walk but sort of shuffle with a walker. I was in pain I cannot even begin to describe. Sold my kayaks, surfboards, motorcycles etc, I was DONE....
