Pertinent info: I'm a 5' 1", 150 lb. 65 year old woman with no other back/neck problems of which I'm aware.
I can't begin to tell you the pain I was in from a pinched nerve in my neck. For a week, I couldn't stand up for more than five minutes without my neck starting to burn and feel like someone was stabbing me. Bad enough that sometimes I really, really wanted to scream. I had to lie down on a small neck bolster with a heating pad on high to stop the pain, which took up to half a hour. Then I was stuck on my back until I was willing to endure the pain again. This was the seventh or eighth episode of this neck pain in the past couple of years, each episode worst than the last as to length and degree of pain. I missed seven days of work this time.
The success of the bolster/heat treatment is what led me to a self-diagnosis of a pinched nerve. You should see your doctor for diagnosis.
I first tried aTENS unit, which was a miserable failure for my particular condition. (I'm returning it to Amazon.) I ordered this inversion table and had friends assemble it for me since I absolutely couldn't do it. (Not nearly as simple as it looks like it should be.) I spent several hours up and down from bed making small adjustments to the unit until I had it right for me. (Tip, although I'm 5'1", the correct height setting for me on the boom arm turned out to be 5'7". I have the strap configured to allow the table to tilt no more than 35 to 40 degrees off the horizontal plane. This is FAR from completely inverted, which would be 90 degrees. However, when on the table, it feels like I'm close to upside-down.)
Once I had it adjusted to my satisfaction, I suspended myself for ten minutes, then waited to see how long it would take the pain to return while standing. 45 minutes! For someone who hadn't been able to eat anything in an upright position for a week, this was a miracle, and such a relief. Went back to bed for a couple of hours, then got back on the table again for 15 minutes. (I recommend sticking with a maximum of ten minutes as it states in the instructions.) I repeated this a couple of times in the next hour or so, sticking to ten minutes. Then I waited for the pain again. I went to bed for the night around three hours later with no pain. I woke up, got out of bed to see how long it would take the pain to hit again. When eight hours had passed and I was still pain free, I went ahead and used the table a couple of times during the remainder of the day as recommended in the instructions. That was yesterday and I'm still pain free and fixing to use the table for the first time today.
I plan on following the ten minutes, twice a day routine forever. I've read that inversion can reverse some of the damage gravity does to the internal organs over the years, compressing them and forcing them down out of their original positions. I'm hoping this will also help keep my heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, etc., from deteriorating.
I didn't buy this model for the heat function, but turns out it works just fine, at least on the first try. I'll probably not use it often, maybe in the winter to pamper myself sometimes. I'm pretty hot natured and additional heat isn't always comfortable for me. If the heat breaks, the table stays!
I'm impressed with the solid construction, the comfort of the ankle holders and the simplicity of the design. I would prefer more padding on the table, but that would probably interfere with the heat function. Attaching a piece of memory foam to the table somehow would probably work great if you don't care about the heat.
I must say that lifting my body forward to step down off the table is a little straining on my back, and someone with existing back issues might want someone else present to act as a "spotter " to aid in that, as well as to help with setting and releasing the ankle holders. You have to bend over at the waist to do that. To lean forward, I find it helps to bend my knees a little, which helps my hips act as a fulcrum. That makes it easier to lean forward to unlock the ankle holders and step off the table.
Please be aware that you may be slightly light headed when you return the table to it's upright position. Allow a few seconds for your head and inner ears to right themselves before you bend over to release the ankle holders. One final tip: If you have the slightest upset stomach, DON'T USE THE TABLE. Your stomach is likely to empty itself without warning - mine did. Probably best not to use the table on a full stomach, either. Gravity is a powerful force to move stomach contents the wrong direction, and the slight dizziness when returning to the upright position will exacerbate the problem.
I hope this review helps you make your purchasing decision.
However, there are more cons than pros:
First, the box was demolished upon arrival, so I can't return it.
Second, the pieces and parts are not labeled, so assembly is really time-consuming. It is do-able, but get hep from someone without back pain. Also, the make-shift tools provided are knuckle-busters, so plan to buy or borrow real tools.
Third: the board is hard as a rock. I will have to buy some additional padding because it puts so much pressure on my sacrum. For now, I'm using a pillow, but that blocks the heat.
Fourth: the ankle holders are uncomfortable. I'll buy more padding for this, too. I have to wear shoes or my feet slip, even on the tightest setting. This ankle discomfort limits the time I can spend inverted. Bummer.
Fifth: there is no angle adjustment lock/lever! The only thing that holds the angle of decline is a thin strap under the machine and some flimsy carabiners. I will be buying some mountain-climbing-rated replacements for sure! The strap being the only method for angle-control is something I cannot fix, and is a real safety concern! Moreover, for someone with a bad back, crawling under the machine to make strap adjustments is not fun.
Sixth: the heat controls are under the back-board, which makes them very hard to see without a flashlight and require more bending or crawling to operate. Again, bad backs won't like this.
Seventh: the lever to release your ankles is quite short, so you have to double-over to release your feet. Again, for those with real back pain, this hurts! I'll be buying a strap at the hardware store to try to remedy this.
Conclusion: this must have been designed by someone who has never had any real back pain! By the time one invests hundreds of dollars and several hours assembling, I'd expect better. I would return it, but it would be a huge pain to disassemble, and as I said, the box was destroyed before I opened it. So instead, I'll be buying all kinds of padding, straps, and hardware to fix as many problems as I can. Despite loving the heat, I highly recommend buying a different model that doesn't have all these design issues!!!

Despite a few glitches in the instruction manual, assembly was relatively straight-forward and it took about 30 minutes.
Go for it!
