Very Happy with this Teeter Table!
on September 20, 2009
My husband and I both have back problems and are overweight and in our fifties. We wanted to try inversion but wanted a sturdy, well-built table. We had also looked at and tried several tables in stores and at friends' homes. We chose Teeter because it was an established, sturdy product, and we chose this--admitedly older--model for one reason; no one complained about foot pain during inversion (in ANY of the Amazon reviews), and I had had trouble with some of the tables we tried. I am happy to report--NO FOOT PAIN! There is pressure on the arch-top, of course, and eventually it becomes uncomfortable, but it is easily relieved by going back up for a moment and then returning to the inverted position.
Also--NOTICABLE RELIEF OF BACK PAIN! After two weeks I decided to cancel my next appointment with the chiropracter--which had for several years been needed weekly just to move, but did not relieve all the pain--and after two months I have not regretted it. MUCH cheaper than chiropractic! My husband is completely pain-free; I still have some pain, but less than the chiropracter could achieve!
Two notes: I have sinus problems, and still have to invert slowly the first time down to avoid pressure and pain in my head. My husband has no trouble. Also, last week we both had colds. My husband still had no trouble, but inversion gave me a headache which lasted a couple of hours, so I did not use the table again until the sinus congestion had passed.
We are VERY happy with our inversion table! We would definately recommend this model to anyone who was interested in relieving back pain, even if they are older and overweight.
