Fantastic design and back surgery life saver
on March 20, 2012
This inversion table is perfect for what it was designed and that is performing inversion with flexibility, stability and precision. My father is 82 and on a trip last August to OC Maryland my father's back was so bad his face was distended in pain and he could barely walk. He has rheumatoid arthritis for years and it finally brought his active life to a halt with the what the spinal/orthopedic surgeon called stenosis of the spine. The x-rays and mri's showed the narrowing and compressing of the spine which was causing great pain due mostly to the sciatic nerve. I asked the surgeon if inversion would help and he of course said no way with this. I went ahead anyway to try and avoid eventual surgery. My father was game and I tried to buy a cheaper table but he insisted on this one and I am glad he held out. It has been a dream for us as it literally brought my father back to normalcy as the daily 10-20 minute sessions at the convenient preset angle has eliminated the back pain and leg pain to where he can now enjoy movements and walking without discomfort. He is lifting weights again and the happy face is back. I use it also and it has made my back much lither as I can turn completely and conformably doing golf or yoga. If you have the means get this one as it allows the most secure and varied routines and please try this before surgery if you can. You may get the same results and avoid surgery or heal better but know this machine works.
