I am looking for help and recommendations on using an inversion table to relieve spinal back pain. I have always had a fear of not being able to right myself back up. any information will be greatly appreciated. thx

I don't know of your muscular physical condition but my grandmother used to have one, and she was able to right herself easily, on her own power.. Depending on where you put it, you might can anchor a rope above you so you can help pull your self up.

I have had one for yrs.
set it to your height, raise your arms to go back, put them by your side to go up. sometimes I have to assist a little but not often. I am 6'1" and 215#.

start with the retention strap set to about 45* and get used to it, work to full inversion and staying there for a few mins. I hang for 5-10 and relax as best I can, lower back is afu and the table helps a lot.

I got an ironman on wal mart online, shipped to door for free and only about 225.00 all in. link is the one I have.

Are the ankle restraints comfortable? I had some gravity boots and they were not very comfortable.

We got one two Christmas’s ago and I use it occasionally. I think ours goes 45, 60 and then 90 degrees. 45 and 60 are simple to right up from. 90 is a little more difficult, but it’s not hard. When you are completely inverted, the foot restraints on ours aren’t the most comfortable things in the world, but you aren’t spending 30 minutes in them either. We got ours at Academy and I think I bought the one that was about $150.


Thanks,
Rich

I got a teeter and it is a lifesaver for my lower back problems. I don't do it everyday, in fact I only get on it when I have pain. I'll do it 2 or 3 times on a day with pain where I can barely walk and the next day I feel 50% better than I did.

Mine doesn't come up quite as easy as putting your arms down, but I can get myself back up even when I can barely walk

Inversion table is the only thing that works for me. Have 3 dislocated discs in lower back and sciatica. I spent thousands at the Chiropractor and only made things worse, physical therapy nothing worked until I bought a $150 table at Academy. Don’t go 90% right off the bat, I did and hurt myself. Start off with less angle and work yourself into it. Taking muscle relaxers before inverting helps too, but hate taking them.

I had a herniated disc on my lower back. Spine Dr. says shots or surgery. I asked about spinal decompression.. He said it wasn't FDA approved so he couldn't recommend it but has had a lot of patients have good success w/them. I bought the best one there was, a Teeter's. Used it for a few minutes a few days a week & after ~3 months, herniated disc was corrected. It was a lifesaver!
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS or it WILL cause more pain.
Take it SLOWWWWWWW.

Be very careful. If your back pain is from certain things, an iversion table can hurt you. I used one and was in the Emergency room the next day. If you have serious back issue like herniated discs or previous back surgeries Id stay away from them.

I had a herniated disc when I first got on mine, and hurt myself worse because I went straight to full incline. When I say hurt, I mean cannot walk across the room without help. Cannot get in/out of truck or bed, hit a bump, fart etc...., extreme crippling pain. I started over at less of an angle and it made a huge difference. Took the pain away like nothing else after a few days/weeks. Was able to get off of my pain pills and Celebrex.

Did you start off too quickly (ie. too inverted)? It's a slow process.
