"I use the inversion table about three to four times per week now and I would say I am 90% pain free most of the time and 99% pain free for the remainder of the time. I rarely take pills anymore if at all. I play golf again which is something I thought I would never do again, but more importantly, I can play with my three year old son which is a blessing to me. The Teeter Inversion Table is the best thing I own. It saved my life. I am 6'4" and still close to 300 lbs. and I have no problems or fear of inverting on the table and hanging upside down. I recommend the Teeter Inversion Table to anyone suffering with back pain. Do yourself, your back and your family a favor and get one. Make your life normal again." - M. Rabiner, North Vancouver, BC
"I first inverted at my Chiropractor and received such a dramatic result that day, that I got on the internet and came to the conclusion that the Teeter Hang Ups was the best out there. After buying and receiving the F5000, I was TOTALLY impressed with the QUALITY of the product, packaging, and materials. I am an electrical engineer, so it is hard to please me in this regard! I have a recently diagnosed herniated L4/L5 disk and have had low back problems for 20 or so years, so I have been looking for alternatives to surgery and a way to reduce/eliminate my need for pain medication. Since using the F5000 for almost 3 weeks, I have found that my pain has significantly reduced (Sciatica mostly) and I am able to do more than I have in the last several months. I use the table once a day (right before bedtime) for about 5-10 minutes and have been doing some of the stretching (at full inversion) shown on the DVD. I am able to relax much more quickly now and am looking forward to the long-term benefits that this form of exercise affords. Thanks so much, Teeter!" - K. Anderson,
"My husband had begun contemplating back surgery to relieve his pain, and I got concerned. He has a very physical job as a Tree and Stump Removal expert. The last few years he has been experiencing increasingly agonizing pain and was taking pain meds multiple times daily to get some temporary relief. The doctors gave him no hope of eliminating the pain, even with the surgery... I, myself, have had back problems ever since I can remember. In January I bought the F7000 inversion table. I did quite a lot of research on inversion and various products, and had settled on the Teeter [Hang Ups Inversion Table]. My husband has been able to reduce taking his meds to only once a day 2 or 3 times a week, and has reduced the number of times he must lie flat each day... He is no longer contemplating back surgery right now and may be able to put it off indefinitely if he continues to improve with inversion. I use the inversion table every other day for about 3 minutes and have noticed the sciatic pain has been greatly reduced, my back pain has become more the exception than the norm, and I feel better in general. In fact, I can work all day without constant pain and I even felt good enough to join a "health and fitness" group. THANK YOU, Teeter Hang Ups...You've given us hope." - D. Liberto, Clarence Center, NY
"I am a diagnostic radiologist who has abused his back through sports, hard work and horses for years. About seven years ago, I began to experience back and left leg pain that progressed rapidly. An MRI revealed a lot of degenerative changes in my lumbar spine with two inter-vertebral discs that were herniated and for all practical purposes "worn out". I've been on anti-inflammatories for at least five years with some minimal relief. Five years ago I began to experience numbness in some of my left toes with sciatica in the left hip and leg. This progressed to the point of constant pain and loss of feeling. Six months ago I began to have loss of motor function in my left toes. I have seen the poor results of surgery on a daily basis on MRI's of lumbar discectomy. That was not an option.
A friend who is a sales rep for radiographic equipment, whom I have known for 15 years, told me about the inversion table. My friend had suffered back problems for years and I had seen him many times at the hospital in terrible pain, so I knew he had tried everything. He told me how he had become pain free in about two months using an inversion table. If it had come from almost anyone else I would not have believed it. I ordered one that day. In one week of use, twice to three times per day, the numbness in my toes improved 100%. During the second week I slept my first pain free night in five years. I'm starting my third week tomorrow. This probably won't work for everyone, nothing does, but it is helping me greatly." - Ken Hamilton, M.D.
"I suffered a severe lower back injury in September 2001 which required surgery and a lengthy rehabilitation. It took me almost one year to feel somewhat normal, but I was never without back pain and always needed pain medication to just get by. My doctor had diagnosed me with degenerative disc disease, or arthritis of the spine. By the Spring of 2004, my condition had worsened and spread to my neck. I was experiencing severe pain in my neck with numbness radiating down my right arm. My doctor told me I would need another surgery to decompress the discs in my neck which were pinching the nerves to my arm. Without the surgery, I was told I could suffer permanent nerve damage and possibly the use of my arm. I had read all the literature concerning neck surgery and the risks were very significant. Around this time, my wife saw the Teeter Hang Ups commercial on television and heard you speak of "decompression". She immediately told me about your product. I looked into inversion therapy and it seemed to be worth a try, after all, anything is better than another surgery.
I consulted with my doctor before I tried the Teeter Hang Ups and he agreed it was okay for me to try inversion therapy. I started out slowly, but quickly gained confidence and felt almost immediate relief from my pain and the numbness in my arm decreased significantly. As a matter of fact, I underwent an electro-mylograph (EMG) test after 2 weeks of using the Teeter F5000. The EMG consisted of a neurologist inserting needles into my arm and neck to measure the electrical performance of my nerves. Of the many readings the doctors took, only one was slightly out of tolerance. In a short 2 weeks of inversion therapy, I was virtually cured and did not require surgery. Today as I write this, I no longer experience any numbness in my arms, and my back and neck pain are virtually nonexistent. I went from prescription pain medication to one aspirin a day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Teeter inversion therapy has given me back my life!"- E Peterson, Waldorf, MD
"It is such an honor and a pleasure to let others know that your product can change lives. I have bought a treadmill since I last communicated with you, and I am "walking" a half-mile on it everyday. I never would have had been able to make such a decision if I hadn't first bought your inversion table. When I first started out on the treadmill, I walked for only 10 minutes, then worked up to 15, then 20, etc. My next goal is to walk 3/4 of a mile, then go for a mile! I have been too much the "couch potato" during the years that I was fighting breast cancer, so I knew that I needed to start out slow and work up to whatever goals I set. Besides being able to walk a 1/2 mile on my treadmill, I am now able to take my precious German Shepherd Dog for her walks, which she dearly loves. I am now on the way to losing the extra weight that I gained, from not being able to be on my feet for no longer than 10 or 15 minutes, due to horrific pain. The inversion table helps to control the low back pain that had robbed me of my life.
I meant it when I said that the first time on the inversion table, felt like heaven! Tears came to my eyes, as I felt the muscles, ligaments, etc. just kind of "give up" and relax. It felt so wonderful. I invert 2-3 times a day. I don't ever want to have the pain that I was experiencing before I got the table. Thank you so much for bringing such a hope-giving product to folks like me!!!" - M.E. Richter, Tuscola, TX
"I looked around at all the various brands and talked to several people who owned them. After selecting what I thought were the top three tables, I went to look at the quality of each one to determine the best. It has always been my experience that purchasing the best quality will ensure long and happy use of a product, so I wanted to make sure I was buying the best. You may spend a bit more, but it is well worth it in the long run. When I compared the three tables, there was absolutely no doubt in my mind as to which I was going to buy; the Hang Ups. The other brands were not only of lesser quality, but at 6'1" and 210 pounds, I did not feel comfortable with their durability or sturdiness. The Hang Ups is a very solid and well-constructed piece of equipment that is easy to use. It also withstands the abuse my 25-year old athletic son gives it when doing exercises. With the daily dose of glucosamine and using my inversion table, I have gone totally pain-free for the last three years. I could not be happier with my Hang Ups table and I give it my highest recommendation over everything else on the market..." - C. Peterson, Ashburn, VA
"The idea of elevating aching feet is not a novel one to me, but with the inversion table it takes on a whole new meaning; I can LITERALLY feel the pains and aches melting away. The inverted position relieves stress from my "compressed" joints and back and improves circulation in my feet (they used to be cold all the time - a classic sign of poor circulation). The first time I used it was the first time in a LONG time that I had a full night sleep, after stretching myself for just a half an hour on the inversion table. I woke up rested and I had NO stiff muscles or joints. Heck, I didn't even need coffee and aspirin that morning!!! In closing, I think the inversion table is a health savior. I strongly urge everyone to buy one." - M. Franczuk, London, Ont.
"Just wanted to let you know that I am a proud owner of a Teeter Inversion Table since Aug. 1998. I must say it is a great machine; very professionally built. I truly believe that it has helped me with not only stretching my spine but also helps me maintain it's alignment. I make the time to use it on a regular basis, in my busy work schedule even if it is only for a few minutes. I feel especially great after the inversion when the blood circulates much more easily throughout the body, including the head. My wife has also learned to appreciate this machine... It also makes a great conversation piece, when our friends and neighbors see it. Congratulations!" - Tony, Ottawa, Ont.
"I purchased the inversion table 3 years ago. I had a very bad time with my back and couldn't stand in the morning when I awoke. The premise seemed to make sense and so I ordered it. I did, however, have one concern. When I was little I suffered from motion sickness and to this day have a problem from time to time with dizziness due to the muscles in my neck. I set up the inversion table as soon as I received it. However, I was afraid to invert even slightly because I was afraid of the rush of blood to my head. So I walked around it daily for about three weeks. Everyone else in my house used it right away and really enjoyed it but I couldn't get up the nerve. Finally my husband insisted and I got on. I didn't invert right away but was so surprised when there wasn't a blood rush to my head and I wasn't nauseous or dizzy! I was so surprised. What a wonderful feeling to get the weight off my legs and my back! I was thrilled. I use the table regularly now and haven't had a back problem since. My friends can't believe how I've recovered and I can't believe how much better I feel. My neck problem has reduced in severity as well. I never expected that! Thank you! I love it!" - Linda London, Ont. Read More Testimonials...
