Ted gave inversion a try to relieve sciatic and knee pain. He had a hero rescue him from pain that had been chronic and restrictive. Here is his Teeter story of healing:
By Leah Stippich
As the nanny for the CEO of Teeter, Rylie Leier, I was exposed to a unique perspective of the company and employees. When I was first asked to come in for an interview, Rylie sent me a link of their website. She told me that I should check it out and see a little bit about what they do, since I will be so closely involved with their family. My initial reaction was skepticism, thoughts like, “hanging upside down certainly didn’t seem like a fix for back pain,” and “there was no way people were actually buying into this!”

Have you ever driven by a restaurant but were afraid to go in for fear of being disappointed? I have. And then a friend of yours tells you about how good the food was and you finally check it out, thinking, “OMG! Why didn’t I come sooner?”
The same thing happens in many areas of our lives. It’s human nature to stick to the same old stuff, the same routines, the same old habits. I’ve read that most people eat only about 15 foods. That’s it! I can tell you personally my eating habits have changed drastically over the last twenty years. A big part of that is getting more educated about what is really healthy and what is not. It reminds me of this quote, It’s better to know and be disappointed, than to never know and always wonder. How many times have you wondered, what if? What if I had gone there, tasted that, done that or said that. Could of, should of, would of…
As a Chiropractor, I often wonder how people live without chiropractic care. Well, it’s simple. You Don’t Know What You Are Missing Until You Know What You’ve Been Missing. You have nothing to compare it to. Many people don’t realize just how much stress and tension they have until they have had a good chiropractic adjustment. People say things like, I had no idea I was so tight or Wow! I feel so much lighter, taller, better!
I’m always looking for methods or products to improve health and help me and my patients feel better. I went to a conference in Hawaii 23 years ago on new treatments for the spine. That is where I first experienced pain relief from Inversion. I was fortunate to have discovered Inversion by accident. I was not in a lot of pain but it was rather a dull ache. My first reaction was, WOW! Where do I get one of these machines!?” My lower back felt instantly better. It felt really good! It was one of those situations where You Don’t Know What You Are Missing Until You Know What You’ve Been Missing. Needless to say, I have been using Inversion personally and with thousands of my patients since that conference.
But here’s the funny thing. When I talk to people about it, I’m so passionate about Inversion. People tell me, You are really passionate about this, aren’t you? But not everyone gets as excited or wants to try it. It goes back to habits and not knowing what you have been missing. Here’s what I’d like to leave you with: Life is so full of surprises. You just need to discover and form new habits. You’ve got to be willing to try new things. I promise your life will be so much better! Who knows… it might be the missing thing to help you live a Healthier, Happier and Pain Free Life!Dr. Carlos M.

When we say quality we are actually talking about:
- The engineering behind the inversion table
- the materials used to make the inversion table,
- and the validation of this statement by third-party evaluation.
Since Roger Teeter first started making inversion tables in 1981, we have made over 100 upgrades to our product. From Teeter’s precision balancing to the patented technologies that make your inversion experience more secure and comfortable, our engineering is a result of listening to our customers and striving to achieve the best inversion experience.
The materials we use are simply better. The metal tubing used to make the A-frames is thicker than other inversion tables. The heat-treated steel hinge that allows the table rotate so smoothly lasts over 25 years longer than our competitors. Better parts make a better product.Top-Rated
We don’t simply make claims of quality and say, Trust us! For the past decade Teeter inversion tables have been tested by a third-party forensic engineer against other competing inversion tables on the market.
The reviewing engineer builds his evaluation around a testing protocol from Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL), a company that has established safety and quality guidelines for consumer products for over 100 years. UL 1647 was designed to specifically evaluate inversion tables in real-world use and make sure they cut the mustard. When measured against our competitors, we don’t just come in 1st place in every test, but the data shows that the other inversion tables fail to come close to the minimum standards determined for safe consumer use. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself:
UL says an inversion tables should be able to hold 4 times their rated user weight (called a safety factor). This is because inversion tables experience loads of 2-3 times the user weight during full inversion with exercise. Teeter inversion tables were rated at a 4.8 safety factor, while some tables didn’t even hold the weight limit listed on their box!
A cycle starts the inversion table in its upright position, inverts backwards to full inversion and returns fully upright. Considering most inversion tables are used 4 times per day by a family of two, most competitors didn’t last more than 2 years (under 3,000 cycles) before they broke due to torn or bent metal! However, the Teeter inversion table lasted over 27 years (that’s 40,000 cycles) without failure before the test was stopped due to time!
Let’s face it, the last thing you want to do when your product arrives is spend a lot of time on your hands and knees slouched over a bunch of little screws. That’s why most of our tables come 90% assembled (at the very least, 85%), and take only 15 minutes to assemble! Other tables average at 71 minutes and one even took over 2 hours of assembly time!
UL 1647 Listed
Not only does UL create the standards for quality and safety on consumer products, but they make sure product actually meets all of them before they let a product bear the UL mark. That is why we are proud to say that all of Teeter’s home-use inversion tables* are the only tables available to consumers that are UL 1647 Listed.

Have you seen that successful series of commercials by an online bank that shows kids being offered something fun and enticing by an authority-figure? The offer is never what is seems and they end up feeling disappointed in the end.
When shopping for an inversion table, you may find you have similar experiences with the features, benefits, and quality statements made by other manufacturers you’re tempted by their offer, but if you actually assemble and use it, you’ll often find that those claims don’t hold water.
That doesn’t happen with Teeter. We are who we say we are. Our product is what we say it is. It does what we say it does. Teeter has been making the best inversion tables on the market for 30 years because our customers appreciate our superior quality, friendly service and the fact that we deliver on the promises we make.
