I began using your product five days ago. I had to learn which settings and how to position the ankle supports to work best for me, but the results are wonderful. I have a severe disc problem in my neck, which has caused me problems for years, and has adversely affected my golf game this year. I have noticed an increased level of comfort after using the Teeter Hang Ups for just the few days. I can’t wait to get back on the golf course. Thank you.
Most of the time, a pinched nerve is not a serious medical issue, but it can really feel like one! According to the Mayo Clinic,”a pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues – such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons.

Decompressing to relieve stress, back pain and joint pain is just one way to benefit from using an inversion table. Building a strong core is vital to the protection and function of the spine. A solidly-designed inversion table or gravity boots and a doorway rack are great platforms for core exercises. Inverted sit-ups help to quickly define abs without placing potentially harmful loads on the spine.
When doing inverted exercises, an inversion table can experience loads of up to 3x your body weight due to bouncing and movement! Remember to look for the UL Mark so you can be confident in the quality of the equipment you are using. Empty claims of high quality or safe by inversion table manufacturers don’t mean anything without independent certification to UL standards. Currently, Teeter Hang Ups is the only brand certified to the UL 1647 standard, which includes specific requirements for inversion tables.
