When I was 40 years old until I was 50 I didn’t have any health coverage. That was when I first started looking for alternative methods to help cure my ailments. I had many, including a very bad back.
I had a lot of pain and muscle spasms that would come and go. Then, the pain never stopped. My back felt compressed and I was always in pain. I couldn’t lay, stand or sit without being in constant pain.
One day I saw an inverting machine where you snapped your ankles in and hung upside down. I tried it and felt pain while inverting. It was a good pain where I felt like something good was happening. When I got off the machine and started to walk away, I felt some immediate relief!
I knew I had to have one in my home as soon as I could get it! My back was in such bad shape, I only inverted on a 45 degree angle for about a year. If I fully inverted, my back would go into terrible spasms. The Teeter Hang Ups provides a teeter strap for inverting at different angles, which is very good if you are having back spasms.
If I didn’t invert every day, my back pain would return and send me right back to inverting again. Now, my back feels so good at times that I forget to invert for a while, and then my back reminds me that I must continue to invert on a daily basis! I always regret the time I do not invert consistently.
One day, a Chiropractor came to where I worked to give massages and gave everyone a coupon for free back xrays. I went to see if he could find out what was causing my back pain. I filled out a form and he called me in after viewing my xrays.
He told me that he was surprised that I had the least amount of pain of all the people from where I worked, but my spine looked the worst of anyone else. He told me that at the bottom of my spine it was severely curved and twisted. At that point, I stopped inverting on my machine at home.
From his maneuvering, pulling and twisting, my back pain became unbearable again and I wasn’t even able to make it to work for a full day. I had to alternate heat and ice constantly. Weeks drug into months, and I was still unable to sleep, stand or sit without constant pain and I was still going to his office for therapy three times a week.
I even went to another Chiropractor for a second opinion. He told me the same thing the other Chropractor did. He thought he could help me, but when he found out the other doctor had purchased some traction tables for his office, he told me that it would be best to give traction a try.
I tried the traction in my Chriropractor’s office and started using my inverting machine at home a couple of times per day along with the other treatment. Things began to turn around very quickly.
The Chiropractor told me that I would need to invert at home two to three times per day for the rest of my life to keep my back straight and to keep the pain and inflammation down. I will never be without an inverting machine and I will use it every day!!!
It only takes around 5 minutes to do and once you have paid for the machine, your treatments you do on your own time are free of charge other than the little time you invest hanging upside down.
There are many other benefits of the inverting machine. It helps to drain sinuses, brings blood to the head for clearer thinking, helps to build more capillaries to the brain so you can learn faster, helps give you good posture, helps to normalize blood pressure, gives your heart a much needed rest, and in some instances, normalize weight, just to name a few.
If you have back problems, my advice to you is to get an xray of your back to determine what is causing your back pain. If your disks are bulging, have curvature of the spine, lower back pain, pain in your hips, walk funny, one hip higher than the other, or any of those kind of problems, perhaps a simple solution to your problem would be an inverting machine in your home.
You can get on it at your convenience and after the initial investment, get free and immediate relief from your back pain whenever you need it!!! The inversion machine is something you do on a daily basis to keep your back straight and healthy. If you back off and stop inverting, your problems may very well soon return.
So, get the machine that works for you and get back into control of your pain and live a life full of the things you love to do!!! In my case, it has provided me a way to live with my bad back and provided me with a life where I can continue to work, play and be a blessing to my family!
