"I had suffered from degenerated discs for over twenty years, for twelve of those years I was in constant agony and nothing could take the pain away. That was how I lived untill I tried the Teeter, it was the only thing that gave me relief. I never dreamed it would fix my back because too many doctors and specialists told me it was stuffed but one go on the Teeter and I was pain free for half an hour, after a couple of weeks using the Teeter and the pain was staying away longer until, after about three months, I was pain free."
The Teeter inversion table uses gravity to apply traction, the traction gently opens the discs and as they open up they create a suction, this suction draws fluid from the surrounding tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating them.
Discs do not have their own blood supply, they rely on transfer of fluid from the surrounding tissue to keep them healthy and hydrated, unfortunately over the years as discs get thinner with age, they lose the ability to take on fluid (just like squeezing a sponge) and they start to de-hydrate. De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are harder, more prone to injury, they interfere with nerve roots creating pain and ultimately the de-hydration causes degeneration. The Teeter Inversion table slowly and gently brings the hydration back into the discs, plumping them up. This brings back lost height (most people will regain around 2 CM of height), it separates the nerve roots far more effectively and returns quality of life.
A lot of pain is muscular, when muscles are stressed they become tight which restricts the flow of blood and lymph through the muscles so toxins build up, Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle rocking motion that stimulates circulation and encourages blood flow through the muscles, which clears the lactic acid into your lymph system where it stimulates lymph flow and deals with it. Most people with serious neck issues see a large improvement after only one treatment.
Poor posture is one of the major cases of pain and is a major contributor to the deterioration of the body with age. A difference in leg length causes most of the hip and knee issues, as they continue to place uneven loads on the joints; similar to the wheels out of alignment on your car. Trying to correct posture is extremely difficult due to muscle memory, as it constantly pulls the muscles back to where they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more on the Teeter, you are providing enough traction to realign body, using the table twice daily, does not allow the muscle memory to pull them back out of alignment and slowly the muscles start to lose their memory allowing the body to come back into correct posture. Then using the table once a day will ensure it is kept there.
This is pure logic, if a machine is out of alignment it does not last long, the only difference between the body and a machine is that the body is constantly repairing itself, however if the wear and tear on the body is greater than the body’s ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline. The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its decline and allows the body to repair itself, resulting in a far healthier life.
Osteoarthritis is an inflamation in the spine. By inverting you seperate the inflamed surfaces and allow fluid to enter. Then rhythmic traction stimulates circulation around the inflamed area, reducing the inflamation.
Relax tense muscles
A lot of back pain is muscular. Inverting to as little as 20 degrees for a few minutes can help relax muscles and speed up lymph flow. Rhythmic traction washes blood up and down the body, this stimulates the muscles and relaxes them.
If scoliosis is something you have had from a very young age when the bones hardened, the chances of fixing it completely is slim because the bones have already hardened in that shape, but by using the Teeter regularly at 90 degrees it will stop it getting any worse. If it is resulting from an injury later in life then by using the Teeter you can slowly realign your spine back to good posture.
Sciatica/ Herniated disc
The Teeter uses gravity to apply traction. The traction gently opens the discs creating a suction, this suction draws fluid in from the surrounding tissue rehydrating them.
This suction will also reduce the bulge, sucking it back into place over time, removing pressure off the nerve.
Most medical professionals do not advise inverting
if you suffer from high blood pressure, however their definition of inverting is hanging completely upside down. Full inversion, or even inverting to the greater angles is not advised until your blood pressure has normalised. The benefiting treatment is rhythmic traction, this stimulates blood flow up and down the body. As you change sides the heart then has to pump blood either from the feet to the head or the head to the feet, this increases the efficency of the system in the body in control of your blood pressure called the Autonomic Nervous System, (ANS).
The back is supported by hundreds of ligaments and muscles that stabilize the spine but also hold it in compression. When the back moves out of alignment from bad posture, too much sitting, or rotational activities, this support structure holds the body in misalignment. Even while lying down, your spine maintains 25% of pressure. In order to fully decompress you need to invert to an angle of 60 degrees. This type of decompression gently opens up the discs and naturally re-aligns the spine and weight bearing joints. This is also excellent for improving correct posture.
