The Teeter EP-560 Installation
One of the few downsides I have to say is assembling the Teeter EP-560. Keep in mind, assembling things like this is not my forte. Teeter claims that most of this inversion table comes pre-assembled and should only take about 20 minutes to put the rest of it together. It took me a lot longer to put it together.
It comes with an instruction manual and a DVD which was helpful. I found the DVD to be more helpful than the written instructions. Again, you should probably take my comments with a grain of salt. I am sure it would be a lot easier for you:)
Comfort & Support
The Teeter EP-560 features a head pillow and padded ankle cups for added comfort. If you use it on a consistent basis for long periods of time you could begin to feel some discomfort at the ankles. That all depends on your body weight. If you wear sneakers or socks you will have less discomfort.
The ComforTrak adds spinal comfort and is flexible providing complete support for all angles. In Addition, the builtin handles provide excellent grip. The secured lockout system allows for complete vertical inversion of your body.
Rugged & Durability
The Teeter EP-560 is well built and very durable. It is built to last, year after year without any major problems. It’s made to easily withstand tall and heavy people. However, if you are an overweight person, you may require some assistance in reverting yourself back to your original position from the inverted position you were in.
The Teeter EP-560 is very user-friendly. When you invert for the first time, you may feel a blood rush to your head and pressure. For some people, it can feel extremely intense. You should only invert 2 to 3 minutes max when you first start using this. Then gradually increase it over time.
You may hear or read comments like “Instead of running to a chiropractor, physical therapist or a physiotherapist, taking only 10 minutes a day on an inversion table can do wonders!”
Again, as I have said before I will provide honest input from my personal experiences. No matter if it’s good or bad. A chiropractor, physical therapist or a physiotherapist can do wonders as well!
By the way, a physical therapist and a physiotherapist are the same things. The label of a physiotherapist is used in countries like Canada, UK, and Australia.
If you can afford it and you have the time to go see a chiropractor? I would suggest going to see one.
An inversion table like the Teeter EP-560 is a table that you lay down on. Then the table can be adjusted to turn you upside down, letting gravity decompress the discs in your spine.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a process of making space between your vertebrae, this lets the oxygen and nutrients flow unobstructed to your spine. At the same time easing general and specific back pain. It can even help you to relieve migraines.
The chiropractor will help you through a quick stretch and release of your spine. This will aid in reshaping and re-hydrating the discs in your back. It can also relieve any pinched nerves.
If you have a series of decompression sessions, that will create a vacuum-like effect within your discs, to refresh the circulation and send hydration to the area, pushing it into a healthier shape. This process will vary with each chiropractor
Each of those methods has its pros and cons. Both can be very effective in reducing your intermittent or chronic lower back and neck pain. This is often due to herniated discs or degenerative disc disease. It will often help patients avoid having surgery on their spine.
As I already stated, probably the best benefit of having an inversion table is the money you will end up saving. But coming in at a close second is the convenience. Having an inversion table in your home enables you to invert and time you want. To me, that would be the biggest benefit.
Inversion Table & Chiropractor Combo
I use to own a Teeter inversion table. I had that inversion table at home but I was also seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis. For a while, that was a great combination until I ended up moving. My Teeter was someone how lost during the moving process. I was very bummed.
If you have the ability to get an inversion table for your home? Then at the same time be able to see a chiropractor on a regular basis, you will be golden! I was able to invert anytime I wanted and that really made a big difference with my back pain at the time.
The Teeter EP-560 Drawbacks
One drawback of this inversion table or any inversion table for that matter is it can be uncomfortable for some people. When you are inverted and hanging upside down. The blood that rushes to your head can feel very uncomfortable. But not for everyone.
You should be using an inversion table if you have any eye or cardiovascular medical problems. But that is something you should consult with your doctor or a medical professional.
Need to Know
Before you consider buying an inversion table there are a few things you need to know. First of all, you should always consult with your doctor or medical professional and let them know your plans for inversion therapy. Inversion therapy is often not recommended if you have high blood pressure, heart problems, and glaucoma.
That is why it’s imperative to check with your doctor or a medical professional prior to using an inversion table.
