Teeter Inversion Table – If you are looking for an inversion table there are several out on the market to choose from. Having so many choices to choose, how do you know which one will be the best one for you?
Questions you might be asking yourself could be? Which brand has the best reputation? Which inversion table will give you the most for your money? The teeter inversion table is by far the premiere inversion table leading the pack.
The Teeter Inversion Table is in fact, the only inversion table currently on the market that is FDA Approved and Registered as 510(k) Medical Device. It’s developed for providing traction to your spine while stretching the paraspinal muscles.
In the next couple of sections, I talk about the muscles along the spine and back. If you want, you can skip these sections, and go directly to the Teeter Inversion Table(s). Otherwise, read on…
What are the Paraspinal Muscles?
( Take Me to View Price & Video )
The paraspinal muscles are also referred to as the erector spinae muscles. These muscles are located along your spine. They travel from your occipital bone which is located at the lower part of the back of your head. They run all the way down to the sacrum which is located at the bottom of your spine.
Your spine is an incredible and arduous creation. Most of us do not think about our spine and all the hard work it does. Then when your back starts hurting you are reminded once again.
Our spines are surprisingly versatile and flexible. It can bend back and forth, as well as side to side. Additionally, it can be twisted.
Think about that the next time you watch an athlete at a sporting event. What is the spine doing to support the athlete and their movements? Our spines are complicated masterful works of art that are supported by 140 overlapping, intertwined and interconnected muscle groups. To sum it up, it’s one very thick wall of muscle.
Muscles of Your Back
Those interconnected muscles are relatively small in stature but very strong. They help you bend from side to side. The Interspinal muscles are responsible for taking care of the back and forward bending motions. Next, there are the rotator muscles and their purpose is to help you rotate your trunk area.
Then there is the erector spinae which is made up of two large muscles. The erector spinae lays over the three muscle groups mentioned above and lines both sides of your spine. The erector spinae is your spine’s principal muscles acting as an anchor. They keep you from tipping too far forward and aid in holding your body upright. The erector spinae also works as a shock absorber and takes on the majority of the stress your spine experiences.
The top layer of the muscles for supporting your spine are those responsible for moving other parts of your body. The latissimus dorsi and trapezius muscles move your arms, but they also work with the erector spinae to support the entire spine and protect it.
Your abdominal muscles are very important when it comes to your spine’s health. They support your lumbar area which is the lower region of your spine. Many of us may not associate the abdominal region with the back. When you strengthen your abdominal muscles and they are strong, it can really help in preventing future back pain.
Importance of Muscle & Mobility
Muscle strengthens and supports the health of your spine. When you keep the muscle groups I mentioned above, healthy, and in good condition. It’s clearly the best thing you can do for the health and protection of your spine against chronic back pain, disease, and injury. Consistent and moderate exercise that targets these muscle groups is essential.
Regardless, if you have any back issues or not? You need to maintain mobility in your life and never get too stagnant. When you neglect yourself from any physical activity for long periods of time, there are short and long-term negative effects you could end up facing.
Short-term negative effects: If you suffer from occasional or chronic back pain and remain a couch potato all day. It will most likely make your pain worse. I know it always makes my chronic back pain worse.
Long-term negative effects: Based on an article by John Hopkins Medicine the lack of physical activity has contributed to health conditions like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, which may increase the risk of certain cancers, obesity and more.

Third-Party Safety Certification
When you have a mark from an independent product safety testing group like the Underwriters Laboratories (UL). You are able to verify the safety and quality of an inversion table and its reliability. The UL Mark symbolizes that the product meets the standards for the exclusive functions of an inversion table in testing which replicates “real world” use.
You’ll find the UL Certified mark on every Teeter Inversion Table to verify that they are all certified. Based on comments from UL, having the UL Mark on a product is the only way to identify that a product is UL Certified
Who is Underwriters Laboratories (UL)?
The UL (Underwriters Laboratories) has over 120 years of experience providing one of the best and most respected third-party certifiers in the US. It audits, tests, certifies, verifies, inspects, and validates products to meet the standards. In addition, it educates consumers about the product’s safety and quality. It also advises manufacturers on creating safer products.
The majority of inversion tables look the same and it’s next to impossible to see the difference online. An inversion that looks OK on the surface could have been made incorrectly, corners cut to save money, that could jeopardize the condition and user safety.
Teeter suggests being cautious when it comes to cheap inversion tables. “They are cheap for a reason and are typically made with low-grade materials and cost-cutting techniques.” I know this first hand to be true but there are some that do a decent job.
A report was published by the global consumer product testing and quality assurance firm “MTS” in 2017. After testing, it clearly pointed out the differences in product quality among inversion tables based on the UL 1647 safety standards. The tests were performed on a group of widely-distributed inversion table models.
Teeter was the only brand to meet every standard. Plus, the competing inversion tables took an average of two and a half times longer to assemble.
Impacting Quality and Safety
There are features that can be built into an inversion table to help with security, improve its usability, and enhance the benefits. All of these quality and safety features are included in every Teeter model:
Made with heat-treated steel. This is a manufacturing method for making steel 10 times stronger than normal steel. The Teeter Inversion Table is created from a precision-balanced design. Making arm movements a breeze, using minimal effort.
Accidental separation of the bed from the base during stretching or exercising can be a concern when using an inversion table. Not to worry, Teeter takes care of that with their auto-locking hinges.
Teeter focuses on form, function, and safety. That translates into you and your family can trust in Teeter.
Built for the Benefits
The finest inversion tables are built with certain features that will enhance the user experience and results. Teeter has almost four decades of inversion experience and knows how to maximize your experience to provide you with pain relief.
As an example, a smooth inversion table bed surface will reduce any friction and help your body to slide to achieve the most out of a decompressive stretch. This is very important for back pain relief.
It comes with Grip-and-Stretch Handholds to provide added stretching options. Exclusive Acupressure Nodes and Lumbar Bridge allow you to enhance your pain relief.
Four Decades of Refining a Better Table
Let’s face it, you can not scrimp on the quality and safety when you’re hanging upside down. Well-built is an understatement when it comes to any Teeter product. The Teeter Inversion Table is built with very durable, dependable heat-treated components and their own patented safety features. Do not forget, it is also certified to UL safety standards.
