It is always nice to hear about a satisfied Teeter Hang Ups customer, especially from a professional who faces physical therapy challenges daily.
Many people, like Gary Briggs, use inversion therapy for a competitive advantage. It has been demonstrated that stretching with inversion not only relieves back pain, but it also leads to increased performance when working out or when engaged in physical activity.
I am 6’7″ tall, so I can (almost) identify with the back pain aliments of a professional basketball player. Everything in the world is designed for much shorter people, so I am constantly sitting incorrectly, reaching improperly, or bending. Keep in mind that taller folks have the same number of vertebrae to carry the load as a shorter person.
“Just want to let you know how much my players, staff, and management benefited from using the Teeter DEX and Inversion Table. You can imagine the amount of spinal compression that professional basketball players are subjected to, and low-back pain is a constant malady. With occasional use of either one or both, we have greatly reduced our low-back problems. Thanks again for making these items available to us.”

How Athletes Are Using Teeter Inversion Equipment
Decompressing and training with Teeter inversion equipment can help the athlete stretch, relax and realign for improved flexibility and agility, mitigate compression fatigue in all weight-bearing joints, and provide an ideal platform for building core strength.
Pre-season, strength and conditioning coaches guide their athletes through inversion prior to strength training and for workout cool-down.
During the season, athletic trainers are incorporating inversion into players’ treatment protocols to address back injuries, muscle strains and help recover from highly compressive activities.
In the off-season, countless athletes rely on their own inversion equipment at home to help maintain their flexibility and mobility and remain primed for future workouts.
