Do Teeter Hang Ups Really Work?


Do Teeter Hang Ups work?Inversion tables are gaining in popularity, and Teeter Hang Ups claims to make the buying process a little easier. The basic premise here is that by flipping your body upside down you are relieving back pain and pressure, aligning your spine, and just feeling good in general. But the whole concept of inversion therapy has its share of dissenters, so how can you be sure that this will help you?

Overview
Inversion therapy has been around for a very long time, with modern testing on how well it works being conducted only as early as the 1960s. It has been used in conjunction with other treatments to alleviate back pain, improve blood circulation, and improve flexibility and posture. There are those that say this works, but there are also those that say it doesn’t. But in order to make up your own mind, you have to set aside the opinions of others for a bit, because you just don’t know what their motivation is.

The Claim
Teeter Hang Ups claims that by using their inversion table you can relieve back pain, improve the health of your joints, build muscle, and get better flexibility. They don’t say that it can cure every instance of back pain, in fact they even give you a diagram to help determine if their product can help you. That’s a refreshing break from back pain products that claim they can cure any ailment you have on any location of your back.

The Hype
There is some debate over inversion therapy, the same way there is debate over anything regarding alternative health and medicine. There is one side that claims it works, and another side that says it’s just quackery. Those that say there’s no validity to it could be a part of the medical community that would be threatened by a product that relieves back pain without the need for drugs and surgery. It might also be that chiropractors would be naysayers, since it would cut into their business.

There’s not a lot of motivation for people to say that it works, unless it does. Unless they are shills for an inversion table company and are paid to say that they are experiencing relief when they are in fact not.

The Cost
Teeter Hang Ups are not altogether too expensive for an inversion table. After all, if you’re going to be putting yourself into it you want it to be safe and be able to hold you up without dropping you on your head. Since many people aren’t familiar with inversion, they offer a 30 day trial by just paying $15 for shipping. If you decide to keep it, it’s $300 and they bill you for it in $100 increments for 3 months.

The Commitment
Using an inversion table is not hard to do, but making a habit out of it can prove to be a challenge. You have to dedicate yourself to using it daily for about 3 weeks if you want to form the habit and incorporate it into your daily routine.

Evaluation
When it comes to choosing an inversion table, there are a lot of factors to consider. The Teeter Hang Ups website makes it really easy to drill down to your different options, based on what your goal is. This way you don’t end up with a table that is for spinal adjustment when you are going for core strengthening.

One thing to keep in mind is how the unit is constructed. If you’re going to put the money into this you want to be sure you’ll get several years worth of use out of it. Since this is designed to support your entire body weight, it needs to be able to hold up to daily use over a long period of time. The Teeter Hang Ups line passes the test, according to those that have had theirs for several years, some over a decade. The positive reviews are plentiful, and the negative reviews almost non-existent. And no scathing reviews like those you see with the majority of products.

Final Teeter Hang Ups Review

Teeter Hang Ups are doing a good job at carving out their place in the inversion table market. There aren’t really a lot of viable competitors at this price point. You can pay a lot more for fancier ones from other manufacturers, but the basic functionality will be the same. You may never have thought that you would be able to have an inversion table in your home, as they’re normally something that those one percenters have in their mansions, but it’s not just a luxury for the ultra rich any more.

With their $15 in home trial, you can test it out in your home and if you don’t like it you don’t have to worry about paying the remaining balance. Of course, you’ll have to pay to ship it back too, but the total cost of the trial will be worth it to know if you want it or not. If it provides relief to persistent back pain, it will definitely be worth keeping.

Our Recommendation
It’s all about feeling good, and an inversion table can definitely help get you there. If you’ve never tried one, you should use their trial offer. But if you’re already gone upside down in one, you can confidently get a Teeter model that’s in line with your overall goals and be really happy that you got it. It’s a quality product, and comes with a 5 year warranty so you don’t have to worry about it breaking in the near future.

This product isn’t much cheaper than a regular inversion table, but it appears less bulky and more portable, so I guess it is better for home use.
Inversion therapy definitely works-most chiropractors use inversion tables on some or most of their patients. (So, if you’re not sure, you can probably try one out at a chiropractor’s office, first.)
Note, you can get the same effect by hanging on a set of monkey bars (both upside down and right side up), but it’s much more uncomfortable and possibly embarrassing. (It’s also much more difficult for adults to get back up and off the monkey bars.)
