I had serious back trouble for over 25 years. I went to many different physiotherapists, chiropractors and osteopaths.
Physio was somewhat effective, the other two therapies just made it worse, one session with a chiropractor almost crippled me (slight exaggeration)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with a ruptured L5 disc and had an epidural with steroid injection to disolve the bulging nucleus, which showed on my MRI was
protruding through and pushing against my Sciatic nerve about the length of the first joint on your pinkie finger. It was thoroughly debilitating and
agony and I was an Ibuprofen junkie for almost a year.
The injection removed one problem but replaced it with another. A flat disc which then created regular inflammation, so more regular pain.
In 1998 I started my own fitness business and pretty soon discovered this company:
I purchased my first display table and started to use the product. It was absolute agony for the first six weeks due to so many years of stressed
muscles, inflamed lumbar region and locking facets, but eventually gravity did its wonderful trick on me.
I am a zealot when it comes to the subject of inversion. This product cured
me without any doubt. Now I use the table perhaps twice a week for
3-5 minutes and still enjoy the rush of oxygen to the brain along with the satisfying stretch to my spine; its especially useful after a long session
sitting reading and responding to ATS threads lolol.
Highly recommended and if it wasn't for the fact that I'm almost 43, I would now be out doing this:
