    It's not going to be the same. There are times where I've 'thrown my back out' by just bending over to dry my feet when I get out of the shower. My issues are in the lumbar region of L4-L5 & L5-S1.

    yes; an inversion table may be quite helpful in that situation.

    Yep before I got the Teeter board all I would have to do is a little bend and twist the wrong way and I would feel it stab in my lower back. Then I'd be doing a stiff shuffle walk for a week.

    I got one from an ex-gf way back when, but I no longer use it. The concept is great, to decompress the back, but in my experience it introduces stretching on the knees and ankles may not be desirable. If it could secure the hips, that would solve that issue. I would suggest getting a pullup bar of some kind to help decompress that way. Also a BOSU balance trainer (the one with the flat bottom) is amazingly useful for exercise such as situps. Just leaning back on it in the situp style position can get the back to loosen up and even do a crack here and there.

    I got one and used used it twice.

    Don't have anything in your pockets, it's like that spinny car ride at the carnival.

    Found out today that my insurance company will cover getting one of these. All I need to do is get my doctor to write a prescription, which he already said he'd do, and then find a medical equipment company that takes my insurance that sells them. That's pretty cool and unexpected.

    I saw on TV that the Teeter got certified as an FDA medical device. What a deal!

    I had one of those once, but my dinner kept falling on the floor.

    Probably why the price rose drastically.
