How to Buy an Inversion Table for Chronic Back Pain Relief

Inversion TableHow to Buy an Inversion Table for Chronic Back Pain Relief

Inversion therapy is perhaps the oldest method for obtaining natural back pain relief.  The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates would tie sufferers of lower and upper back pain to a ladder, and then turn them upside down.  This method may have worked, but it was quite uncomfortable, as well as a bit frightening for the patient!

Fortunately modern times have brought safer alternatives.  A back pain inversion table is a terrific choice for those seeking relief.  Not all of these devices are created equal, however.  Below are some guidelines that will help you to buy an inversion table that will provide relief for chronic back pain.

First, do your homework.  Make a list of features that are important to you.  Before you buy an inversion table, you want to make sure that the one you’re considering will accommodate your height and weight.  Most of the tables on the market today are designed for persons weighing up to 350 pounds who stand as tall as 6’6”.  Check the product information anyway, though, just to be sure that it’s a good match for you.

Second, read reviews.  The Internet is a great place to find real comments from consumers who have bought inversion tables. Check their overall ratings, but also read their individual feedback, paying special attention to what they liked and disliked.  Such information can be very valuable when it comes to making your final choice.

Lastly, take a few tables for a “test drive” if you can.  Retailers at your local mall may have demonstration models that you can try out yourself.  Note how comfortable the supports are, how easily the table inverts, and how well it keeps its balance.

You will not have this option if you buy an inversion table online, so if you use an online retailer, make sure that you choose a reputable dealer with a no-hassle return policy in case you have to send it back.
