Contraindications

Inverting with a Teeter inversion table can provide innumerable benefits to your health. Inversion can reduce back pain, decompress the spine, stretch muscles, relieve stress, improve circulation, and help maintain a state of functional fitness.

However, as much as they may be a way of how to relieve back pain, a back stretcher or inversion table is not for everyone. If you have any of the following health conditions, please do not invert without the approval of your licensed physician (this is not an exhaustive list; it is intended only for your reference.)

  • Middle ear infection
  • Extreme obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Hiatal or ventral hernia
  • Spinal injury
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • High blood pressure or hypertension
  • Heart or circulatory disorders
  • Use of anticoagulants (including high doses of aspirin)
  • Weakness or frailty
  • Dizziness, trouble with coordination or head-down disorientation
  • Vertigo, motion sickness or inner ear disorders
  • Brain injury or recent head trauma
  • Recent stroke or transient ischemic attack
  • Recent or unhealed fractures
  • Cerebral sclerosis
  • Acutely swollen joints
  • Bone weakness (osteoporosis)
  • Eye conditions like glaucoma, retinal detachment or conjunctivitis
  • Medullary pins or surgically implanted orthopedic supports
  • Any other medical condition that may be made more severe by an elevation of blood pressure, intracranial pressure or the mechanical stress of the inverted position
