|2000 Year Old Back Pain Treatment
Could a true back pain cure with an incredible success rate
get covered up?
Even if it has millions of success stories and a
2000 year track record?
Would you believe that for over 2000 years the medical community has been
ignoring a time-tested and proven treatment for back pain?
As you've likely experienced, most doctors are too busy treating the symptoms
of back pain with treatment like anti-inflammatory medications, electrical
stimulation, ultrasound and cortisone injections, and they simply ignore what is
one of the biggest factors that contributes to back pain.
This contributing factor is spinal compression...
What is Spinal Compression and What Causes It?
From the moment we are born, our bodies are at the mercy of gravity, a force
that continuously creates pressure and stress on all of our muscles, bones, joints
By far, the part of the body that is affected most by gravity is the spine. The
combination of gravity and muscle imbalances shove the vertebrae together,
pressing on the discs.
The inner core of your discs consists of jelly-like material that acts like a shock
absorber system, providing flexibility and cushioning when you are sitting,
standing or exercising.
During your normal daily activities, gravity causes fluid to squeeze out of your
discs into adjacent soft tissue. With less space between the discs, you lose some
height. When you sleep, some – but not all – of the fluid soaks back into the
During a typical day, you can lose as much as ¾ inch in height! And because
there’s only a partial recovery at night, the average person loses ½ inch to 2
inches in height by their senior years.
Insufficient distance between the vertebrae can result in nerve root pressure,
which in turn causes pain.
To make matters worse, very often the pressure on the discs is not distributed
evenly. Your discs were not designed to cope with such uneven pressure, and
sooner or later it will be too much for them to withstand. The discs will bulge,
herniate, causing spinal damage and likely, a life with chronic pain.
Even the slightest increase in spacing can be enough to allow a herniated disc to
pop back into place or relieve pressure from a compressed nerve.
Use This 2000 Year Old Treatment To Decompress Your Spine
and Eliminate Your Pain
What is this mysterious treatment that has been proven effective but is being
Inversion therapy is a method of treating back pain by diminishing the influence
of gravity, reducing the compression of the vertebrae and discs and allowing the
muscles and ligaments that encase the spine to relax.
This is typically performed on what’s called an inversion table. The table allows
you to lie on your back relaxed, in an inverted position. This position eliminates
some or all gravitational compression, depending upon how far back you position
Inversion therapy is the safest, quickest and most effective way to increase the
space between your vertebrae. Numerous clinical studies published in reputable
medical journals have confirmed that inversion really does increase the
separation between the discs of the spine, which brings relief from back pain.
For instance, one study considered 175 people who were unable to work due to
back pain. After eight inversion treatments, 155 of the patients were able to
return to work full time.
How Well Does Inversion Therapy Really Work?
You’re probably wondering whether or not inversion therapy really delivers long-
term, lasting relief from back pain and sciatica... so here are some success stories
from people who have used inversion therapy to get rid of their back pain:
“I am a diagnostic radiologist who abused his back through sports, hard work
and horses for years. About seven years ago, I began to experience back and left
leg pain that progressed rapidly. An MRI revealed a lot of degenerative changes
in my lumbar spine with two intervertebral discs that were herniated and for all
practical purposes ‘worn out.’ Five years ago I began to experience numbness in
some of my left toes with sciatica in the left hip and leg, which progressed to
constant pain, loss of feeling and then loss of motor function in my left toes.
A friend who is a sales rep for radiographic equipment, whom I have known for
15 years, told me he had become pain free in about two months using an
inversion table. I ordered one that day. In one week of use, twice to three times
per day, the numbness in my toes improved 100%. During the second week, I
slept my first pain free night in five years.”
- Ken Hamilton, M.D.
And here’s another one:
“In May, I herniated the L5-S1 disc. My doctor recommended drugs and pain
management, but the meds made me sick and I had a several week wait to go to
pain management. The pain was intolerable, and I was having a hard time being
pleasant at work. Home was a whole other story! I was telling a neighbor about
it, and she suggested I come to her house and try her inversion table. The first
time I tried it, the pain down my leg almost completely disappeared.
I borrowed her table and as long as I use it, I feel good. I have gotten better and
better. I take Aleve when I do have pain, cancelled pain management and am my
sweet old self at home and work. Since I couldn't keep my neighbor’s table
forever, I have purchased my own and have a couple of friends anxious to try it.
I am sooooo happy. I am 60 years old and never expected to feel this well again.”

Inversion therapy relieves back pain, and it works even better when it’s part of a
well-rounded treatment plan that addresses the specific muscle imbalances you
And If Pain Relief Wasn't Enough...
While this advisory concentrates on whether or not inversion therapy helps
alleviate back pain, we should mention other benefits people experience with a
regular program of inversion:
Maintains your height. Regularly inverting will help you avoid the “shrinkage”
others your age are showing because of the cumulative effect of gravity over a
Improves circulation. When you’re inverted, your body can circulate your
blood aided by gravity rather than having to work against it. In addition, with
inversion, gravity helps the lymphatic system clear faster, easing the aches and
pains of stiff muscles.
Relieves stress. A full-body stretch feels rejuvenating! And the inversion table
makes that relaxation easier to attain than climbing on a jungle gym or taking a
yoga class. Many people sleep better with regular inversion therapy.
Heightens mental alertness. Any upside-down activity increases the supply of
oxygen to the brain, which many authorities believe helps you maintain mental
Increases flexibility and range of motion. With inversion, your joints stay
healthy and supple, so that you can easily remain as active as you were in your
Improves posture. The stretch that comes with reversing the direction of
gravity helps you sit, stand and move with more ease and grace.
Realigns the spine after workouts. Running and other aerobic activities
inevitably compress your spine, frequently unevenly. One-sided activities like
golf or tennis often pull the spine out of alignment. During inversion, minor
misalignments often correct themselves naturally.
“After 35 years flying helicopters, constant sitting with a 6 pound helmet and
vibrations, I was constantly feeling pain in my spine. After 2 days of inversion,
10 minutes in the morning and again at night, the pain is gone. The difference is
amazing. Best purchase of my life. Thanks!”
- D. Matthews, Salisbury, NC
“I am and 54 year old nurse, and have had painful Sciatica for the last 4 years. I
have tried massage, acupuncture, traditional medicines and Chinese medicine.
It had gotten to a point where I could not even stand in the shower without
having to cry because of the pain which radiated from the left side of my
buttock all the way to my ankle. My life as far as I saw it was literally gone. My
garden is my pride and joy , but have not been able to work it for many years.
When I did garden I would get on my haunches to shovel or plant. It was
When I looked in the mirror (with no clothes on) I saw a very old woman who
was so lopsided that it made me cry. Traveling was no longer an option for me,
because I would have to hang on or hold on to a cart or walker. I thought to
myself that I will end up in a wheel chair with in a few years.
I have been communicating with the Lose the Back Pain web site and they had a
advertisement about the Teeter. What did I have to lose? So I ordered it and
when I first went on the Teeter it hurt like crazy. I received the Teeter just after
Christmas 2006, I am on there twice a day for no more than 5 minutes at a time.
After 1 week I am no longer lopsided, I no longer hurt and am able to walk,
dance, run, garden and shower with NO pain. What a blessing the Teeter is. My
husband is so happy to see that I am no longer in pain and smiling. I believe that
I have grown a few inches which makes my clothes fit better.
Being a nurse you would think that surgery would be an option. But I highly
recommend the Teeter before you even think about surgery. It has changed my
life and I KNOW with all certainty that you will never think about surgery
again. I now have a KICK in my step, and I thank you for everything."
– R. Baak, Perris, CA
Is Inversion Therapy Safe?
Of course, if all those benefits came with any significant risks, we would not
recommend hanging upside down as a method of relieving back pain.
For many years, the biggest concern was that inversion therapy would increase
the chance of stroke. However, according to Roger Teeter, one of the pioneers in
this field, “In 25 years, I have never seen a case – published or unpublished –
where inversion caused a stroke.”
Some users get concerned because their face gets red when they are inverted.
But this is actually a good thing because it indicates that blood flow to the brain,
eyes, skin and hair is increasing. Over time, you get used to how different it feels
when you are inverted. If you are uncomfortable, simply invert at a lesser angle
or for a shorter period of time until your body gets accustomed to inversion.
If you have high blood pressure, heart disease or an eye condition, or if you have
had fusion surgery, you should check with your doctor before inverting. Keep in
mind that extensive research shows that inversion therapy is as safe as most daily
What Should I Look for in an Inversion Table?
Around 400 BC, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, strung up a patient
on a ladder with ropes and pulleys to treat his back pain. Inversion therapy has
come a long, long way in comfort, construction and convenience since those days.
We have spent the last three years testing every inversion table and device on the
market in order to find the best one to recommend to people who’d like to
experience the benefits of inversion therapy at home at the same time that they
are addressing the muscle imbalances that cause their back pain.
An inversion table for reducing your back pain should be safe, sturdy, adjustable,
durable and convenient for home use. It should adjust easily to a variety of
inversion angles, including full inversion – completely upside down.
