[QUOTE=cholla;2698819]I do & most of the time I don’t do the full stretch with it.
If you do want to do the full stretch you should build up to that.
Mine has 4 levels . I forget the exact degrees. The first one is about 45Â°.
The final one is free hang & very similar to what gravity boots would do.
Level 3 is like 4 but you can get a little back support from the board.
The thing with the inversion table is it’s a lot easier to come out of the full back to upright than gravity boots.
Mine has good “bars” on each side for pulling back to upright.
Still if you can I would recommend a spotter at first.
Also when you first start don’t think more time is better.
Do a 5 minute hang. Go upright. Release it & walk around.
If you feel that went alright go to 10 minutes.
Stay on that for about a week .
Then to 20 minutes.
I don’t do over 20 minutes myself.
I actually think that is about the max for benefit.
After that you’re just adding time.
If you have a “bad” back you should do the above from the first level to start with.
It also wouldn’t hurt to discuss it with your doctor. I don’t have an pins,screws, or plates added to my back. If you do that is a good reason to discuss this with your doctor.[/QUOTE]
Just a back that is sore daily. I think a stretch daily or every other day would do some good, improve quality of life, and with the reduced price compared to a few years ago it should be harmless.
