Most Success Stories that we post are excerpts from customer letters or emails. While more difficult to convey, it’s not uncommon for us to field phone calls from happy people who just have to tell someone how much the Teeter has done for them. Just recently, one of our Customer Service agents had this to share (these type of phone calls make their day and ours too!):
Ted gave inversion a try to relieve sciatic and knee pain. He had a hero rescue him from pain that had been chronic and restrictive. Here is his Teeter story of healing:
I purchased a Teeter Hang Ups from an exercise equipment store after I was injured in a serious auto accident. I began using the inversion to supplement the almost year of therapy to help improve my posture and relieve pain. I had to drive 100 miles a day for my job, and could not have done it without this product. With an exercise program and using inversion to this very day, almost 16 years later I am pain free and started training at 42 to be a bodybuilder – after training to run a half marathon. I can’t thank you enough for offering this exceptional product. I still have the original unit that I purchased and it works as well as the day I purchased it.

Bob has suffered from back pain, neck pain and restricted flexibility for over 30 years. After only 30 days of using his Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table he was so excited about his results he wrote us and said,
“My first 30 days with the Teeter Inversion Table has had a profound affect on my life. I’m 60 years old and have had compressed lumbar discs since an accident 40 years ago. My first cervical vertebrae is actually up inside my skull, instead of the skull resting on top of it, so I have had tenseness in the upper body muscles due to the nerves being compressed, especially when under any stress, for many years.
“In the first 30 days of doing inversion I have seen:
- A 1/2 inch gain in height;
- A 3/4 inch reduction in waist size;
- A dramatic reduction in muscle tension in the upper body;
- A dramatic reduction in lower back pain;
- A dramatic increase in golf ball distance – 25 yards on drives
“I am much more physically relaxed, able to do full inversions, flexes and crunches without any back pain. My chiropractor noticed I adjusted much easier than usual and was impressed with the inversion results of just 2 weeks. I sent my sister a recent email and picture and she called to ask what brand and model of inversion table I got. She said I looked so good she and her husband want to try an inversion table as well. 5 minutes of inversion 3 times a day has been the best investment I have made in a long time. Thank you so much for such a great quality product!”
When I read Bob’s story, I found myself rubbing my arms to tame my goosebumps! Several of my co-workers had the same experience when I shared Bob’s story with them. When I reached out to Bob about sending me a picture of himself to include in our blog, he responded with,
“[Golf is]… something that I really enjoy much more since getting the Teeter. Using the Teeter has allowed me to get much greater range of motion in my upper body, so I am hitting my drives 25 yards further on average and with greater accuracy!
“With my cervical condition of the C1 vertabrae actually being up inside my skull, I have had very limited motion in rotating my head left or right for over 30 years. I could not rotate my head 90 degrees to either side, but I can now get a full 90 degree rotation! Before the Teeter, if I wound my upper body up as much on the back swing as shown in the picture, I would lose site of the ball due to my head not being able rotate that far.
“I turn 60 next Tuesday and I am playing more enjoyable golf and feeling better physically than I have in more than a decade. Couldn’t be happier.
“P.S. Played in a tournament last week and told my golf partner, Ron J., all about the benefits of the Teeter. He said he’s going to order and try one.”

What do you do when you have suffered from chronic back and shoulder pain for years, you can no longer enjoy the things you love and prescriptions and injection treatments are not effective? You do what Dan did and you get a Teeter!
“At 59, I had been suffering from chronic back and shoulder for well over three years. It had gotten to the point that I was ready to give up golf and I was limited on what other outdoor activities I could do. I was getting depressed and frustrated about my physical well-being and my inability to enjoy life. It was not only taking a toll on me, but also my wife, as I just quit doing things. I was taking 10-12 NSAIDS on a daily basis just to get by. I was also getting trigger point pain injections about every three months to try and alleviate the pain.
“In May 2013, I saw your ad on TV and thought’ “What do I have to lose at this point?” I received your product and had it together in a very short period of time. I found your instructions and DVD were very well done and extremely helpful. I immediately started on a twice a day program inverting myself at 60 degrees. In five short months, my life has turned around 180 degrees and I feel like a kid again. I have shaven 6 strokes off my golf handicap and my wife and I are active for the first time in 3 – 4 years. We are golfing, fishing and hiking again and the best part is, that I am able to play around and wrestle with my grandkids. Your product has completely changed my life and is nothing short of a miracle to me. Through my success, three of my friends have purchased Teeter Hangs Ups.
“I could go on and on about my Teeter Hang Ups, but I do not want to bore you. Thanks again for your wonderful product and giving my life back. I am a ‘new man!!!!!!’”
After Dan sent us his story, we wanted to share it so we asked him to send us a photo to include in this post. Dan quickly responded with his image and the below:
“This is the first time I have ever written in to a company, but given my personal success, I wanted you guys to know. I can only hope that someone else will read about it and also enjoy getting their health back as much as I have.
“I have attached a picture of my wife Monika and I golfing on Maui. Before the Teeter Hang Ups, this would not have been possible.
“Thank you very much for an excellent product that performs as advertised.”
