Lisa Tamati is an elite athlete who has trekked across the Libyan desert and run the famous Marathon des Sables ultra race. She thought that her back injuries would prevent her from her adventurous lifestyle until she found inversion.

“As an extreme runner who has been competing internationally in ultra marathons around the world for the past 15 years, I put my body under extreme pressure. In my early twenties, I also broke two vertebrae and compressed two discs. Doctors advised me to either get the discs fused or expect chronic pain my life long that would worsen with time and that I should not run.

Well I am a believer in keeping active and started running a year or two after the accident and haven’t looked back since. I now have 4 discs that are totally worn and cause me a lot of pain but since I got the Teeter inversion table I haven’t looked back.

It’s helped me tremendously and I am extremely thankful for inversion for enabling me to continue in my career. I have run over 65,000 km or the equivalent of two and a half times around the circumference of the world and I am, despite the injuries, still going strong thanks in part at least to this wonderful apparatus.”
