It should come as no surprise that soldiers in the US Army regularly take their bodies to the limit and often well beyond. Their training is intense and joint compression injuries, such as herniated or bulged discs, sciatica and general back pain issues are common.

After six years of research, the U.S. Army Physical Fitness School at Ft. Benning, GA determined that the soldiers who inverted regularly using Teeter Hang Ups EZ-Up Gravity Boots or an inversion table suffered fewer joint-related injuries and healed more quickly from joint compression damage.
