I had lower back pain off and on for a few years, but mostly when I had to stand for more than a few minutes and was prescribed Flexeril, which is a muscle relaxer and works really well for backs. Then last year the Flexeril no longer worked and I had terrible back pain whenever I had to walk for more than 5 minutes. The mall, the grocery store, anywhere I went I was looking for a chair. My doctor sent me for an MRI at Lake Imaging and it indicated I had DDD (degenerative disc disease) in my L-1 thru L-5, lower back. He said, I surprised you didn't have this constant pain long before now.

The last time I saw my doctor was in November and he said you're probably a good candidate for fusion surgery. I can refer you to a back surgeon in Ocala. I said let me try some other methods and if that doesn't work, I'll be back.

I started with a chiropractor first, after 3 weeks and $1500 later I felt no different so I discontinued that approach. I called my doctor and asked if I could use an inversion table and he said, yes. I purchased a Teeter inversion table at Dick's Sporting Goods, they were on sale for Christmas for $250. The chiropractor had told me an inversion table would not help my back, but then again he said his machines and adjustments would fix me and they didn't.

Now my back has been feeling absolutely normal since February. At the gym where I haven't been on the treadmill since October, I'm now walking 60 minutes without pain. Playing golf without a problem. I'm at the grocery store and don't even care where the chairs are. Here's a Teeter Inversion Table like the one I have.
