Teeter Inversion Tables and Decompression Devices Cleared by the FDA

Indicated for an Expanded List of Back Pain Related Conditions

"Having FDA-clearance opens the door to include an expanded range of potential users that can greatly benefit from inversion therapy" says Rylie Teeter Leier, CEO of Teeter.

    PUYALLUP, WA, April 11, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Teeter Inversion Tables and decompression devices have been listed with the FDA as a Class I Medical Devices for decades. A recent 2016 review resulted in FDA-clearance for an expanded list of indications for use to include: back pain, sciatica, muscle tension, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spinal curvature due to tight muscles, muscle spasm, facet syndrome. As a prominent innovator in the inversion product market for over 35 years, Teeter stands today as the only FDA-cleared inversion table on the market.

"We are thrilled to announce this new FDA development," says Rylie Teeter Leier, CEO of Teeter. "We have always known how instrumental our decompression devices are in helping back pain sufferers. Having FDA-clearance opens the door to include an expanded range of potential users that can greatly benefit from inversion therapy."

For many chronic back-pain sufferers, undergoing surgery or taking medication may appear to be the only options, however these methods can be expensive or rely on lengthy down-time for recovery. Gravity-facilitated decompression therapy on a Teeter works to ease back pain by rejuvenating discs, reducing nerve pressure, relaxing muscles, and realigning the spine in just minutes a day through consistent use. The results of a preliminary study conducted by researchers at Newcastle Hospital indicates that regular use of a Teeter Inversion Table may significantly reduce the need for sciatic back surgery. FDA-cleared Teeter products include all manual inversion tables, including the highly popular, as-seen-on-TV ComforTrak series, the DEX II, EZ-Up Gravity Boots, and the P2 Portable Back Stretcher.
