Teeter products help you achieve REAL, SUSTAINABLE results through each stage of your recovery and beyond.
The first stage of the recovery journey focuses on targeting the SOURCE of the pain.
When you have back pain you don’t have a lot of options, and most options just cover up symptoms. Teeter decompression devices not only target back pain at the root cause – naturally – they help improve the health of your entire spine.
Decompression – whether inverted or manual – helps to rejuvenate the discs, relieve pressure on nerves, realign the spine, and release muscle tension. This is the secret that no other natural, in-home solution can provide – and why Teeter is able to offer relief for so many different back pain conditions. You’ll not only FEEL better, you’ll MOVE better because you’ll have improved flexibility and less muscle tension, and LOOK better thanks to improved spinal alignment and better posture.
Teeter decompression products are registered with the FDA as a 510k medical device, designed to provide traction to the spine while stretching the para-spinal muscles. The Teeter is indicated for back pain, muscle tension and spasm, sciatica, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal degenerative joint disease, spinal curvature due to tight muscles, spinal stenosis, and facet syndrome.
The second stage of the recovery journey focuses on improving muscle and myofascial health.
When a misalignment or injury occurs in the spine, the adjacent muscles can stiffen around it to act as a splint. This often has a ripple effect, causing opposing muscles to tense up to inhibit movement, burning a large amount of energy with no actual movement to show for it – this is how we can still feel incredibly strained and tired just sitting down. Stress compounds the tension, initiating the contraction of muscles throughout the body in “preparation” for action. Yet, when we don’t feel good, we don’t move and thus the cycle perpetuates itself.
Fascia is the connective network of tissue that runs through your entire body, holding all your organs and muscles in place like a web. If one part of that web is damaged, the tension is redistributed across the rest of the structure. This can lead to dehydration, weakness and adhesions (or ‘knots’) in the fascia, which presents itself not only as pain to the injured site but often radiating pain across other areas of the body.
Chronically tight muscles and knots don’t release easily – they need help with the right tools. Muscles need to expand and contract fully for proper circulation and the flow of nutrients that is vital for flushing pain-causing waste out of the muscles. Muscle rolling, self-massage and myofascial release tools help prepare the body for movement, accelerate recovery, minimize muscular imbalances and improve overall flexibility. Most importantly, taking care of our muscles and fascia allows us to enhance the benefits of decompression for better overall results in your pain recovery.
The third stage of the recovery journey focuses on muscle stability and strength.
Whenever the body compensates for an injury with persistent muscle tension, opposing muscles become weak and deactivated. This can create a chronic cycle of pain, causing undo stress on the joints and even misalignments. Muscle imbalances can distort our posture, making us feel older than we are when we should be active and enjoying life.
Adding basic strength and stability training to your daily routine – especially core strengthening – is key to the health of your spine. Strong core muscles take the stress off the discs and joints and help prevent future injury. Building a balanced body will give you the proper support structure to hold you in good posture and keep you moving so that you can achieve real, sustainable results.
Where you want to be.
Teeter is committed to helping you through your entire recovery journey. But wouldn’t it be great if you could avoid the pain altogether? What if you could put into practice some very simple changes to your lifestyle that would help you to move and work more efficiently with less fatigue and strain on your spine, ligaments and muscles?
Good posture is so important in EVERYTHING you do. Posture refers to the body’s alignment and positioning with respect to gravity. Gravity places an ever-present force on the support structure of our body whether we are standing, sitting or lying down. Good posture distributes that force so that no one structure or part of the body is overstressed – which is a common root source of pain.
Sitting and standing in good posture – and even more importantly changing those positions regularly so that you find a balance between standing, sitting and moving around – is immensely important to your overall health. Experts cite easier breathing, better circulation and digestion, a reduction in muscle and joint pain, and even improved energy and productivity.
