This week, Teeter held training sessions with leaders, medics, and infantry of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg. These sessions focused on ways to give their soldiers a natural way to recover from the high-impact activities that come with a career in the Army.
One in four soldiers on base are currently dealing with back injuries. It’s well-known around Fort Bragg that most lose an inch in height during their service due to the compressive nature of their job.
Inverted decompression using Teeter EZ-Up Gravity Boots or an inversion table offers a natural way to recover from Army training and duties. It can also help prevent injuries from occurring in the first place by keeping the spine and joints healthy, flexible, and shock absorbent.
The Teeter EZ-UP Gravity Boots also provide an intense core workout that can be incorporated into the Army training regimen for optimum strength and performance.
Teeter first started working with the Army nearly two decades ago, when the U.S. Army Physical Fitness School at Ft. Benning, GA conducted a six-year study to determine the benefits of inversion for soldiers. Ultimately, the study found that soldiers who inverted regularly using Teeter EZ-Up Gravity Boots or an inversion table suffered fewer joint-related injuries and healed more quickly from joint compression damage.
Knowing these results, Teeter was honored to be invited to Fort Bragg this past week to train the Paratroopers of the 2nd Battalion 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment on incorporating Teeter EZ-Up Gravity Boots and Inversion Tables into their training and recovery efforts.
Command Sergeant Major Donaldson and Lieutenant Colonel White praised the Teeter team trainers for “commitment to excellence and outstanding dedication to the overwhelming success of the unit’s inversion therapy training.”
The leadership team at Fort Bragg who invited us to take part in this initiative were excellent hosts and we were impressed by their sincere effort to help solve this problem for their soldiers. As they say in the 505th to signify preparedness for any mission: “H-Minus!” “Ready!”
