Jeff has been having back problems. We don’t think its anything serious, but none the less it has slowed him waaayyyyy down. The pain starts in his hip and shoots down his leg. Right now he says the pain is worse in his calf and ankle then his hip. He can’t sit, stand, lay in one position with any comfort. Friday was the doctor appointment, gave him the drugs that allow him to function. Monday is the chiropractor. But before these appointments were scheduled he decided that the time was NOW to purchase one of these:
Its an inversion machine. AKA the “Teeter Hang-up”, the Reebok brand version. Strap yourself in, flip backwards, and hang upside down for a time. The first time I tried it, I went back too fast and just about panicked. There is an adjustment that limits the angle, I put it at 30 percent and was happy. It actually feels pretty good, really stretches out your spine. I sincerely hope it helps him. Anybody have experience with one of these? We’d be interested to hear about it.
But let me mention, I call it the Monster, because of its huge foot print. Leaving room for the base is not enough, you need room to rotate your full height, with arms extended. The porch is not its permanent home. If he decides to keep it, it will go downstairs….one very large unwanted thing upstairs is enough. (Those who know me, know what 88 key thing I am referring to.)
