Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table: FAQ
The low-down on Teeter Hang Ups
How does it work?
Inverting with a Teeter allows you to target back pain at the source naturally, using your body weight and gravity to elongate and relax tense muscles while decompressing your spine and weight-bearing joints.
Who should use it?
Practically anyone can benefit from using a Teeter on a regular basis. Most normally healthy individuals are able to invert. Be sure to check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. Learn about contraindications.
How long to invert?
3-5 minutes is all most people need to fully decompress. Generally, we recommend no longer than 20 minutes. Listen to your body.
How often to invert?
Frequency is more important than duration. We recommend inverting several times a day. Inversion is a great for waking-up, recovering after a workout, or de-stressing before bed.
What do I do upside down?
Many people simply kick back and relax. Others incorporate movement and stretching to maximize the benefits. Some even exercise to strengthen the core and legs. The DVD and Healthy Back Routines will show you how!
Do I have to go all the way?
No! You can pre-set your Angle Tether to as little as 20° up to 60° for full decompression. Invert at the angle most comfortable for you. Nearly half of all users do choose to fully invert, enjoying the added freedom for stretching and exercises.
Will I get dizzy?
The sensation of blood rushing to your head will ease as you get used to inverting. You can prevent dizziness upon rotating upright if you pause just above horizontal to allow your body to readjust.
When will I feel benefits?
Some may feel the benefits right away, some over a period of 2-3 weeks of routine use. The key is getting your body to relax and release, which may take some time until you become comfortable with inverting.

The Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table can be a great tool for stretching and exercising! For the “no workout” workout, simply recline, relax and let gravity do the work. For a more impactful workout, the Teeter can “lock-out” in full inversion no-load crunches, sit-up and squats. The Assembly & Use DVD that comes with the EP-560 Ltd. Inversion Table includes tips for stretching and exercising. In addition, the bonus DVD content Healthy Back & Core Routines by Dr. Shawn features a 20-minute class on the inversion table.
No! Benefits start at a mild angle of 20 degrees. To fully decompress the spine, work up to 60 degrees (the angle of the rear legs). The Angle Tether allows the user to easily pre-set the angle of inversion so you never go farther than you want. It’s interesting to note, however, that over half of all Teeter customers do routinely fully invert (“lock-out” at 90 degrees) because they like the way it feels and enjoy the added freedom of movement for stretching and exercise.

Teeter is the only company to continuously manufacture inversion equipment since 1981. Teeter Hang Ups is the inversion market leader, the premier brand of quality inversion products for home, clinical and commercial fitness use.
Teeter is a family run business. Roger and Jennifer Teeter grew the business for nearly three decades before turning over day-to-day operations to their daughter, Rylie Teeter Leier, who has honored their work ethic and tenacity by making Teeter Hang Ups a household name and continuing to instill the highest of quality standards on the production line.
Teeter corporate offices are located in Puyallup in Washington State, about 20 minutes east of Tacoma and 40 minutes south of Seattle. An amazing view of Mount Rainier right outside our windows reminds us how lucky we are to live in the Northwest.
Teeter was founded in 1981 by Roger Teeter and his wife Jennifer, who have invested much of their lives educating people around the world about the benefits of inversion therapy.
Roger first heard about inversion at a water ski tournament. At the time, he was suffering from severe back problems resulting from an auto accident and the toll of water skiing professionally. On worst mornings, Roger would have to crawl to the bathroom to run hot water over his back so that he could function throughout the day. He also wore a large brace with metal rods to support his back every time he skied for 5 years! Roger finally discovered that by inverting, he was able to relieve his back pain and begin the road to recovery.
Roger benefited so much from inversion therapy that he decided to start a company dedicated to manufacturing high quality inversion products. Sky’s the Limit (STL) entered the inversion market in 1981 with Hang Ups brand gravity boots and inversion tables, now widely known as Teeter Hang Ups. Teeter is nearing three and a half decades in the business, widely recognized as the leader, innovator and quality pioneer within the inversion equipment market.
Roger Teeter is a graduate engineer of the University of Wisconsin. He has over 50 years of experience in the development of fitness and sports equipment. In addition to inversion products, he has led the company in over 200 projects to develop new products for other companies including many medical and dental items. Roger was recently recognized by the American Water Ski Education Foundation for his pioneering design contributions.
