I ordered the Ironman Inversion table after suffering long-term pain with a 'slipped disc', and paying out weekly fees for traction at my local physiotherapist. THe table arrived promptly and was fairly easy to put together, although I found the instructions and diagrams a bit vague. I'm mechanically-minded, but think someone who is not would have struggled. I find the table useful and it does give me short-term relief from pain and allow me to do some mobility exercise whilst inverted, that are too painful whilst seated or lying down. Hopefully this will in turn lead to long-term relief. It has enabled me to resume light jogging again - I warm-up and pre-stretch on the table , have a short jog, and then warm down with a 5 minute full inversion, which does help alot with soreness in the bottom of my back. The added bonus is that the inversion also reduces muscle soreness in my legs I haven't had the miraculous recovery that some people do, but it definitely helps and using it 10 mins 2-3 times a day is easy to fit in with my routine.
- How accurate was the sizing? Good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The product is made from good quality, sturdy materials, which I'm sure will last for many years
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No. Some of the plastic trims were broken, one of the backrest screw holes doesn't line-up, and the slide lock screw needs to be tightend with pliers because the plastic knob fell off on first use
