This inversion table is top of the line, and is registered by the FDA as a Class 1 medical device indicated to treat back pain (along with muscle tension, herniated disc, sciatica, muscle spasms, and other conditions). While the bed itself is well-made and easy to use, it’s the accessories that make it our number one pick for back pain. The brand also offers a free app with guided tutorials and sessions, including the Healthy Back and Body Series.

The table comes with eight adjustable, removable acupressure nodes for trigger-point relief, and a lumbar bridge with adjustable arch that allows for deeper lower back traction. For $20 more you can add a detachable, padded cushion to the table’s ComforTrak bed—which we strongly suggest you do, as it will make all the difference in the comfort of your table.

There are hand grips at the top of the frame (or bottom, depending on your position) that allow for further stretching and decompression, and you can use the tether system to set the table at 15, 30, or 60 degrees, or choose to customize the angle. With the table’s precision balancing system, you’re able to lock it into place while in your full inversion, and then use the controlled rotation to return to an upright position.

What our editor says:

“Trust the experts when they say you’ll feel the benefits of a good inversion table right away. I’ve used this one a number of times in a PT’s office, and I absolutely noticed an impact. I was hesitant to get upside down at first, but the locks do feel very secure. While in the chair, I feel a juicy stretching sensation, and immediate relief in my lower back specifically. Plus, the acupressure nodes are an added bonus. I’d use this daily if I had one at home.” — Carleigh Ferrante, commerce editor
