Everyone struggles with back pain, and it tends to get worse as you age. Back pain can limit your movement and even your daily activities, if left untreated. Some people turn to this pill or that pill to help, others turn to yoga or exercise or even a high paying chiropractor for relief, but there’s an even better idea! The Body Max IT6000 Inversion Therapy Table by Body Max is designed to help you naturally and holistically get rid of back pain. An inversion table helps to elongate and decompress the spinal vertebra by inverting your body and taking the weight off of the spot that always gets the most stress, your back. There are so many inversion tables on the market, so how do you know which one is the right one for you? Research and reviews are the best places to turn to see what each table offers.
More about the Body Max IT6000 Inversion Therapy Table
Most people will tell you that this table is easy to assemble once you receive it. For most, it should take less than an hour. The table comes already with some cheap tools for assembly just in case you aren’t a handyman and don’t have certain tools sitting around your house. Most of the main screws are already finger tight in the correct holes, which make it even easier to assemble (this helps most people who aren’t adept at assembling machinery). The frame of the table is made of durable steel, which means it’s solidly constructed to last in any home or gym. The table bed is tubular steel with a nylon fabric stretched over it for comfort.The four ankle supports are made from high-density foam rollers for comfort and the lower spring-loaded pull pin adjustments help to make it easy to adjust for any ankle size. Some users have complained that this isn’t enough support and the more extreme inversion angle, so it’s recommended that you either wear an extra pair of socks or you can cut to fit more foam tubing found at most home improvement or hobby stores.Inverting is made easy with this table. After you’ve strapped yourself in safely, all you need to do is lift your arms over your head. The table, a small bit of energy and gravity does the rest gradually, and you can stop the angles at any time with the U-shaped handles and the safety lock.

I’ve researched many inversion tables, and the bulk of them have been by Body Max. Most have the weight limit of 250 pounds, so that’s nothing new. The height range of this particular model (4’7” to 6’3”) is smaller than I’ve seen on other models that this manufacturer has created. Though it does fold up for storage, many people have complained that it’s still too bulky to store in many places that they usually store their equipment (such as under his/her bed). The foam rollers for the ankle supports, according to users, have been known to fall apart thus rendering them unusable. Others have complained about the stretched nylon fabric for the back support. They say that it is not enough support as you can feel the steel tubes through your back, making for a very uncomfortable invert.All in all, I think that there are many other models to consider if you’re looking for a good, durable inversion table to help with your back pain. Yes, the price of this one renders it practically a steal, but as others have said, “you get what you pay for.” My recommendation is that, though the Body max IT6000 Inversion Therapy Table is affordable, I would keep searching around to find something else.
