There is an infomercial on TV and I was just curious if anyone has any experience. I have no clue. Phone Post

Yeah, I have one and use it whenever my lower back gives me problems. Helped a ton when I herniated a disc. Phone Post

I have used one personally and used it for therapy with athletes. I would warn about which one you would purchase, as some of the infomercial ones seem a bit poor in quality. A lot depends on how and where the equipment locks on your body. For example, if it locks around your ankles, but allows for too much pressure/traction at the ankle joint, it will effect the traction being allowed at the low back.

For disc injuries I have found that it has helped with symptoms and depending on the severity, it has helped completely resolve some issues. I have had success with SI joint and lumbar facet injuries as well. I would warn its use for those with blood pressure issues though.

 If you get one make sure it locks your ankles in tight and has good cushion for your feet. I had one and loved it but it was too hard on my feet to spend any real time in it. The most I could ever do at a time was about ten minutes.

I have never had a back injury and if I had the cash and space i'd definitely get one.

From what I understand they take pressure off of your disks. Phone Post

Yeah def. Gravity is a bitch on the spine. Laying flat on your back and inverting both help counteract this.
