PUYALLUP, Wash., Jan. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The physical strain that Professional athletes put on their bodies often times results in nagging or career-ending injuries. When following your favorite sport, team or athletes, it is never surprising to hear that they are not performing to their potential or possibly sitting out altogether because of a back injury. As a result of direct requests from the trainers who train, stretch and prepare these athletes for competition, Teeter went to the drawing board to find decompressive solutions for athletes whose stature doesn't fit the standard home-use inversion equipment.
Teeter's XL line of manual and power inversion tables accommodates users up to 350 pounds and 7'4" tall. Teams currently using Teeter's XL products for the training, strengthening and rehab of their athletes include: the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts of the NFL; New Orleans Hornets, Los Angeles Lakers, Detroit Pistons, New Jersey Nets, Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz of the NBA; and MLB's Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals.
After using our XL products in the training and rehab of his athletes, Gary Briggs (ATC, LAT, PES, CES, IMT), Head Athletic Trainer of the Utah Jazz, said, "Just want to let you know how much my players, staff, and management have benefitted from using the Teeter DEX - decompression & extension and the Teeter XL Inversion Table. You can imagine the amount of spinal compression that professional basketball players are subjected to, and low back pain is a constant malady. With the use of either one or both, we have greatly reduced our low back problems. Thanks again for making these items available to us."
