Roman Chair


C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

For 30 years I have included the Roman Chair in my exercise routine. Recently I saw a 6 foot 6 inch tall man who had had benefit from 6″decompression” sessions but his insurance refused to pay for the 4 week program. Incidentally, I worked to develop the prototye for the decompression devices in the 90’s.

I was delighted to see that even this man’s long frame fit well on my Roman Chair. Considering that half your body is “distracting” the lumbar spine when you hang forward, I consider this one of the procedures of choice for people with back pain. It is far more perfect for distracting the lumbar and even the thoracic spine than gravity tables, which put much of the strain on ankles, knees and hips! The Roman Chair costs far less than one treatment at decompression clinics–and you have it for life!! Try it before you buy it and work up slowly in the length of time you hang.
