Inversion Table Designs And How They Benefit Back Pain

Aug 7, 2008
Back pain is one of the most recognized types of chronic conditions out there. Sadly, there is little relief for those who suffer from the many different conditions that cause back pain, except for some types of surgery and alternative medicine. Alternative medicine has shown to be helpful, however, with the advent of the inversion table.

An inversion table is going to allow those with back pain to hang at a slanted angle, or even completely upside down. The idea is to relieve pressure on the vertebrae, and overall increase flexibility. An inversion table will allow for immediate pain release, since gravity is often a contributor to the pain one experiences in an average case of back pain.

The big choice in curing back pain is to decide whether or not to opt for surgery. Some types of chronic back pain may not be covered by one's insurance agency, who may state that the surgery is not necessary to one's health. If that's the case, consumers will have to front the costs of the expensive operation. An easier method is to simply opt for the inversion table, try it out, and see if it works for one's situation.

Inversion tables also help back pain since they increase the amount of blood flow within the body. This helps with muscle tension, in which a decrease in blood flow is going to cause pain and tense muscles. Poor blood flow can also result any a number of other ailments, such as muscle degeneration or even may be the cause of the chronic back pain to begin with.

The general consensus on the inversion table therapy technique is that it works in the majority of cases. Most said that inversion therapy provides immediate relief, and some even said that the effect lasted for days or longer. The effect will be determined by the actual cause of back pain and how one uses the inversion therapy table, however.

Inversion tables come in all sizes, shapes, functions, and colors. For the elderly, it is recommended to obtain a model that allows for an angled position that has more supports for the back. Other models may only hold the user by their feet in specially designed boots or even allow for a 90 degree angle in free hanging motion- which would be undesirable to the elderly in most cases.

In Conclusion

Inversion tables are fairly inexpensive to buy, and cost nothing to operate. The devices can be found in many health retailers, both online and in local locations. It is recommended to shop online first, however, since special discounts and offers may apply.
