Sep 10, 2008
Ever heard of inversion therapy? Got back pain or other problems with your back? Keep reading and find out what inversion therapy by the use of an inversion table could do to help your back problems, and also for your overall sense of wellbeing.

Inversion therapy is the word used for getting someone with back problems to hand upside down - inverted. You do that, normally, with the aid of what is known as an inversion table. An inversion table is a table that you fasten yourself to by means of special boots, known as gravity boots, and turn yourself upside down and hang that way.

What does it do to help back pain if you're inverted? What happens is that inverting yourself takes away the influence of gravity on your spine. Normally, of course, gravity is pushing down on your spine putting load on it, whether you're standing up or sitting down. But hanging from an inversion table reverses the influence of gravity.

Gravity is normally pressing down on your discs, and keeping all your muscles working keeping everything in place. Once the compression caused by the gravity is relaxed your muscles can relax as well and so you're able to release a lot of the pressure on both your spine and the discs in it, and the surrounding muscles and ligaments as well.

An inversion table is a table designed to allow you to do this to varying degrees, in comfort. It isn't necessary to hang completely upside down to get some benefits from using an inversion table, it can be sufficient to invert to a limited degree just to take the stress off your spine. Just, for example, to recline to a slightly head down position will start to introduce some benefits which you should be able to feel, and you can then take it from there.

What benefits could you receive from using an inversion table? Users report many benefits:

Relief from back pain is probably one of the most significant, however there are others. It should help improve your circulation, relieve stress on your spine and make you feel great. It should provide assistance sleeping better and give you an overall general sense of wellbeing.

Users of inversion tables rave about the benefits that they experience, often quite soon after beginning inversion therapy.

Of course if you have a specific back problem you should see your doctor first, however there are many who report huge relief from back pain by the use of inversion therapy when more traditional treatments have failed.

So if you've got back pain, or are just looking for a way to improve your overall wellbeing, you ought to investigate inversion therapy. Those with an inversion table at home will tell you it's the best thing you can do for your body.
