Turn Back Pain On Its Head With Inversion Therapy

Inversion Table

Are you one of the 31 million Americans who have suffered from low-back pain at least once in their life?  There are many factors that can be associated with back pain but one in particular is gravity. Over the course of the day, gravity compresses weight bearing joints and the spine, which can cause low back pain and discomfort.

Inversion therapy is an age-old practice that involves hanging at an angle to allow the body to be in line with the downward force of gravity. This position can aide in reversing the negative effects gravity has on the spine.

By hanging at an inverted angle, one can elongate their spine and relieve pressure that builds up throughout the day.  Inversion therapy helps prevent and relieve pain in the neck and shoulders, chronic low back pain, herniated discs, and sciatica. It can also help with postural problems.

Benefits of using inversion tables include:

  • Improve circulation
  • Relieve stress
  • Heighten mental awareness
  • Increase flexibility/range of motion
  • Improve posture

Once familiar with the different angles of the inversion table, simple exercises can be done to relieve pressure, realign the spine and pelvis, and increase mobility and flexibility. Hold these each for 1-2 minutes, slowly building up the amount of time and degree of inversion.

  • For a full body stretch, raise your arms over your head.
  • For a gentle back stretch, raise your back to a slight arch.
  • For a side stretch, turn your body to one side, turn to the other side and repeat.
