Do Gravity boots help your back?
Teeter Gravity boots have a variety of amazing benefits, including the potential to dramatically improve users suffering from back pain. People that have spent years suffering with back pain on a regular basis and finally finding a way to reduce or remove this back pian; by hanging upside down!
Many back pain sufferers find that teeter gravity boots, as a form of inversion therapy, eliminates their back pain, when nothing else is helping. By wearing the boots and hanging upside down users are able to reduce the pressure on their spinal columns. This then allows the muscles in the body to relax and for the discs in the spine to be rehydrated.
This can often result in back pain being eliminated over time, stress being reduced on the back muscles and acute and chronic back pain can be reduced or eliminated completely. Most users start to notice a reduction to their back pain after just a few sessions.
How does Inversion Therapy Work?
Inversion therapy works by allowing you to target back pain at the source naturally, using your body weight and gravity to elongate and relax tense muscles while decompressing your spine and weight-bearing joints. Take a look at the video below for an animated illustration to understand what gravity does and how reversing gravity through inversion can help improve your back pain.
What are the other benefits to gravity boots?
In addition to helping improve the symptoms of back pain, there are many other benefits to gravity boots. We have listed some of the benefits of below;
Gravity boots offer the benefit of total relaxation. This is because you are taking time out from your busy day to just stop, and hang. Hanging upside down with your eyes closed can be a really great time for meditation, or just for some really great relaxation.
When you hang upside down you will feel the blood rush to your brain. This is oxygen rich blood which helps you feel more focused. You may find that your brain balance improves too and you’re able to see problems or challenges more clearly.
Teeter gravity boots also offer the benefit of exercising, without interacting with the ground. Many users will perform vertical sit-ups to improve their core strength. Over time you may be able to do push-ups, squats and crunches in ways you couldn’t do before because you are removing the stress from your back.
Because the gravity boots are reversing the pressure of gravity it means you can aid your joints and ligaments, just as much as your muscles. Teeter gravity boots will help improve your joint health while reducing or eliminating your back pain.
You may also notice greater flexibility in your core, hips and back. While feeling more relaxed by wearing teeter gravity boots and hanging upside down, you will become more flexible.
