Are you experiencing daily, debilitating back pain and you're looking for a natural way to find relief? Inversion therapy may be right for you. A 2013 study showed that after an eight-week inversion therapy programme, women suffering from chronic low back pain experienced relief.
The best part is that compared to other therapies, this kind is relatively affordable and only requires one purchase. With this in mind, read on to learn all about this therapy and whether it's the right option for you!
What is Inversion Therapy?
Inversion table therapy could also be called "upside-down" therapy. You are suspended upside down comfortably through a device, such a Teeter Inversion Table like Teeter FitSpine X1. As your gravity shifts, pressure on your back is eased as your spine is stretched. Inversion therapy may be right for you if you suffer from:
Muscle spasms and tension
Compressed spinal disks
Does inversion therapy work? This is most likely your next question, and it's all about knowing what the table is capable of doing and setting your expectations. Evidence is mixed on whether inversion therapy works for everyone.
However, anecdotal evidence shows that it brings short-term relief for people who are experiencing chronic back pain.
Inversion Therapy Benefits
Now that you know all about inversion therapy, here are some of the benefits you can enjoy. Besides back pain, this regular therapy can help with:
Chronic stress can create tension throughout the day, making your shoulders raise, back hunt, and neck tense. You may also experience tension headaches. Being suspended upside-down can help relax the body into the right posture and decrease your muscle tension.
Stretching and Strengthening
You can also use inversion tables as an accessory to your daily workout. Using it after your workout can help elongate and decompress your body. During your workout, you can also use it to do inverted crunches or sit-ups to work your core with the resistance of your own body weight.
One of the best parts about inversion tables is that you can easily fit them into your busy lifestyle. Used during the morning, they're a great way to bring extra oxygen to the brain and relieve morning stiffness.
