Having back pain or other problems with your back? Inversion therapy is one of the most popular methods to relieve pain and cure any back problems. In order to do that, you will need to hand upside down inverted with the help of a tool known as an inversion table. It is a table that looks like a normal table that has a pivot in the middle. In order to use it, you must first lay on the table and tie your feet on the bottom of the table then you can use the pivot mechanism to allow you to flip safely.
So how it works?
By inverting yourself you actually take away the influence of gravity on your spine. Normally the gravity force will push down on your spine and make all your muscles keep working when you are sitting or standing, but hanging with an inversion table will reverse the force. The results are your muscle can relax and release a lot of the pressure on your spine and the surrounding muscles as well.
Who needs this tool?
Everyone can use this tool to experience the reverse situation and especially for those who have back pain, weak abdominal, spinal misalignment, and bad posture.
An inversion table also allows you to reverse yourself in some different degrees, in comfort of course. You don’t need to hang perfectly upside down to get the benefits because it can also be obtained just by inverted to a limited degree.
