Inversion Therapy Table
Used for nearly 2000 years, inversion therapy has millions of success stories and has been shown in studies to reduce the need for back surgery by over 70%. Here’s a list of the pros and cons:
- Complete spine – inversion decompresses the entire spine and even other joints like the ankles, knees and hips though you can’t increase the amount of traction (at least not easily).
- Easy to use – most people can get into and use an inversion table without issue. However, some people do not feel comfortable going to full inversion and some older adults or people with severe weakness may find it difficult.
- Additional Exercises – there are quite a few exercises that can be performed on an inversion table that can help strength your legs and abs as well as stretches to improve flexibility.
- Relaxing – many people find that inversion therapy is very relaxing for them, putting them almost into a meditative state which delivers additional benefits.
- Set up – while not difficult, most inversion tables require two people to set up.
- Weight and Size – most inversion tables are fairly heavy (to be safe) and take up quite a bit of space. Though most can be folded up to reduce space.
- Contraindications – there are a handful of health conditions where inversion is not recommended. You can find a complete list in the FAQ’s by clicking on the link below.
