If you are in market for an inversion table, we suggest you read inversion table reviews such as this one. For those considering inversion therapy, it is an excellent treatment for people who suffer from back pain and sciatica. Inversion therapy offers relief by decompressing the spine by temporarily inverting the body which reverses the effects of gravity. It has been used for thousands of years and a recent study at Newcastle University revealed that 70% of the patients in the study that used inversion therapy were able to cancel their back surgeries.
Inversion therapy reduces the compression of the discs and vertebrae in the back, which in turn, allows the muscles around the spine to relax. Inversion therapy not only helps alleviate back pain but also improves circulation, realigns the spine, aids in relaxation, and increases flexibility. All these benefits can take place on a device called an inversion table.
An inversion table works by lying flat on the table and securing your feet to the table. Once secured you lay back on the table and gently begin to tilt backwards. You control the level and degree of inversion, whether you want to invert at 20 degrees or if you want to fully invert and hang straight upside down. It is a very safe way to increase space between the vertebrae, which in turn helps alleviate back pain, sciatica and leg pain.
As people are becoming more aware of the benefits of inversion therapy, more and more inversion tables enter the market each year and more and more inversion table reviews are available online.
