Inversion Table Therapy is used to get relief from back pain with the use of gravity. In this, the patients have to hang themselves upside down in an inverted angle where the head is lower than the heart. This inversion position helps in reversing the harmful effects of gravity. It is an effective treatment for back problems.
Benefits Of Inversion Table Therapy:
This therapy also helps in improving the nervous system, reducing mental stress, improving the immune system of the person and challenges the aging process. The inversion table therapy has many more amazing benefits. Some of them have been discussed below.
Relieves Herniated Disc Pain
The vertebrae in the spinal column are separated by soft discs known as inter-vertebral discs. The inter-vertebral disc has two parts, fibrous and nucleus. Herniation takes place when the nucleus pushes through the fibrous portion of the disc towards the spinal cord. This causes pressure on the nerves in the spinal cord due to gravity. Inversion Table Therapy is used to relieve the herniated disc pain by allowing the patient’s spine to be free from bearing weight. In this therapy, the pressure created by the herniated discs is decompressed due to which the vertebrae move the disc back into place and relieves the patient from the pain.
Improves blood circulation
The inversion table therapy also helps in improving the flow of blood through the body. This also allows the circulation of blood and oxygen to the brain, increasing its efficiency to concentrate and mesmerize things clearly. Therefore, inversion tables are beneficial in improving a person’s mental health.
Eliminates the Need for Back Pain Surgery
Undergoing a back pain surgery can be very painful and time taking for the patients suffering from back pains. Moreover, these surgeries aren’t a guaranteed or permanent solution for back pains. Inversion Table Therapy can be a great benefit for eliminating the back pain surgery completely. If a patient suffering from back pain problem regularly practices the inversion table therapy, he/she can get rid of the back pain permanently.
Improves lymph system
Lymph system is responsible for washing away toxins from the body. Some people face a problem of swollen legs, feet, and ankles after a day of walking. This mainly happens because of the accumulation of lymph fluids in these lower parts. During the inversion Table Therapy when the patients hang upside down, these lymph fluids start flowing against the force of gravity and the toxins come out of their body.
Improves Heart Function
In the inversion table therapy, the patient has to hang against the gravity in a position where the heart is upper than the head. At this angle, the heart stays in a resting position. The circulation of blood towards the brain also tells the heart to slow down. This therapy is beneficial in providing the rest to the heart improving its functioning.
The inversion table therapy can be really beneficial for the people suffering from severe back pains, slip disc problems, and mental health problems. The use of inversion table therapy can even eliminate the need for surgeries and provide a permanent relief from the problems.
