For centuries, many yoga experts have recognized and recommended the idea of inversion and turning the body upside for the purpose of finding relaxation. A form of postural exchange (reversing the power of gravity) has been achieved by the head stand position.
The problem is not everyone will want to do the headstand and most everyone cannot even attempt of doing such a thing. This is where an inversion table comes in handy. An inversion table will help recreate a similar headstand-type position along with adding the benefit of joint decompression.
Improving Health in the Joints
The benefit of decompression is improved joint lubrication by changing the pressure within the joint and helping stimulate the synovial flood which helps rebuild the cartilage within the joint that helps absorb shock. Mobilizing and small loading of the ligaments will increase collagen material of the tissue which helps increase the strength of the ligaments. Stronger muscles and ligaments are very important for correct joint support and will help decrease the chances of an injury happening.
In order to reduce joint fatigue and injuries, the army has incorporated the power of inversion. As with brushing your teeth in the morning helps keep up dental health, inverting your body on a daily routine will keep and improve the health of your spine. There is no such as thing as the popular “miracle pill” for back pain. Pain reducing pills only help cover up the actual pain and does not help address the real issue with back pain. For you, surgery is the last resort for a solution to back pain.
Inversion tables are the perfect solution that will help with back pain without draining your bank account and a natural, easy process to follow. Inversion tables are heavily backed with medical studies and recommended by most who use them.
Tight joints and stiff muscles will cause an imbalance that result in poor body mechanics and increases the chances of injury. Using an inversion therapy table will provide a better natural stretch which helps elongate a muscle and decompresses a tight joint. Using an inversion table for sciatica will also enhance the efficiency of a certain muscles and improve flexibility within or around a joint.
During the day a joint, especially a disk, will experience a loss of fluid which may result in temporary loss of height of around half an inch to three-quarters! With this loss of fluid, the bones around the disk or joint are now closer to each other and the full range of movement is now tampered with. Using an inversion table has proven to increase the space in between joints and intervertebral disks. This will reduce pressure that is building on the disk and will help restore proper hydration levels in the disk. Now the disk can naturally absorb shock as well as increase its flexibility.
Your muscles will naturally adapt to poor posture. When you slouch, the muscles in the chest will shorten and the muscles in the back will lengthen. Over time it may become strange to stand properly. Inversion tables will help stretch those shortened muscles. Many people who have just used an inversion table will experience being the “taller” effect. Using an inversion table on a daily basis over an extended period of time will improve poor posture.
