Inversion therapy is quite literally turning rehab training on its head!
Spending our days slouched over computer screens, staring down into our mobile phones and even participating in sports and regular activity can take its toll on our bodies, causing postural issues, muscular misalignments, back ache and even headaches.
Over time, our spines compress due to the ongoing and unavoidable constant force of gravity, which is why we get shorter as we get older.
Anti-gravity inversion training allows you to turn your body upside down to allow it to reverse the compression of the weight bearing joints and muscles caused by gravity.
The many benefits of inversion therapy include:
• Increase spinal length and spinal health
• Decrease pressure on intervertebral discs
• Reduce back and neck pain
• Reduce stress
• Reduce muscle tension
• Encourage blood flow
• Reduce chances of injury and speed up recovery from intense exercise
Inversion therapy sessions are offered at physios, specialist gyms and often at Pilates studios. If you have never tried inversion before then this might be a good place to start, however, the apparatus for safe inversion – like inversion tables – have now been developed for home use and allow you to start safely with a small angle of inversion and work your way up to being completely upside down as your confidence improves.
All inversion tables and tools come with full instructions, which obviously should be followed to ensure you stay safe.
