The Ultimate Guide to Using an Inversion Table
for Back Pain Relief
  • Here comes the awful back pain again. You try
    icing, heating, resting, stretching, praying, and
    finally give up and take some more pain killers.
    You probably know that they only cover up the
    symptoms and will do squat to really cure the
    cause of your back pain. You dont want surgery
    Its a last resort option and you are not there
  • Is there a natural pain relieving option that can
    cure the root cause of your back pain at the same

 What Conditions Can Inversion Therapy be Helpful
  • Bulging, herniated, slipped and ruptured discs in
    lower back, Sciatica, pinched nerve in lower
    back, spinal stenosis, pulled and strained
    muscles, muscle spasms and more non back related
    conditions (such as migraines).

 How Exactly Do Inversion Tables Work?
  • Simply put, an inversion table takes the load off
    your back For you. Its the only way to take
    the weight off your spine.
  • Its actually is a gentle, passive way to target
    pain at the source and care for all
    weight-bearing joints. Hanging upside down at a
    certain angle (Ill get to that soon) is an ideal
    stretch which has these benefits

  • 1. Immediate Pain relief by Relieving Pressure
    According to research, inverting at a 60 degree
    angle increases the space between the vertebrae.
    This space increasing will STOP YOUR PAIN. If
    you suffer from a bulging or herniated disc, the
    pain you feel is caused by a pressure on the
    nerves around the discs. If you relieve the
    pressure, the pain stops. Its a simple as that.

  • Helping the body heal itself naturally This is
    achieved by the rehydrating of the discs When
    you give your discs this break from gravity, it
    allows for the moisture to be absorbed into the
    soft tissue of the discs, allowing for nutrients
    to absorb better and thus promoting the natural
    healing of a bulging, slipped, herniated,
    ruptured or any kind of troubled disc in your
    spine. But you wont achieve that in one session,
    give it a few weeks and maybe you could cancel
    your back surgery. Many people have.

  • 3. Realigning of the spine The decompression of
    the spine allows the spine misalignments to
    fall back into place.
  • 4. Relaxing tensed muscles When you invert, the
    muscles are gently stretched, circulation
    increases and the tensed muscles finally get the
    real rest they need to heal.

  • In short, inversion table brings an instant pain
    relief (no more dangerous pain killers), but also
    helps your body heal itself naturally (Goodbye

How Exactly Do I Use an Inversion Table?
  • I highly recommend knowing what you are doing
    before you do it and just like with any other
    exercise, you have to start slowly and gradually.
    Start with a very low degree, something like a 20
    or 30 degree angle for a few weeks. When you are
    done, get back up slowly when youre done.

  • I would not use an inversion table without a
    diagnosis of the root cause of your back pain and
    also its wise to consult with your doctor before
    you do inversion therapy, to be on the safe side.
  •  According to the Teeter Hang Ups Manual,
    beginners should start with only 1-2 minutes per
    session and advance only as they feel
    comfortable. You could feel soreness at the
    beginning, just like with normal stretches that
    you do. Just reduce the angle or the duration and
    move more gradually with the exercises.

 How to Choose an Inversion Table for Back Pain?
  • Inversion tables can be divided into two basic
    categories Manual (controlled by your own body
    weight and gravity) and automatic units (which
    have a remote control that allows you to invert
    at the push of the button).
  • Most tables can be set at any angle through a
    specified range, while others will only rest at
    pre-set angles, such as 20, 30 and 60 degrees.
  • You should choose a table that fits your body
    Compare the weight limits on each table to choose
    one within your weight range.

  • According to the Healthy Back Institutes
    Inversion Table Guide, most tables cost between
    200 and 600. If you are looking for quality,
    look for tables in the 300 to 350 range. The
    Healthy Back institute is the only one that
    offers a risk Free Trial for their table, but the
    most popular inversion tables by far are the
    Teeter Hang Ups .

Trying Inversion Therapy?
