Whether you want to reduce back stress or fatigue or stimulate your
blood circulation, inversion tables makes a great household accessory.
The inversion table contributes to your body's overall health by
optimizing lumbar traction, thereby relieving pressure on your
vertebrae discs and ligaments. And when your back starts to relax, the
rest of your body follows. The table can also help with such areas as
increasing body flexibility for improved athletic performance, reducing
the effects of aging due to gravity, and relieving lower backaches due
to sitting or standing. In the process, inversion elongates the spine,
increases the space between the vertebrae, and relieves the pressure on
discs, ligaments, and nerve roots. And less pressure means less back
pain, as well as fewer headaches and neck problems. Inversion is ideal
for people with persistent spine and muscle aches, in addition to
athletes who frequently push their bodies out of whack through
repetitive muscle motions, such as runners, weightlifters, skiers,
cyclists, and golfers.
