Inversion tables are becoming more widely recognized by the medical profession for the health and rehabilitation benefits that can result from inversion therapy. Many health care professionals agree that activity and exercise is the best solution for avoiding problems such as back pain, joint stiffness and immobility. The everyday activities of walking, running, and standing all have a negative effect on your spine. Inversion tables allow you to hang upside down to alleviate the effects that gravity has on your body and helps to alleviate the pressure on the discs and nerves in your spine. Inversion table therapy can help with your posture, flexibility, circulation, and proper alignment of the spine.
