Inversion Therapy: Relieve Back Pain and
Improve Your Well-Being
Inversion therapy may sound like a trendy new fad, but the truth is that inverting the body has been used as a natural therapeutic modality for centuries. This practice involves hanging upside down or at an inverted angle to stretch, strengthen, and alleviate various health issues, including chronic back pain. Therapists worldwide recommend inversion therapy, and countless individuals have experienced significant relief and improvements in their lives by incorporating it into their routine. In this article, we will explore the benefits of inversion therapy, specifically focusing on how an inversion table can help with chronic back pain and enhance overall well-being.
Understanding Inversion Therapy
Inversion therapy involves using specialized equipment, such as an inversion table, to achieve an inverted position. The inverted position reverses the effects of gravity on the body, providing unique benefits for physical and mental health. While the idea of hanging upside down may seem unconventional, it is a safe and effective method for addressing various health concerns.
Benefits of Inversion Therapy
Alleviating Back Pain
Chronic back pain is a prevalent issue that affects millions of people worldwide. Inversion therapy offers a drug-free and non-invasive alternative for managing back pain. When inverting the body, the spinal discs decompress, reducing pressure on the nerves and providing relief. Regular inversion therapy has been shown to alleviate discomfort associated with conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, and muscle tension.
Enhancing Spinal Health
The spine plays a crucial role in maintaining overall well-being. Inversion therapy helps to increase the space between the spinal vertebrae, which promotes proper spinal alignment and reduces the risk of spinal misalignment-related conditions. By improving spinal health, inversion therapy contributes to better posture, increased mobility, and reduced risk of injuries.
Improving Circulation and
Inverting the body stimulates blood flow to the brain, improving oxygen supply and enhancing mental clarity and focus. Additionally, inversion therapy aids in lymphatic drainage, which is vital for removing toxins and waste from the body. By enhancing circulation and lymphatic function, inversion therapy supports overall detoxification and contributes to improved immune system function.
Increasing Flexibility and
Range of Motion
Regular use of an inversion table can lead to improved flexibility and increased range of motion. When inverted, the joints experience gentle traction, which helps stretch and elongate the muscles and connective tissues. This stretching effect promotes greater flexibility, making everyday movements easier and reducing the risk of injuries during physical activities.
Boosting Mood and Reducing Stress
Inversion therapy not only benefits physical health but also has a positive impact on mental well-being. Inverting the body increases the release of endorphins, the body's natural "feel-good" hormones. This boost in endorphins helps alleviate stress, reduce anxiety, and improve overall mood. Regular inversion sessions can serve as a form of relaxation and stress relief in today's fast-paced and demanding world.
How Inversion Tables Work
Inversion tables are specifically designed to facilitate safe and controlled inversion therapy. These tables feature adjustable settings that allow users to control the angle and duration of inversion. High-quality inversion tables are equipped with safety features, such as ankle locking systems and sturdy frames, ensuring a secure and comfortable experience. Before starting inversion therapy, it is essential to read and follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully to ensure proper usage.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treats medical conditions with 100% oxygen in a pressurized hyperbaric chamber. The patient lies or sits in the chamber. The oxygen then saturates the plasma in the blood, allowing oxygen to easily flow throughout the body and reach even areas that are injured or diseased, which typically receive less oxygen. The mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygen therapy include stimulating and mobilizing stem cells, down-regulating inflammatory genes, up-regulating reproductive cells and stimulating DNA. HBOT also regrows tiny blood vessels, and stimulates the growth of new healthy cells in the brain, bones, skin, organs, and tissues. People seek hyperbaric oxygen therapy to heal physical damage in their bodies and to promoting health and anti-aging.
What does HBOT feel like?Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a painless, noninvasive therapy. Our patients often tell us they don't notice the pressure change, except for a bit in their ears. Specifically, some feel a bit of pressure in their ears, like when they take off in an airplane. It feels like their ears are “popping." After a treatment, some patients say they can think more clearly and that they have more energy. If there has been pain from swelling or impinged nerves, patients often comment on the pain relief, plus increased strength and range of motion after their treatments.
Is HBOT safe?Overall, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is extremely safe. However, as with any medical therapy, there can be risks. Any risks should be reviewed with you prior to your treatment, at the time your provider goes over your health history with you, and during your intake at the clinic. All clinics are constructed with approval of the local fire marshal and building inspectors to ensure that they comply with all relevant safety codes.
How do I prepare for HBOT?We make preparing for a hyperbaric oxygen therapy easy. Before the first treatment, we take the time to answer all of your questions in detail. The patient’s healthcare provider reviews their history and condition. For example, depending on your condition, you may be asked to eat before your treatment. Preparing for HBOT is just as individualized as the therapy. In most cases, it’s as easy as changing into different clothing. Call us with any questions you have. We are more than happy to answer all of your questions, even if you are not a current patient.
