40 Advantages of Inversion Table Therapy

Primarily, an inversion therapy is a method often used to treat back pain and spinal problems. It is by doing short stretches upside down or laying at a downward angle to decompress the spine. In order to apply this approach, an inversion therapy table is invented. It is designed to apply gravity creating traction in the pelvis and spine which release compression in the discs, joints, and nerves. An inversion table has several attachments through a person is suspended and doing exercise.

Before we proceed to the beneficial results of using an inversion therapy table, it is important that we are aware and we understand its limitations. Although proven to have very minimal risks, individuals with the following conditions are not allowed to use the inversion therapy table.

  • Glaucoma or Retinal Detachment
  • Ear-related Issues
  • Hypertension
  • Fractures
  • Pregnant women


Listed below are the 40 advantages of inversion table therapy.

  1. Reverse the need for back pain surgery. The therapy uses zero gravity nature of inversion can reduce compression and will eventually prevent disability from back pain. This means that you will be free from dangerous results that lead to surgeries. No surgeries lead to zero medical costs.
  2. Repairs Herniated Discs. This is a condition where the outer portion of the vertebral disc is torn, enabling the inner portion to extrude through the fibers. Instead of having a discectomy, this inversion therapy table has the ability to return the discs their original position.

  19. No More Fatigue.  No physical activity brings the occurrence of fatigue. Staying inactive interferes with blood circulation, blocks the flow of oxygen and stops the proper function of the bodily organs resulting to build up of toxins.
  20. Increases Bodily Energy. Proper blood circulation and breakdown of the stored fat and food increases body energy.
  21. Enables you to Gain or Regain Height.  Did you know that the force of gravity has the effect on our height? This force attacks the vertebral column of the body. The inversion body allows us to regain our height with the upside down position.
  22. Good Function of the Lungs. Our upright position deprives the upper segment of the lungs of the vital nutrients and oxygen. That is why with the help of inversion table we can balance it by giving the blood the ability to seep to the upper chambers of the lungs.
