Spider monkeys and bats, hanging upside down in the trees, must have known about the benefits of inversion therapy long before humans figured it out! However, after decades of dedicated research, scientists, doctors, physical therapists, and physical trainers have already proven beyond a doubt that inversion therapy has a multitude of amazing health benefits! And… there is a lot more research in this field on the horizon!
Inversion therapy involves putting your body into a position where your head is lower than your heart.
It should also be noted that inversion therapy usually involves putting your feet above your head too but there are some inversion techniques, such as the Dolphin Pose in yoga, where the head and feet are both on the ground but the heart is elevated above the head.
The inverted position reverses the harmful effects of gravity, and in doing so, is one of most effective treatments for back issues, load bearing joint issues, improving the nervous system, reducing mental stress, defying the aging process, strengthening the immune system, detoxification, improving the mind, and much more (see the extensive list and discussion below).
Modern style inversion therapy usually involves inversion tables, inversion chairs, hanging upside down aided by gravity boots, or assuming traditional yoga poses such as handstands, headstands and shoulder stands. More recently, traditional inverted yoga poses have become easier to master using a new form of yoga called “aerobic yoga” which has become very popular everywhere it is introduced. To make inverted yoga poses easier to achieve in aerobic yoga, you use a soft fabric hammock suspended from the ceiling.
Although humans may not have been inverting as long as spider monkeys and bats, archeologists have found evidence that some humans were inverting for health benefit as early as the Stone Age! You may be surprised to learn that several secret societies throughout history practiced various forms of inversion therapy to keep their bodies strong and to increase their mental capacity. However, these clandestine societies practiced their inverting rituals covertly because it gave their members a significant advantage over their competitors and their enemies! These early practitioners of inversion therapy included the impressive Yogis of ancient India and the Ninja warriors of ancient Japan.
Eliminates The Need For Back Pain Surgery
All too often, traditional medicine prescribes invasive surgery to treat back pain. This type of surgery is very painful, requires many months to fully recover, and perhaps most importantly, the back pain rarely subsides for more than two years after recovery. So, after undergoing a long and extremely painful process, you often end up right back where you started a couple of years later. On the other hand, inversion therapy can totally eliminate back pain in many cases after only a few weeks, and more importantly, it can totally eliminate the need for surgery!
And here’s the best news…
If someone prone to back pain uses inversion therapy on a regular basis, they can live virtually pain free for decades without having to undergo surgery!
There is an excellent February 2003 to September 2006 clinical research study conducted at Newcastle University in England that supports this point. In this study, twenty-two patients suffering from sciatic nerve pain due to a disc protrusion were studied. In all cases, their physician had recommended back surgery but they were all hoping to avoid it by undergoing physical therapy.
These patients were split into two groups, one receiving physical therapy alone, and the other receiving both physical therapy and inversion therapy on an inversion table.
The results of the Newcastle University showed an overwhelming advantage for the group that did the inversion therapy. Here is a summary of those results:
1. 78 percent of those patients who received physical therapy only still had to have back surgery.
2. On the other hand, only 23 percent of those patients who did the inversion therapy still had to have back surgery. This means that inversion therapy saved 77 percent of that group from having to undergo painful, and all too often ineffective, back surgery!
Although there are a few side effects of inversion therapy, most are not affected by these issues, leaving you free to buy an inversion table and live pain free today.
