Inversion Therapy

Inversion Therapy

Inversion therapy is a spine health technique that angles the body downward for a few minutes. The inversion therapy approach uses gravity and your bodyweight to help stretch and elongate the spine, alleviating the pressure of compressed discs. Inversion therapy uses an inversion or traction table, which allows the user to secure themselves and then adjust the angle at which the table tilts. The user can remain in the inverted position for as long as they’d like—typically under 15 minutes, depending on the angle. Gravity boots are ankle supports designed for inversion therapy. Because inversion therapy alleviates pressure from the spine and increases the space between vertebrae, it offers a holistic solution for pain relief.

Some of the conditions people manage with inversion therapy include:

  • Chronic low back pain
  • Non-specific back pain
  • Sciatica pain
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Muscle tension
