Teeter Inversion Table
Why is it important to invert our body every day???
- Back pain is one of the most common of all physical complaints in the world.
- Back muscle can be caused by the compression of the spine which, in turn, also affects the muscles and can contribute to time off work and loss of income.
- Each day, millions of people search for new ways to relieve lower back pain
Using an inversion table is a gentle, passive way to target pain at the source and care for all weight-bearing joints. This progressive form of traction allows each joint to be decompressed by the same weight that compresses it while upright. Reverse loading stimulates fluid and nutrition to the soft tissue of the joints, enhancing shock absorption and lubrication. Inverted movement encourages realignment and improves flexibility. To put it simply, inverted decompression creates an ideal stretch that targets back pain by helping to;
- Rehydrate discs – Creates separation and allows moisture to be absorbed into the soft tissue of the discs. Also increases nutrient content and plumps discs for better shock absorption.
- Reduce nerve pressure – a plump, hydrated disc creates maximum clearance for the root nerves to exit the spinal column, helping to alleviate pressure or pinching of the nerve root.
- Realigns the spine – Decompresses the spine and creates an environment where misalignments can naturally fall back in place
- Relax tense muscles – Muscles are gently stretched as circulation is increased.
Looking after the Lymphatic System
Using a Teeter inversion table stimulates the flow of lymphatic fluid which flushes out the wastes and carries them to the blood stream. Unlike the cardio-vascular system, the lymphatic system has no pump. Only the alternate relaxing and contracting of the muscles, moves the lymphatic fluid, through the capillaries and the one-way valves pointing towards the major lymphatic ducts, in the upper chest. Even in healthy, relaxed muscles, the lymphatic fluid moves very slowly. Where muscles are in spasm, the fluid does not move, the carbon dioxide and lactic acid remain in the muscles and you experience pain. Inverting, or tipping the body so that gravity works with, not against one way valves, helps the relaxed, expanding and contracting muscles to push the fluid up to the chest where it is then pumped into the veins of the cardio-vascular system to be cleansed.
