Inversion tables are actually a form of traction that uses your body weight in combination with gravity to decompress weight-bearing joints. While the body is rotated and suspended, gravity’s force applies traction, resulting in a customized stretch that elongates the spine, increasing the space between the vertebrae, which relieves the pressure on discs and nerve roots. Using Inversion Tables: Less pressure means less back pain. Inversion tables are designed to help lower the pressure that gravity puts on the spine. Since every nerve root leaves the spine through a space between the vertebrae, discs that are plump and contained in their ligament “wrappers” are necessary to keep the nerve roots free of pressure and your body free from pain. Inversion tables will offer a system of stretching and exercise that helps to slow or reverse the harmful compression of the body by gravity. Inversion Tables will also help strech out your muscles and may your body more flexible. FitnessZone has a trained staff to disuss all the different types of inversion tables we sell.
