Inversion therapy involves being upside down or at an inverted angle while hanging by the legs, ankles or feet with the intention of therapeutic benefits. It is a form of spinal traction. Gravity boots are ankle supports designed for inversion therapy.
How does it works?
Clients are literally turned upside-down for seconds to minutes at a time. This method takes the pressure off the spine, bones and even nerve roots.
As gravity work its magic on the body, the spine and the spinal column relaxes (decompresses) and spacing between each vertebrae stretches, thereby reducing pressure on the discs. Standing on our feet or sitting often causes the discs to compress on one another causing pain. Inversion therapy alleviates the pain. Relief is found from the stretch to which the back gets immediate release.
Why is important? (benefits)
- Increases the Nutrient and oxygen to your brain
