I used to have back pains that came and went. When they came, they were really awful. Sometimes, I would cry out in pain; other times, I’d silently suffer and spend the whole day in bed. I have tried the common tricks of stretching, heating and icing. I have also succumbed to pain killers more than once, but all these provided only temporary relief. I needed something natural that would work on the main cause of my back pain, not just the superficial stuff.
The first time I heard about inversion tables, I did not really believe it could solve my problem. I mean, all it does is help me invert and hang upside down. How could that help? I was wrong, of course.
After a friend, who had the same back problems with mine, told me about his experience with the inversion table, I bought one for myself. The first time I used, I immediately felt relief. I felt more relaxed afterwards. It made me feel really better, so I decided to spend five minutes a day inverting on the table.
Basically, inversion tables are meant to address problems concerning muscle spasms, strained or pulled muscles, herniated or slipped lower back discs, pinched lower back nerves, and Sciatica. They also have positive effects on people who suffer from regular migraines.
An inversion table zeroes in on the cause of your pain. When you hang upside down at a particular angle, you stretch out and the space between your vertebrae increases. This is what stops the pain. The pressure on the nerves is eliminated and you start to feel better in the most natural way possible.
Everything is better for me now. Aside from slowly eliminating my back pains, the inversion table has also made me more energetic and productive.
