There are a variety of reasons why a chiropractor would use an inversion table in Brisbane. Most commonly it will be used in what is known as Inversion Therapy. More than have the people who get Inversion Therapy on a regular basis do it to help relieve their back pain. However, this type of therapy has a lot more benefits.
The Inversion table in Inversion Therapy in Brisbane can not only reduce back pain but it can provide care for discs, help people achieve functional fitness, train the core muscle groups without putting too much strain on the spine, recover from high impact workouts, reduce pain in any overworked muscle, strengthen the ligaments, help to relieve stress, stimulates the circulation, training for balance and orientaion and even help with depression and traumatic brain injury.
Inversion and the use of the Inversion table in a local Brisbane chiropractic office or clinic actually represents what could be known as the “quiet side of fitness” and it helps your body to recover from all the compressive effects that gravity and daily activities have on your body. Doctors, physical therapist and even sports trainers recognize this type of therapy as a very safe and effective type of therapy for the spine and all the weight bearing joints in the body. For instance, the US Army has decided to write Inversion into their worldwide training manual.
Since there are many people using this type of tool and therapy for back pain it is important to know that there are a variety of causes for back pain and that includes poor posture, a weak back and stomach muscles and misalignments. Many of the causes can be blamed on the natural force we all have to battle and that's gravity.
With Inversion Therapy it will try and put gravity to work for a person by putting their body in line with the downward force of gravity itself. By using the body's own weight as a natural form of traction, the therapy will elongate the spine by increasing the space there is between each vertebrae and then in turn relieves the pressure on the discs, ligaments and the nerve roots of the spine. When there is less pressure there is less back pain.
Stress and tension in life can cause muscle spasms in the back, shoulders and the neck and this can cause headaches and other issues leading to the reduction of blood and lymph flow and this will cause waste chemicals to build up in the muscles and just by an Inversion of as little as 25 degrees for just a few minutes can help relax tense muscles. This in turn also can help with poor posture because Inversion helps the spine want to naturally go back to its proper form which is a gentle “s” curve. A regular routine of Inversion can help balance the body and more.
