Back Pain & Inversion Therapy
According to a 2014 study by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes, up to one-quarter of Americans experience low-back pain every year.
For some, that pain becomes chronic, a condition that costs the United States at least $100 billion per year.
Importantly, second only to Headaches, back pain is the most common neurological ailment in the USA.
In addition, back pain is the biggest cause of job related disability.
“Mechanized and Computerized”
As you can imagine, we’ve become less active for longer periods each day.
We’re often sitting hunched over our desks or commuting to and from work.
Therefore it causes our stomach, hip muscles and inter-vertebral joints/ligaments to become weak from inactivity.
Subsequently, it inevitably puts a painful strain on the back muscles trying to hold us erect.
Further, most doctors agree that most back problems are caused by weak muscles.
Gravity’s chronic downward pull
This affects spinal alignment resulting in discomfort, poor posture and sometimes injury.
You wouldn’t suspect it, but sitting also places higher loads inside the lumbar disc than standing (between 150 to 250% depending on posture).
All this can lead to compression of the vertebral disks, often causing pinched nerves leading to issues such as Sciatica.
This is where Swing Inversion Therapy comes to the rescue!
Firstly, the benefits of inversion to the muscular-skeletal system are well documented.
There is an enormous body of evidence that a compressed disc can be aided by back inversion therapy.
Secondly, giving your body the opportunity to traction and realign with Inversion therapy can assist all the systems of the body to function more effectively.
