inversion table

Inversion tables have very mixed opinions, good and bad ones .... Some will say that inversion will offer a temporary increase in the space between the vertebrae which might allow the discs some relief and could possibly create a vacuum like environment, encouraging any herniations of the disc material to travel back towards the centre.

Unfortunately I had a negative experience in that the increase in pressure in my head whilst in the inverted position for approx 10 minutes severely upset my balance for days, to the point where I was bed ridden, and also the ligaments in my ankles suffered as they had to hold the weight of my body whilst in the straps, but I have to say that whilst I was inverted I did have a feeling of relief from my back and sciatic pain.
