What is Inversion Therapy?
Inverted therapy can be described as a means of implementing the process of inversion, which involves being in an upside-down position, hanging by your legs, ankles and feet. This position is medically proven to have therapeutic benefits and even aids in fixing your back and relieving pain.
The process thus involves spinal decompression and can be categorized as a form of spinal traction.
The therapy includes gravity boots that must be worn, which is specifically designed to support your ankles and can even be added to your workouts to make it even more challenging for you during a session.
Think of workout positions such as squats, lunges and V-sit ups. The added weight and force that will allow your spine to be stabilized, as well as work your core, will add a greater intensity that will definitely burn up a bigger sweat. Although workout accessories that add weight such as dumbbells, medicine balls and ankle weights can add weight to intensify your workout, adding gravity boots will force you to stay mindful of your control over your core, as well as protecting your lower back.Adding gravity boots to your workouts can thus aid in protecting your spine and stabilize it when needed, which is often lacked during workouts and can result in injuries.
