But as inversion therapy evolved, medical science has invented different devices which better execute the objective of rehabilitation back pain and injuries.
The first device to be conceptualized was the inversion table. The basic concept of using it consists of standing on the table’s footrest with the rest of your body lying on the table body itself.
Your ankles should be strapped at the footrest so that your body weight shifts towards the table gradually until you are suspended in a vertical angle position that you are comfortable with.
In effect, your body weight will be dependent on your ankles, knees and feet because these will be the parts that will be moving during inversion.
But some inversion table users complained of pain in their ankles, feet neck and hips because of the strain placed on these body parts. Those also with existing arthritis and joint pain also complained of added inconvenience.
This common complaint led to the development of the inversion chair. The chair just simply provides traction to the spine and does not bother the joints. The chair is better suited for less athletic and senior users.
