What is Inversion?
Inversion is an ancient technique that dates back to around 400 B.C during the time of Hippocrates. Inversion is simply hanging upside down using specially designed equipment.
What is the Purpose of Inversion?
The purpose of Inversion is to reverse the effects of gravity and to cause a negative pressure within the disc spaces to reabsorb protruding and herniated discs. In performing this function, pain relief and correction of the herniated/protruded disc material is achieved. It will also decompress jammed facets or joints in the spine that can cause pain. It is a fun and simple yet extremely effective way to stretch tight muscles of the back and decompress the spine and discs. There are many other benefits from hanging upside down. Gravity causes compression to the body when you are sitting or standing. Gravity also causes fatigue, spinal distortion and eventually pain and suffering. The only time that gravity does not compress your body is when you are lying down. Hanging upside down will decompress and reverse the effects of gravity. It’s that simple. Nothing else will reverse the effects of gravity like Inversion.
What are the benefits from Inversion?
Continued and persistent inversion corrects disc herniations of both the neck and low back. It helps prevent and slow disc degeneration. It reduces compression fatigue, distortion and pain to the spine and back muscles. Back pain is the second leading cause of disability in the workplace. Inversion is excellent in relieving pain even after having had certain spinal surgeries.
Most patients report that their back muscles stretch and loosen up. Some find an immediate sense of well being. Many patients have reported almost instant back pain relief after only one session. Some patients may not sense immediate relief, however, they report relief after several sessions.
Other health and anti-aging benefits are: Improved circulation especially to the head and face; Relief of muscular tension in the neck and back, improved lymphatic circulation; and improved function of the glands and organs due to the hydrostatic/decongestioning effect of inversion. In addition, improved brain function of memory, coordination and balance have also been reported.
Many celebrities have embraced Inversion. Richard Gere popularized Inversion by doing abdominal crunches while hanging upside down in the movie American Gigolo. Rosie O’Donnell shared on her talk show and demonstrated how she uses Inversion as therapy for depression. Jack Canfield from the hit movie The Secret and Mark Victor Hansen of the book series Chicken Soup for the Soul also use Inversion. The Army Rangers use Inversion as part of their conditioning program.
Thousands of chiropractors, patients and ordinary people all around the world hang upside down every day. I’ve been hanging for twenty years and no longer suffer with a burning sensation or pain in my neck or low back. I would often get cricks in my neck and low back. I no longer suffer with any of that. It is an excellent preventative technique that is quick, simple and extremely effective. There are thousands of patients who would have continued to suffer with pain or may have ended up worse after a spinal surgery had it not been for Inversion.
Inversion Therapy can help you too… if you’re willing to try something different!
Can anyone use Inversion Therapy?
Inversion Therapy is safe for practically anyone from 4 -74? years of age. However, there are a few conditions that may prevent one from hanging upside down.
Obvious contraindications are if you just had abdominal or chest surgery or have a recent rib or collarbone fracture. Persons with extremely high blood pressure or glaucoma may not be suitable. Every person is different and needs to be evaluated as such. If you have a contraindication you may not want to hang. Or, do a trial by using a mild angle on your inversion machine (20-30 degrees) and see how you feel.
What Do The Critics Say About Inversion?
If you think about it, if there was a fast, safe, effective and inexpensive way to treat painful spinal conditions, don’t you think that those that stand to profit from expensive treatments like spinal surgery are going to try to deter you from considering Inversion? Or they make Inversion sound so dangerous when the very treatment that they propose is much more dangerous. Critics also state there is no scientific proof supporting the claims made by those that promote Inversion. However there are hundreds of testimonials from every day people who have benefited from Inversion. I’ve collected many over the years and have some video testimonials I will be posting on my website soon.
Certainly Inversion is not for everybody. There are some contraindications which I have already mentioned. However, it would certainly be foolish NOT to try Inversion if you have been suffering with back pain. You need to hang upside down every day for 30 seconds or more if tolerated and gradually work your way up to 2-5 minutes 1-3 times a day for at least a period of 2 to 3 weeks. Doesn’t it make sense to try this instead of continuing to take pain pills, considering surgery or succumb to learning to live with the pain?

My book, HANGING OUT FOR PAIN RELIEF- How Inversion Can Cure Your Back Pain in 3 Minutes a Day will be available soon. There is a chapter dedicated to information on Inversion, specific simple exercises for your back and neck, do’s and don’ts, home therapy recommendations and much more. That chapter alone is worth a thousand dollars. A thousand dollars? What is the cost of a spinal surgery that does not have a 100% guarantee and has possible serious risks? What is it worth to you to finally rid yourself of the pain and suffering that you have been experiencing for …how many years?
If you follow ALL my recommendations you will BEAT your back pain.
I might even have a contest and give away free copies of my book. Stay tuned and visit this site often as I’m adding new content weekly.
So…. Who are you going to believe? Someone who has used Inversion Therapy for over 24 years and has helped thousands of patients. Someone who wrote the book on Inversion. Someone who has dedicated his life to helping people cure their back pain and prevent risky, costly spinal surgeries. Someone who is on Facebook every day to help educate and inform the public about Inversion and other natural healthcare techniques.
Talk to your health care provider(s), do some research on the internet and you will find that you don’t have to live in pain or have that dreaded surgery. There are certain circumstances when a spinal surgery is warranted. It is not that often but nonetheless sometimes it is the best course of action. You may think your pain is so severe that you need spinal surgery. But let me assure you I have treated MANY patients who came into my office barely able to walk and some using walkers to help them walk and walked out feeling MUCH BETTER!
The key is to do your homework and explore all your options first. Most of the time if you work with a holistic practitioner be it a Chiropractor, Naturopath, Acupuncturist or the rare Medical Doctor who practices holistic medicine you will find that you don’t have to succumb to the typical prescription drugs, injections, surgery or have to “learn to live with the pain”.
There is a safer, better, faster way to getting rid of your pain and suffering once and for all.
Isn’t it time you discovered the wonderful benefits of Inversion?
Disclaimer: It is important that you be aware that everything has a risk. Driving a car has a risk. Taking an aspirin has a risk. The longer you take aspirin or any of those types of pills the greater the risk becomes. Educate yourself and you will minimize the risks. Inversion is an extremely safe therapy for most people!
