Inversion tables stretch and release tension from muscles around the spine. Your body is tilted backwards on a table to an angle that you are most comfortable with to help reverse the effects of gravity. Inverting your body helps to relieve pressure on the discs and nerve roots in the spine and helps to increase the space between your vertebrae.
Some claim that inversion table therapy not only relieves back pain but also improves posture, increases height, increases flexibility, stimulates blood flow to the brain, and relieves varicose veins. Inversion therapy can offer other benefits beyond pain-relief, including reduced stress, improved blood circulation and increased range of motion.
