Inversion Tables & Herniated Discs


Inversion Tables and Herniated DiscsAlthough inversion tables might look like a high-tech and ultra-modern invention, the truth is that the procedure of spinal decompression has already been used for thousands of years to reduce and prevent back pain.

Today, inversion devices are often used to treat bad back conditions like herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative discs, spinal arthritis, and acute back pain.

And still, a lot of people ask the same question: are these kind of instruments good or bad for my bulging disc? On this page you will find the main benefits of using inversion and some of the main concerns related to the risks. You’ll also read about some of the experiences that have been shared by our readers/followers related to decompression therapy for herniated discs.


3 Reasons Why Inversion Therapy is Good

1st Reason: You are less likely to ever need a back pain surgery after using it – this is a fact recently shown by medical studies (click here to see the detailed results of such a study).

2nd Reason: Using the force of gravity, these tables are said to help treat your slipped disc by both stretching your muscles along the spine and realigning your back bones to their natural position.

3rd Reason: Inversion improves the blood circulation not only in your back, but throughout your entire body. It also helps increase your mental alertness, reduce stress, look younger etc.


Could Decompression be Bad for Your Health?

Yes. There are circumstances – like heart diseases, hypertension (high blood pressure), or certain eye diseases – where you should consult with your doctor before using an inversion device.

Some people get anxious because their head turns red when upside down. This is a normal reaction of the body and only certifies that the blood circulation works. Use smaller inversion degrees at the beginning until your body gets used to hanging downwards. Also, make sure you read the instruction sheet that comes with the device and also review the contraindications.



Is There a Guarantee it Will Work?

The short answer is NO unfortunately. Every back condition is very unique, so inversion will not work in the same way for everyone. It is very important for people to understand that inversion tables cannot perform miracles. Here’s what some of our followers have to say, please find more of these shares in the embedded posts below and feel free to start your own conversations in the comments area.

For some people it works:

“Yes I’ve had it to treat a huge l5s1 herniation last year . It worked amazingly. Got the compression off my nerve root. Got the strength back in my foot 90% and nearly all the leg and foot numbness went away. Just a tiny spot of numbness left.” ~Melissa

“decompression treatments will help, I had a cramp that lasted 3 years non stop in both of my legs, it was gone within 1 week of treatment” ~Michelle

For others it doesn’t do anything:

Inversion tables work for some Not me” ~Guido

Use it in Combination With Other Therapies

Spinal decompression should be seen as an additional treatment option along with things like chiropractic care, physiotherapy and other therapies that have proven to work in your individual case. Furthermore, in order to really take care of your spine and achieve lasting results, there is no way around lifestyle changes which involve the right exercises, nutrition and stress reduction.

    I have a L5-S1 large central prolapse. Ive now had it for just over 2 years. I have tried physio, accupuncture, chiropractors, crutches, steroid injection. About to have the injection for the 2nd time. Is there any way to get rid of the swelling of the disk without having to have surgery. I seem to be running out of options. Any suggestions?
