Inversion Table Therapy
Inversion table therapy is for those with entrapped
nerves of the spine, sciatic pain, very tight and/or rigid backs
and also those with large muscular backs that are too big for many
therapist's hands to be effective. With variations, dependent on
individual's special needs, most treatments follow the one described
Once you are secured to the Inversion Table you are
tilted down 45% or more and gently palpated to assay the condition
of your back. Various types of electric massagers are used followed
by manual gross manipulation of the back muscles.
You are then gently, rhythmically rocked with mild
traction followed by mild compression followed by mild traction and so on for seven or eight minutes.
You are then secured in a more or less head down position
and a combination of Trigger Point and Myofascial Release therapies
will address your particular need(s) in detail.
