Minimize Nerve Pain
The height of the disk is equal to the dimension of the opening for the nerve that leaves the vertebral spine. A hydrated disk makes the utmost clearance, assisting to minimize any force or a single pinch of the nerve.
The spinal cord, a bundle of nerves, lies right in the spine column. The spinal cord and its nerves serve as communication channels from the human brain to the entire body. A nerve begins between two vertebrae and leaves the same disk along the whole length of the spine in a space created by the disks. Destruction of these disk or even de-hydration/degeneration can lead to a squeezed neurological root or what is also called a pinched nerve.
Because the nerves continually branch out throughout the rest of the body, the pain can be felt throughout the rest of the body and its extremities.
Since an inversion table will increase hydration to these disks, the disks will plump with height as well as improve the separation between the disks and minimizing the force and pressure between the vertebral nerves.
Realigning the Spine
A number of daily activities may cause misalignment and occasional posture changes; working at the desk with a forward hunch, transporting a heavy bag on one side, or walking in high heels. Likewise, a number of our sports are rotationally one-sided such as tennis and golf which causes tension on the spine as well as strengthening muscles on only that side.
Since misalignments signify that the body weight isn’t any longer helped by means of alignment, the soft tissues themselves must fight against gravity. Misalignments are certainly not always felt but they could lead to visual changes in posture and posture that can lead to degeneration.
If you want to test this out, take an empty lightweight aluminum and out something heavy on it. The can will easily sustain its solid appearance even if something heavy is placed upon it since the sides of the can are straight. Now create a small dent on the side of the can and see how the can now holds up under the same pressure: it will crumble.
Whenever a disk is bumped out of its place, the ligaments and muscles that serve as support can hold it in misalignment by compression. Due to the fact that these ligaments along with the muscles are still contracted when lying down, 25% compression when lying and 100% when standing, it might be tough for the disk to naturally go back in its correct alignment.
Inverting to a 60 degree angle will reduce the amount of pressure in the spine to zero based on studies. As the pressure is relieved due to the ironman inversion table and some stretching is incorporated in around the spine, the disk now has a chance to move back in its proper alignment.
