Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
In the never ending search for newer ways to treat chronic back pain, spinal injuries and extreme levels of pain that simple stress can cause the human body, recent medical research as well as a revealing and in-depth report posted at health and wellness portal BeWellBuzz.com have discovered new benefits for Inversion Therapy which has convinced the United States Army to invest in Inversion methods for each new recruit.
Inversion is defined as a pose in which a person heart is higher than their head. Inversion therapy helps the human body to recover from the compressive effects of gravity and daily activities. Scientifically, it has been proven to be quite advantageous for cardiovascular, lymphatic, endocrine and nervous systems. Inversions are so effective that the US Army is planning to include it in its physical training.
After six years of research, the U.S. Army Physical Fitness School determined that the soldiers who inverted regularly with inversion equipment suffered fewer joint related injuries or back muscle pain and healed more quickly from joint compression damage. Today, the US Army Physical Fitness School has decided to incorporate Inversion into its world-wide physical training doctrine. The Army Rangers at Fort Benning, GA use gravity boots to invert, "reversing" the damage done to their bodies during their demanding training.
Additional research has shown new benefits of Inversion Therapy. Newcastle University's Regional Science Center in England conducted a clinical trial on 22 men and women who were told by medical professionals they required back surgery to fix their back pain issues. Half of the group received traditional physical therapy, including massage and personalized exercises, and the other half of the group received inversion therapy along with physical therapy. At the end of the trial period, nearly 80% of the group that underwent only physical therapy still needed surgery. However, the group that combined physical therapy with inversion therapy reported that less than 25% of these patients needed surgery to relieve their pain.
According to Dr. Robert Martin, the author of ‘The Gravity Guiding System, Turning the Aging Process Upside Down,’ the brain operates 14% more accurately when the brain is operating on an inverted, inclined plane. Inversion also helps move the stagnant blood in the body because you are standing against gravity when you are inverting. It forces the blood to move which would not do so standing in a straight position.
There are multiple new uses of Inversion Therapy which are discussed in detail on the pages of BeWellBuzz.com article posted below. Please click the link to learn more.
