Often muscles acting on a joint are out of balance. For example, the flexors may
be tighter and shorter than the extensors, so that the joint cannot be fully
straightened; or the muscles that rotate the joint in one direction may be
stronger than those that rotate it the other direction (i.e., one-sided sports
like golf). These unequal forces make the joint weaker and more vulnerable.
Parts of the bone surfaces bear more weight than they should. This imbalance can
Gently stretching your back muscles, through inversion, can help increase the
supply of blood and oxygen to your back muscles. With a regular inversion
program of stretching and strengthening, the muscle groups can be brought back
- Muscles need regular exercise in order to maintain posture.
- Various one-sided activities (i.e. golf) can cause muscles to be
- Inversion provides a gentle stretch to help increase the supply of blood
and oxygen to muscles.
- Inversion can help bring muscle groups back into balance and thus improve
body alignment (posture).
