Inversion Table Exercises and Stretches

Not only can an inversion table help you to relax and relieve back pain, you can also do some exercises to stretch your muscles and stay in shape.

All of the exercises are basic crunch and sit-up style movements. Photos are provided for instruction.

 

Inversion Table Exercises

BASIC SIT-UP:

Lay back on the inversion table. Place your hands behind your head for neck support. Try to sit up as far as possible. Hold briefly and return slowly. Repeat.

SHOULDER BLADE RAISE:

Lay back on the inversion table. Straighten out both arms and point your fingertips to the sky. Keeping your arms completely vertical, raise your shoulder blades as if trying to poke the sky or ceiling with your fingertips. Hold briefly and return slowly. Repeat.

SIMPLE STRETCH:

Lay back on the inversion table. Slowly reach your arms behind your head. Try to touch your fingertips to the ground. Hold in this position as long as possible to allow your back muscles to stretch and your spine to decompress.

ASSISTED STRETCH:

Lay back on the inversion table. Slowly reach your arms behind your head. Have your partner crouch down and gently pull your arms in line with your body. This provides maximum spinal decompression and will leave you feeling great!
