Ready? Let’s go.
Why Should You Decompress Your Spine at Home?
How do you know which back decompression equipment is best?
While studies on home spinal decompression machines benefits are lacking, the word “on the street” seems to get louder every year.
More and more people discover the powerful pain-busting ability of home traction devices – without medication.
If I’ve learned one thing from my personal experience and research on spinal decompression, it’s this:
Important Warning about Home Spinal Traction Devices
Wait a minute.
Before you go and look for bargains at Walmart or on Amazon, know this: not all traction devices are equally effective and safe.
A low quality inversion table will have a disastrous impact of your back pain and may make it much worse.
How to Choose the Best Spinal Decompression Home Device
In my opinion and through my research, I’ve found the top 3 options for spinal decompression at home. All of these systems are backed up by real research – and they won’t be too costly either.
Option #1 – Inversion Table
My little boy calls it “the upside down” table and that’s exactly what it is.
An Inversion Table provides spine decompression starting from 15% inversion and often bring fast/immediate back pain relief, including hip and neck pain.
No more popping pain killers and stretching every hour.
Inversion tables can be effective for herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica and pinched nerve, degenerative disc disease and arthritis joint pain.
I found a number of studies showing that many back surgeries have been cancelled after patients used an inversion table as little as eight times.
This video shows how an Inversion Table works:
The key to success with these tables is to use a quality device.
The most popular inversion table is, through my research, the Teeter Hang Ups.It costs between $180 – $300 with free shipping on Amazon.
But, if you are not sure that an inversion table is right for you, The Healthy Back Institute offers a risk-free Trial for an excellent inversion table – so if you don’t like it you can just return it and not pay a dime.
I don’t know about you, but I like to try stuff before I actually buy them.
Option #2 – The Nubax Trio (Inversion Alternative)
This spinal decompression machine is portable and much smaller, so it’s ideal for small spaces.
The Nubax Trio is only recommended for middle and lower back pain (from the shoulder blades to the SI joint) but it’s an excellent alternative to those who feel uncomfortable inverting.
It only takes 3-6 minutes of treatment a day of leaning over and relaxing.
In one study by the School of Sport Science, Exercise, and Health in Western Australia, the Nubax was shown to give 100% improvement for users – In physical function, stiffness and pain – within the first three weeks!
Option #3 – True Back Traction Device
This small hunk of solid plastic takes up no room to store it.
There’s nothing in it to break or go wrong, you’d need a hammer or a big dog to cause any damage to it. Plus, no parts will ever need replacing.
(I love the part about no parts to replace)
This pressure allows for the muscles to completely relax, and thus boots your blood circulation.
It decompresses your spine and you are passively stretching in opposite directions while being supported in the correct position.
The True Back decompresses your spine and takes away all the tension from your back. When you get off it, you have a great feeling of renewed well-being.
To supercharge your pain relief, I recommend using far infrared rays therapy, which further increases blood circulation in the problem area.
