Benefits Of Hanging Upside Down

Benefits Of Hanging Upside Down, Or More Appropriately Inversion Benefits
Don’t just cover up symptoms; target the source of your ache!

Relaxes muscles, rehydrates discs, realigns & reduces pressure
Releases tension in shoulders, neck & back
Decompresses, strengthens & enhances shock absorption
Improves functional fitness for an active, healthy lifestyle
Inverted exercises help build a strong core, which is essential to back health

Unlike surgery, mechanical traction, and other invasive forms of treatment, using an Inversion Table is a gentle, passive way to target pain at the source and care for all weight-bearing joints. This progressive form of traction allows each joint to be decompressed by the same weight that compresses it while upright. To put it simply, inverted decompression creates an ideal stretch that improves spinal health and targets back pain by helping to 1) rehydrate discs, 2) reduce nerve pressure, 3) realign the spine and 4) relax tense muscles. Best of all, decompressing on a Inversion Table takes only a few minutes and feels great!

1) Rehydrate discs

Clinical studies show that when inverted the separation between the vertebrae increases, this allows for absorption of moisture into the soft tissue of the discs, increasing the nutrient content as well as plumping the discs for better shock absorption and flexibility.

When you are sitting, standing, exercising, or doing other weight-bearing activities, fluid is squeezed out of your discs and into adjacent soft tissue, just as moisture can be squeezed out of a sponge. As a result, your discs lose some of their height. To prove this fact, measure yourself in the morning and then again at night. You will lose half-an-inch to three-fourths-of-an-inch in height by the end of the day. (To see this change you can measure your true height or measure your waist. Height loss can be seen in the size of the waist because although you are shorter your body mass is the same and therefore the ‘column’ of your body increases in diameter).

When you are lying down the compression in the spine is reduced enough to allow the discs to slowly reabsorb moisture and nutrition over the many hours you sleep. However, the discs may not always maintain their full height capacity, creating a total accumulation of height loss of up to two-inches in a life-time.

2) Reduce nerve pressure

The height of the discs relates to the size of the passageway for the nerve roots to exit from the spinal column, so a plump hydrated disc creates maximum clearance, helping to alleviate any pressure or pinching of the nerve root.

A bundle of nerves called the spinal cord run through the spine column; these nerves control communication from the brain to the rest of the body. Nerve roots exit between the vertebrae along the length of the spine in the passageway created by the discs. Damage to the discs or de-hydration/degeneration of the discs can result in nerve root entrapment, or what is commonly called a pinched nerve. Since the nerves extend into the body there can be pain that radiates into extremities. Through the increased hydration to the discs during inversion the discs plump in height, effectively increasing separation between the vertebras and reducing the pressure and pinching on nerve roots.
3) Realign the spine

So many of our daily activities lend themselves to misalignments and possible permanent postural changes; sitting at the computer with rounded shoulders, carrying a heavy bag always on one shoulder, even wearing high heels. Also, many of our most popular sports are one-sided and rotational, like golf, squash, tennis, which puts significant stress on the spine as well as develops muscles on a single side of the body.

4) Relax tense muscles

Muscles are gently stretched as circulation is increased, helping to reduce tension.


Stress and tension can cause pain and muscle spasms in the back, neck and shoulders, as well as headaches and other problems. Tense muscles can be attributed to misalignments of the spine, over stimulation of nerves, or poor removal of toxins by the lymphatic system and a lack of oxygen rich circulation.

“Because gravity exerts such a substantial force and because lymph has so far to climb to get to the thoracic duct’s entry into the sub-clavian vein, any inversion of the limbs or even the prone body position allows for a free flow of lymph unencumbered by the effects of gravity. Elevation of the lower limbs is often prescribed for health problems characterized by a pooling of interstitial fluids.”

Also, for centuries yoga practitioners have recognized the concept of turning the body upside down to find relaxation. The head stand position is a form of “postural exchange” (reversing the direction of gravity). Not everyone wants to do headstands, so inversion on inversion equipment creates an easier alternative with the added benefit of joint decompression.

Decompression aids in joint lubrication by altering the pressure and suction forces within the joint, helping to stimulate the synovial fluid that nourishes the cartilage and enhances shock absorption.

Mobilisation and gentle loading of ligaments can help to increase the collagen content of the tissue, which results in increased ligament strength. Strong ligaments and muscles are vital for proper joint support, and help to protect against injury. Even the Army has utilised Gravity Boots to mitigate joint fatigue injuries. Just as you brush your teeth every day to maintain your dental health, you should attend to the health of your spine with a healthy routine. There is no miracle for back pain; pills to cover up pain do not address the issue, and surgery is a last resort option. Our Orbit Inversion Table is an affordable, natural, and easy to use piece of equipment.

Tight muscles or stiff joints can also cause imbalances, which can result in improper body mechanics and an increased likelihood of injury. Using an Inversion Table provides a natural stretch that gently elongates muscles and decompresses joints, enhancing muscle efficiency, and improving mobility and flexibility.

During a normal day, your joints and especially discs will lose fluid, resulting in a temporary height loss of up to 0.5″ – 0.75″! With the bones now closer together the range of movement is reduced. Inversion has been proven to increase intervertebral separation as it reduces the pressure on the discs and helps them to re-hydrate to restore shock absorption and flexibility.

Muscles adapt to bad posture. For example, with slouching shoulders the muscles in the chest shorten and those in the back lengthen. At some point is becomes to feels strange to stand properly. Inversion helps realign the spine and stretch the shortened muscles, many users report that they stand ‘taller’ and straighter after just a short inversion session. With continued use of the Orbit Inversion Table you may experience permanent improved posture.
Return To Top

Strong abdominals, internal and external obliques, and lower back muscles are vital for proper support of the torso. Crunches or sit-ups on inversion tables is a challenging way to develop and define the core muscles.

Most training activities designed to build core strength must be performed with great technical accuracy or they can injure the back. Inverted exercises can target every core muscle without adding risky, compressive loads to the spine.

Inverted squats on our inversion tables provide a unique leg workout, strengthening the hamstrings and quads while sculpting the glutes.

And Orbit Fitness’ Gravity Inverter is so easy to use…
Set it to your height, secure your ankles and relax. Weight displacement caused by simple arm movements give you total control over the speed and degree of rotation. Optional use of adjustable strap rotation control allows you to pre-set maximum angle of rotation.
Benefits start at the gentle angle of 20 degrees. Over time, work up to at least 60 degrees, where the pressure is reduced to zero and decompression happens in just minutes.
Invert regularly! It only takes a few minutes to decompress the spine, and the stretch feels great and relaxes tired muscles. Use an Inversion Table several times a day to achieve maximum results

Orbit Fitness Inversion Tables have helped thousands like you find natural relief in the convenience of their own homes, and takes only a few minutes a day!

Four Common Mistakes Made By Affiliate Marketers

You would find it very hard to source a more profitable and gratifying way to make money online than affiliate marketing – promoting someone else’s product for a commission. Having most of the hard work done for you already allows you to focus on money-generating activities like building your list, driving traffic and obtaining sales. Affiliate marketing gives you an unlimited earning potential and has, in fact, created many internet superstars.

Of course, affiliate marketing does take skill, knowledge, and a strong determination to succeed. If you think that you will become an affiliate marketer today and be a gazillionaire tomorrow, you are sorely mistaken. However, if you are serious about building a solid business in the affiliate marketing industry and do your best to avoid some common mistakes that can derail your progress, there is no reason why you cannot do just that.

So, what exactly are the activities that you want to avoid? Below I’ll touch on some of the most common blunders that newbie affiliate marketers make so you can keep clear of them.

1.) No List

Your list is probably the most important tool you will ever have as an affiliate marketer, and yet, so many people neglect to build one. Yes, you can make one-time sales by driving traffic directly to a sales page, but what you want is to be able to make numerous commissions from each and every customer. Having a list, especially a ‘buyers list’, allows you to nurture and grow a profitable relationship with people who will look to you for information on the best products available in your niche.

2.) Commission Based Focus

Yes, it is wonderful to find products to promote that have very high commissions. In fact you can find tons of products that pay out 100% commissions, but be sure that you are only promoting excellent quality items that help your subscribers instead of only looking at your potential income from each sale. Becoming someone with a reputation of recommending inferior products only to make a sale will hurt your reputation in the long run and you will find that as time goes on, you will be making less money instead of more.

3.) Being A ‘Seller’ Instead Of A ‘Helper’

Jay Baer, marketing consultant, speaker, & best-selling author said, “If you sell something, you can make a customer today. If you help someone, you can create a customer for life.” As an affiliate marketer, your job is to let the sales page do the selling and instead, be a connoisseur of expert advice and information pertaining to our niche. When you act more like an honest reviewer of products instead of a salesperson, you are more likely to gain the trust of your followers and in turn, make more money in commissions.

4.) Shiny Object Syndrome

While having several promotional products at a time is not a bad thing, it is possible to have too many irons in the fire when it comes to affiliate marketing. Be sure to have enough time and energy to focus on the things you have going on right now without getting distracted by the next big launch that is inevitably going to come along in the middle of your current campaign. Being an affiliate marketer required constant focus and self-motivation. The ability to see a marketing campaign through to its completion will be a valuable skill to you in your affiliate endeavors.

These four mistakes are common throughout the affiliate marketing industry. Make it a point to avoid these pitfalls and give yourself a more probable likelihood of being successful in your marketing endeavours.
