Many people are carrying excess weight while others do not, yet at least 70 percent of the population will experience some sort of back pain with a significant percentage of that group suffering from back injury. Many of these people will suffer from neck pain or injury as well.
When a person is first diagnosed with back pain, they will often receive a prescription for pain medication and be directed to a chiropractic clinic for therapy and relief–at least, if their insurance covers such treatment. Then, after a few massage treatments that may work for a while, they typically stop and revert to reliance on rubs and creams in a never-ending cycle of treatment. When you are in this cycle, you tend to accept that it is simply part of your life that you have to deal with.
Fortunately, however, there are better ways to combat the pain that you experience each day. You’ll have to think outside the box; but in this case, that is where you will find the most benefit, perhaps by using an inversion table to lose belly fat.
Why Belly Fat Is a Problem for Your Back
Belly fat receives a lot of attention because it is the toughest to lose and easiest to gain as well as the easiest to see. What a challenge! The most prevalent cause of belly fat is stress. Cortisol is the stress hormone that causes fat.
So how does an inversion table help? This strange and wonderful contraption may look like a medieval torture device, but you can actually use an inversion table to lose belly fat. It comes with cautions, like anything else, but it also offers significant benefits to those with back pain and neck pain, especially that which is caused by compression.
How Does an Inversion Table Work?
An inversion table to lose belly fat does what the name suggests: it inverts you. This means you begin by sitting up straight on it and then invert yourself. You are in complete control over how much the table inverts you, and you can control the degree of inversion using controls that are built into the machine. As the inversion table helps you to eliminate back pain and injury, you will see a shift in your belly weight and can then begin exercising to work off the belly weight!
