  1. One of the biggest challenges that our bodies have to deal with is compression. Compression occurs naturally as gravity constantly presses down on us over the years and then some of us,like me, have engaged in activities such as squatting with heavy weights which adds to the compression. It all came to a head some twenty five years ago when I had a herniated disk in my back. Sometimes I could barely sit up when it was acting up, much less play golf. It was constant trips to the Chiropractor for relief. There was talk of surgery, but that was not an option for me. I had heard too many horror stories to go that rout. I began to look around at different therapies. I tried a lot of different things over the years, but nothing seemed to help. Then one day a friend of mine told me about inversion. At that time it was inversion boots. I put a bar up in my closet, put the boots on and swung up over the bar. After about ten minutes, I came down, dizzy and disappointed and put them away for the next six months. During the next six months I learned the value of slow progression, that is starting slow and adding on slowly over a period of time. I decided to apply this to inversion.I inverted for just 30 seconds. I felt fine. I inverted for 30 seconds every day for a week without a problem. The next week I did a minute and added a minute to each week going forward. After about a month I began to notice a difference.After about six months, the muscles in my back had stretched out and then my spine began to lengthen. I felt pops in my back as the synovial fluid released gases. After nine months my back problems were gone, never to return and that was twenty five years ago. Today we have inversion tables which I use a few times a week to keep my spine stretched out and to counteract the effects of gravity. This is not for everyone, but for those who want to try it, I suggest starting with just 30 seconds and slowly working your way up. It worked for me and it might work for you. Good Luck
