Inversion therapy traction
Inversion Therapy was used as early as 400 BC by Hippocrates, who suspended the patient on a ladder in an appropriate manner in order to allow gravity to exercise therapeutic traction. Modern Inversion Therapy procedures have demonstrated multiple therapeutic possibilities that continue to expand. It involves being upside down or at an inverted angle while hanging by the legs, ankles, or feet with the intention of therapeutic benefits. It is a form of spinal decompression and traction.
