Gravity Boots - The Benefits

13 November 2015

With the widespread nature of back issues, inversion therapy has come along as a great solution to deal with conditions such as trapped nerves, spinal compression, sciatica and many other related injuries. These conditions can drastically affect peoples' quality of life, and cause them to miss work, or take time off from their favourite sports or activities. Inversion tables work by inverting the user at various angles to relieve pain, improve flexibility and reduce nerve pressure, but gravity boots take this a step further by suspending the user completely upside down. 

What are Gravity Boots?

Gravity Boots are versatile products that can either be used in conjunction with an inversion table, or with an inversion rack/bar that can be secured to the majority of standard door frames. They essentially act as ankle supports, allowing you to hang comfortably, securely and safely upside down so you can let gravity do its thing.

Benefits of Gravity Boots

Gravity Boots are ideal for anyone who wants to relieve back pain, ease stress, improve joint health, flexibility or just generally improve their fitness by working against gravity for a challenging workout. Aside from the general pain-relieving benefits of decompression, stretching whilst using this product is very beneficial, since moving your joints through their range of motion while your muscles are relaxed helps to improve flexibility and promote healthy joints. Other exercises such as crunches and reverse squats can be performed whilst inverted, which is a great way of strengthening your core and lower body especially. Doing exercises against gravity is particularly challenging, not to mention safer than compressing your spine with a heavy load.


Best Gravity Boots

If you want to buy the best gravity boots on the market, look no further than the Teeter Gravity Boots. Featuring unparalleled comfort, they have 1.6 cm foam liners making for an enjoyable user experience. Removable calf loops come with the boots, which place a two degree bend in the knees. This reduces the load on the knee joints and the top of the foot, for a safer experience. The Gravity Boots can be used with Teeter EZUp Inversion Rack, a double-bar system that secures to a standard wood door frame. Gravity Boots can also be used with the Inversion Bar, a single bar system, or a range of other Teeter inversion tables.

If the regular gravity boots are a bit small for you, why not go for the Teeter XL Gravity Boots? One inch larger in diameter than the regular boots, and one and a half inches taller, they are ideally suited for people with bigger feet, or those who like a little more comfortable, relaxed fit.
