Re: Inversion Therapy and Reverse Hypers for Spondylolisthesis

What book discouraged inversion?

My understanding on inversion is that after a short period the muscles tense up and prevent the desired stretching. This is why the decompresion tables used by chiros cycle the stretching off and on.

I had low back pain several years ago. I went to a chiro that did the decompression therapy. That plus stretching and strengthening has kept it away. I also have a teeter hangups inversion table, though I haven't felt the need to use it in a while.
