Inversion Therapy for Hip health?
Thanks for this great info Alex. A tangential question to the topic of hanging has to do with inverse hanging- many years back, inversion boots and inversion hanging was quite popular with many reported health benefits attributed to do with positive effects on blood flow and a host of other benefits. It seems that hardly anyone talks about inversion therapy anymore. Are there indeed health benefits to inversion?
This is a great question and one I was asked by many people after sharing the benefits of overhead hanging for the shoulders.
It seems initially intuitive that if hanging is good for the shoulders, then hanging upside could be good for hips. Both these joints can be tight and stiff in various ways.
There is a Problem with this reasoning…
