What Do I Do After My Pain Goes Away?
Updated: Jan 5, 2019
When you are suffering from a bout of acute back pain, it may feel like the discomfort will never end. In the moment, we make promises to ourselves that we’ll start exercising, lose weight or whatever it takes to never have to experience the pain again. Many of our customers have found tremendous relief from back pain using a program of inversion with a Teeter Hang Ups, but ask what they should do when they no longer have back pain to help them resist future incidents?
Establish a Routine
At Teeter, we often compare the routine of inversion to brushing your teeth. You don’t just brush your teeth when you feel like they are dirty and need a good scrubbing – you brush them morning and night to prevent cavities and gum disease. You practice good dental hygiene so you don’t have to pay the price later on, and we think of inversion in much the same way.
Inversion for a few minutes a day can help keep your discs healthy and your skeleton in alignment so you decrease your potential for future injuries and discomfort. Ideally, you will invert every day to keep pain at bay… and not just when you feel like you need it. Morning inversion will help you stretch, get your blood circulating and feel energized, while evening inversion will help you decompress and relax. Take 3 minutes on your Teeter morning and night to start your day off with enthusiasm and end it with some quiet relaxation.
