Looking for ways to manage your back pain?
There is nothing more challenging than modern day life in terms of the pressure it puts on the human body. It is not so much what you are doing but what you are not doing.
So many of us constantly ask doctors for the answers, which they often do not have. What if we can help ourselves with back pain.
What can I do for 15 minutes every day to help with back pain?

Inversion devices in various forms have been used in yoga studios for decades, so the exact origins of the practice are unclear and are rarely agreed upon. While there were surely yogis hanging upside down from ropes attached to trees thousands of years ago, most people credit the late yoga master BKS Iyengar with popularising and systematising the practice.
In his studio in Pune, India, Iyengar introduced his yoga students (who came from all over the world) to many different yoga props that are now commonplace:
blocks, straps, ropes, yoga chairs, and improvised yoga inversion slings.
Iyengar himself appears in some of the earliest photos documenting inversion sling yoga practice. He used a thick rope and a stack of rolled up mats to practice passive backbends in his studio.
YOGABODY founder, Lucas Rockwood, first discovered inverted slings in 2004 while living in Thailand. Frustrated by the design and durability of early models, Lucas spent three years in development and eventually created a studio-quality device now known as the Yoga Trapeze. Today, it is used in homes, studios, and fitness centres in 81 countries around the world.
While modern yoga props have improved in quality and comfort for inversion sling yoga, the fundamental concept is the same. These simple devices allow you to practice new and different poses in ways that can transform your practice, and in particular, your spinal health, core and upper body strength.
Benefits of the Yoga Trapeze®

- · Reduce herniated disk pain for injuries that are slight to mild (stage 1)
- · Add 1-2 mm of space between L4/L5 and L5/S1 vertebrae
