Benefits of Using Dr LeRoy Perry’s Spinal Decompressor™

The Spinal Decompressor™ uses gravitational forces with active inverted movement/exercise to stretch both outer spinal muscles (extrinsic) and inner muscles (intrinsic) on the backside of the body while contracting and strengthening the opposing musculature on the front of the body and vice versa.

This stretch/strengthening phenomenon creates Spinal Core Stability™, literally strengthening the musculature of the spine in a 360 degree co-ordinate balance.

The benefits of active spinal decompression are an increase in vertebral disc space, which decreases vascular and nerve pressure. One major component of the aging process is loss of oxygen to our tissue. By increasing disc space and blood flow we are increasing oxygenation and improving our body’s metabolic processes including detoxification. Active spinal decompression aids our overall body to not only increase circulation and nerve supply but also enhance balance and coordination, which can revitalize the body.

What Causes the Spine to be Compressed, and Can We Fix It Without Surgery?

A great majority of people suffer from back pain as a result of compression and muscle imbalance resulting from some type of trauma. There are basically two types of trauma that can lead to spinal compression; macro-trauma, such as an impact injury, and micro-trauma, which is not caused by an injury but instead by gravity plus accumulative bad habits, such as poor posture.

Either type of trauma can result in compression of the spine, causing severe back pain, disc bulge, nerve root/vascular compression and eventually degenerative arthritis. Dr LeRoy Perry advocates active, daily decompression therapy to reverse some of these conditions and relieve chronic and severe back pain.

Relieving back pain and spinal compression are just a couple of the reasons why active, daily spinal decompression is important and can improve your quality of life.

In fact, Dr. Perry believes that active, daily spinal decompression may even help you avoid surgery; he however emphasizes that the choice to undergo surgery or not is one that must be discussed with your doctor.

How Does Using Dr LeRoy Perry’s Spinal Decompressor™ Improve Posture?

As gravity takes its toll, our spines literally become compressed, and we lose height.

The girth of our pelvis also widens in front, and our rear sacroiliac joints become tight and compressed.

Tight back muscles increase lordosis (lower back curvature or sway back), causing the lower thoracic spine to pull backward while the front of our body compensates by pulling forward and downward, which leads to rounding of the shoulders.

In chiropractic and medical terminology this pathomechanical (stress bearing) posture creates kyphosis (forward curvature of the thoracic spine). Kyphosis decreases vital lung capacity and encroaches the heart.

Another pathomechanical compression problem of the spine is scoliosis, which just as Kyphosis can significantly be helped by decompressing the spine with the Spinal Decompressor™, which stretches the spine and helps balance the muscles supporting the spine.

How Can Using the Spinal Decompressor™ Improve My Athletic Performance?

While inverted, the special saddle seat design of the Spinal Decompressor™ enables the user to contract their adductor (inner thigh) muscles, which activates the lower abdominal muscles, contributing to Spinal Core Stability™.

This technique has been instrumental in improving athletic performance and specifically the vertical jump of athletes.

Inverted spinal decompression with active motion creates a physiological pump mechanism, which increases circulation and stimulates the brain to reprogram the sensory/motor reflex of the opposing muscles of the spine.

This neuromuscular balancing, the result of muscles being stretched and elongated while the opposing muscles are actively contracting, creates an increase in balance, coordination and symmetrical muscular and therefore postural development.

The greatest benefits are achieved during inverted cradling, spinal torsion twists and abdominal exercises with a relaxation (unloading) moment between movements.
