If you find that hanging upside down with an inversion stretch table is straining on the ankles and less comfortable, you can always count on an inversion chair. Chairs will allow you to do 70% inversion instead of a full 90 degree angle. Also, since you will be inverted while in a sitting position, it will be more comfortable and will not strain your ankles, hips, and knees as inversion tables sometimes do. Many users complain about strains in these areas after using an inversion table. In this post, we are going to look at a few of the advantages of inversion chairs over inversion tables.

Inversion Therapy Chairs Vs. Inversion Therapy Tables:


When it comes to the cost, chairs are most often less expensive to purchase than the tables. If there are a wide variety of tables out in the market, same is true with the chairs so you will have plenty of options to choose from.

Support and Padding

Since many complain about ankle strain due to the ankle clamps of inversion tables holding all of their body weight, the chairs employ leg supports instead. Chairs will not strain ankles, knees and hips like some tables do, especially those models with parts which are not well cushioned or padded.

Reduced Inversion Increases Tolerance While Still Providing Benefits

If hanging upside down with the tables makes you feel sick because of the full 90 degrees inversion, with the chairs, you will only be allowed a 70% inversion so you will not totally hang upside down. That way, it will be more comfortable and easier to use. If you worry that you might not be able to enjoy all the benefits of inversion therapy because you are not fully inverted, then stop worrying. You do not need to be fully inverted to be able to enjoy the benefits of the therapy. Even a 60 degree angle is enough for you to be able to reap many of the benefits of inversion.
