The long baseball season is finally coming to a conclusion. Today the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals will go head-to-head to begin the World Series, an exciting match-up for a few reasons, most notably that both teams fought their way from the Wildcard round, proving their tenacity.
Taking big hits on the football field will exact a toll on anyone, even an athlete with a 6’ 5”, 241 pound frame like Ben Roethlisberger.

As the days get warmer and longer, you’ll likely spend more time outside doing the things you love like gardening or golf – activities which can take a toll on your back! Summers are for spending time with family and friends, not for suffering from back pain.

On June 6, 2014, the Wall Street Journal published an article titled “Benefits of Hanging Upside Down: Can It Really Help Back Pain, Improve Circulation and Combat Stress?” in which the author details her research into inversion to determine if the claimed benefits are worth considering.
The article quotes Roger Teeter, along with other specialists in the field, including a professor of neurosurgery at Newcastle University, a physical therapist, and a physician/yoga instructor. By compiling and considering the validity of a variety of sources, the article expounds on the evidence suggesting why the benefits of inversion should be taken seriously.
The author concludes by describing her experience with using a Teeter Hang Ups Contour L5 at the Gym Source in Newton, Mass, saying “I felt a very enjoyable stretch of my abdomen, my hips and the sides of my body. I don’t have back problems, but I did find the experience very relaxing.”
