Use of Rebounder with Mild Spine Degeneration

by Glen
(Missouri)

I enjoyed your article on natural news –


"A rebounder is the best exercise for the immune system."

I agree with your view.

I am a white male, age 68, in good health. Non smoker.

I was using a rebounder 2 months ago. I have mild degeneration of the lower spine L-3, 4 & 5.

My massage therapist told me that the use of a rebounder was not in my best interest.

Would you comment on this?

Thanks,
Glen Amundsen

Hi Glen,

I would agree with your massage therapist only if you have one of the cheaper models.

Low-quality rebounders have mats that stretch out and springs that do not absorb very much of your weight as you bounce. This causes an abrupt, jarring "bounce" that can be harmful to the back and spine.

You'll also risk injury to your muscles, nerves, knees, and joints.

And, most importantly, cheaper models will not provide all of those great rebounder benefits.

The quality of the mat and springs are actually the MOST important part of the rebounder and MUST provide a resilient bounce.

A high quality rebounder, like a Needak soft-bounce rebounder (more info on best rebounders), should help your condition. That's because the permatron mat and trade-mark springs make each bounce 85% shock-free.

That's a whole lot less shock to your spine than when you are just walking around.

Another important reason for you to use one is that it does not tear down tissue, but instead increases nutrients, oxygen, and circulation which nourishes and rebuilds cells. A rebounder will keep your back muscles and nerves strong and help the spinal fluid move around properly.

I, of course, wouldn't recommend getting carried away with your bouncing - make sure you bounce very lightly and slowly.

But that's one of the great things about using a rebounder. Just light bouncing, where your feet don't even leave the mat (i.e. health bouncing) is enough to receive all of these amazing benefits.

Another thing that would help your back are the rocker-sole shoes. Again, quality is important (a lot of cheap imposter brands have been popping up lately). Definitely check them out.

I believe Ryn sells the highest-quality rocker shoes. MBT used to be the leader, but they have let their quality slip quite a bit over the years.

My whole family has bought Ryn shoes from feetfirstfitness.com. Yes they are expensive, but they last a long time. I've had mine for over a year and a half now and they still feel like new (and I wear them almost every day).

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Wishing you the best of health,

Melissa
