Back, Knee or Joint Pain? Try Rebounding

I often get asked if rebounding is good for those that have back pain.

Well, health practitioners seem to agree, the rebounder is -great- for those with back, joint, leg, ankle, knee or flexibility problems:

" The mini-trampoline (rebounder) provides a convenient form of exercise with a major advantage being its apparent low level of trauma to the muscloskeletal system."
Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 1990: 10; 401-408
" Chiropractors all over the nation love it. Finally they have found the right exercise for patients with bad back, knee and ankle problems."
Dr Morton Walker D.P.M
" Undoubtedly the most complete and efficient training activity known for building co-ordination, stamina, agility, balance, rhythm, strength, endurance, and overall physical fitness without the usual trauma associated with other forms of vigorous exercise."
Dr. Alfhild Akselsen (Ph.D)

Rebounding can be a great part of your daily activities. Mix it up and add a variety of physical activity, including rebounding, into your life and see and feel the benefits.

To your best health!

The Detoxification Effect of Rebounding

The lymphatic system is the metabolic garbage can of the body. It rids you of toxins such as dead and cancerous cells, nitrogenous wastes, fat, infectious viruses, heavy metals, and other assorted junk cast off by the cells. The movement performed in rebounding provides the stimulus for a free-flowing system that drains away these potential poisons.

Unlike the arterial system, the lymphatic system does not have its own pump. It has no heart muscle to move the fluid around through its lymph vessels. There are just three ways to activate the flow of lymph away from the tissues it serves and back into the main pulmonary circulation. Lymphatic flow requires muscular contraction from exercise and movement, gravitational pressure, and internal massage to the valves of lymph ducts.

Rebounding supplies all three methods of removing waste products from the cells and from the body. Then arterial blood enters the capillaries in order to furnish the cells with fresh tissue fluid containing food and oxygen. The bouncing motion effectively moves and recycles the lymph and the entire blood supply through the circulatory system many times during the course of the rebounding session.

Rebounding is a lymphatic exercise. As stated earlier, it has the same effect on your body as jumping rope, but without any jarring effect to the ankles, knees, and lower back that comes from hitting the ground. Better than rope jumping, however, the lymphatic channels get put under hydraulic pressure to move fluids containing waste products of metabolism around and out of the body through the left subclavian vein.

From Dr. Morton Walker's "The Townsend Letter For Doctors" featuring Needak Rebounders.

More Rebounding Benefits

From an "Early Show" CBS report, here are some more benefits of rebounding:
  • It increases the lymphatic system's circulation (the body's waste removal system), ultimately improving the efficiency of the immune system.
  • It increases bone density because it actually strengthens the skeleton. which makes it a great exercise for preventing osteoporosis.
  • Because of the increase in lymphatic system circulation, it also works to tone and tighten the skin – like giving yourself a facial.

5 Major Benefits of Rebounding

What can rebounding do for you?

You may have heard about Kevin Trudeau. He's widely know for his reporting on new breakthroughs in the field of health maintenance and disease prevention. He has reported on television and through newsletters about the health benefits of many alternative methodologies. After decades, he continues to provide the information the American public needs.

Regarding rebounding, Mr. Trudeau says, "Simply using this device for five minutes a day can provide more cellular benefit than almost any other form of exercise." (Page 116-How to Never Get Sick Again from "Natural Cures They Don't Want You To Know About")

He further states, "A rebounder, or mini trampoline, allows you to stimulate and strengthen every cell in the body simultaneously... It is very effective for health and weight loss." (Page 162-How to Lose Weight Effortlessly and Keep It Off)

Finally, He lists 5 Major benefits of Cellular Exercise:

1) Increased oxygen to the cells.

2) Movement of lymph fluid.

3) Cell stimulation.

4) Opening of energy channels.

5) Releasing of tension and stress.

All the best rebounding for health!

Rebounder Review: Needak Rebounder

Needak Rebounder-finest rebounder made in America. The only rebounder manufactured in the USA, the Needak Rebounder has a 12 year reputation for high quality manufacturing and excellence.

The unit frame is 40 inches in diameter, is all steel with 4 inch, custom-made springs shielded by a protective cover and weighs 25 pounds. The mat is made from smooth, moisture and ultraviolet ray resistant Permatron material.

All Needak Rebounders come with a carrying case, Al Carter's (the father of rebounding) "Immune System" Video explaining how the Needak rebounders can enhance the immune system, the book "Rebounding To Better Health" and a copy of Dr. Wellman's "Total Health" article.

Benefits of Rebounding

Some are calling rebounding the "best all around exercise" and there are good reasons for this claim.

The main benefit of the rebounder is activating the your body's lymphatic system, draining the waste and toxins accumulated from every day living and essential for optimal health. Without movement, the lymphatic system gets clogged up and leaves your body open to illness and disease from the accumulation of toxins and waste.

In addition to draining the lymph system, here are some additional benefits of rebounding:
  • It circulates more oxygen to the tissues.
  • It increases the capacity for respiration.
  • It establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.
  • It causes muscles to perform work in moving fluids through the body to lighten the heart's load.
  • It tends to reduce the height to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion.
  • It lessens the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity.
  • It holds off the incidence of cardiovascular disease.
  • It increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.
  • It aids lymphatic circulation, as well as the flow in the veins of the circulatory system.
  • It encourages collateral circulation.
  • It stimulates your body's metabolism.
  • It strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently.
  • It allows the resting heart to beat less often.
  • It lowers elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
  • It promotes body growth and repair.
  • It chemically attains absolute potential of the cells.
  • It tones up the glandular system, especially the thyroid to increase its output.
  • It adds to the alkaline reserve of the body which may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.
  • It reserves bodily strength and physical efficiency.
  • It expands the body's capacity for fuel storage and endurance.
  • It improves coordination through the transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibers.
  • It affords muscular vigor from increased muscle fiber tone.
  • It offers relief from neck and back pains, headaches, and other pain caused by lack of exercise.
  • It enhances digestion and elimination processes.
  • It allows for better and easier relaxation and sleep.
  • It results in a better mental performance, with keener learning processes.
  • It curtails fatigue and menstrual discomfort for women.
  • It minimizes the number of colds, allergies, digestive disturbances, and abdominal problems.
  • It reduces the likelihood of obesity.
  • It tends to slow down aging.

Rebounding is easy to do in any room of your home or apartment and is easy to take along while traveling (folding rebounder).

Swiss Ball Abs DVD-55cmAB Ball-Pump If you're looking for an alternative to rebounding but with similar lymphatic draining benefits, try an activity ball. You can sit and bounce while working, studying, watching TV (beat the couch potato rap!) or relaxing.

Enjoy rebounding and all the best for your health!
