Rosie O’Donnell & Inversion Therapy

by Will Meek, Ph.D.
March 8, 2007

A story hit the wires today about Rosie O’Donnell discussing her experience with depression on her TV show The View. She reported that she has battled depression and seasonal mood problems for an extended period of time, and then advocated for treatment. According to the article (I have been unable to find video of the show) she discussed taking antidepressant medication and also doing “inversion therapy” where she “hangs upside down by a swing for 15 to 30 minutes a day.”

Until I get additional information, I will assume she does this for some sort of relaxation or as a compliment to treatment for a back problem, because a search of the professional psychology literature published from 1917-2007 didn’t reveal a single study on inversion therapy, making it somewhat troubling to me that it received that level of exposure and advocacy.
