Neck Pillow Store Neck Traction Pro Neck Traction
Pro Neck Traction is the only traction device that creates an even distraction in the front and back discs while supporting the neck curve
The Pro Neck Traction cradles your head and neck on two soft foam cushions. One cushion supports the head and the other rests against the upper
back. An air inflated bellows between them provides more than 20 lbs of continuously adjustable neck traction. As the bellows expands, it lifts the
head upward supporting the curve of the neck and maintaining an even traction of the front and rear portions of the disc.
You have total control over the amount of traction applied. Squeezing an inflator bulb increases the pressure, a release knob gently reduces it. There's no strain on the jaw or temporomandibular joint.
Neck traction, in one form or another, is a major component of conservative management for neck problems and is generally successful. The major goals of
traction include: Relief of pain, decreased pressure on cervical nerve roots, improved movement of muscles, joints and ligaments as indicated in pain free range of motion and reduction in painful,
protective muscle spasm.
Benefits: Pain or stiffness when moving neck, Numbness in hand(s) or arm(s), Tingling in hand(s) or arms(s), Weakness in hand(s) or arms(s), Pain or numbness in shoulders, Pain between shoulders and Muscle spasms in neck or shoulders
The Pro Neck Traction is a device that is intended for
the person who is independent, capable of using good judgement, and who needs fast results when their symptoms get worse. It is highly portable, easily used and often very effective
in almost immediate reduction in muscle tension related discomfort.
Using appropriate breathing patterns while using the Pro Neck Traction has been highly effective in helping achieve success with this device. We suggest the
use of the melt technique: visualize actually melting as you exhale. This method has been most effective in communicating the kind of relaxation you should strive
for with use of the Pro Neck Traction.
During the initial phases of use of the Pro Neck Traction, you should restrict use of the device to only mild or moderate levels of traction. While working the muscles in a short range, they can
more readily learn the concept of melt or relaxation while eliminating risk of worsening symptoms.
The Pro Neck Traction is very beneficial for people with a variety
of neck conditions. Especially significant is the apparent success experienced using this device with those exhibiting chronic pain of spinal origin.
In a study with postural neck pain (head forward), myofascial syndrome, muscle pain/strain and greater occipital neuritis: 71% responded with excellent results and 29% responded with good results using the Pro Neck Traction.
Another study with degenerative joint disease, cervical spondylosis and facet joint syndrome : 43% responded with excellent results, 39% responded with good results, 17% had poor results using the Pro Neck Traction.
Another study with study with cervical nerve root compression, (radiculitis, radiculopathy), disc herniation (confirmed by MRI/EMG): 50% responded with excellent results, 28% responded with good results and 22% had poor results using the Pro Neck Traction.
You should not use this device with: Severe rheumatoid arthritis, infections and inflammatory disease, fractures, extruded disc fragmentations, spreading and/or aggravation of symptoms, serious pathology or disease, malignancy, and spinal cord compression.
