Air Neck Traction Decompresses The Cervical Spine, Helping To Relieve Muscle, Joint, Disc & Nerve Pressure

The Air Neck Traction device is offers easy and afffordable relief from compression of the cervical spine. FDA approved and effective for relief of pain from pinched nerves, disc bulges, stiff muscles, and posture modification.

Traction stretches the cervical spine to counter the effects of gravity on the structures of the neck. Your head weight ranges anywhere from 8 – 12 pounds, which the neck and shoulder muscles have to support. With poor posture, the head typically leans forward and increases the functional weight from gravity; just like holding something heavy out far from your body is more difficult as opposed to holding it close to your body. Over time, this undue stress can lead to neck injury, problems with the discs as they bulge from the pressure of weight, and altered vector forces as the muscles shorten and become tight. This can cause early onset of degenerative changes, which can become a chronic and even disabling problem. This can cause everyday pain and restriction in motion.

A unique cervical traction device to help address tight neck muscles and bulging discs which can cause headaches, neck pain and numbness or tingling down the arm from pressure on sensitive nerves and constriction of blood vessels which interferes with circulation. There is independent bilateral control to accommodate complex applications as well as postural and segmental configurations.

It gives you new ways to apply traction to painful neck muscles, disc and joint problems, and get relief that you control and administer yourself. It is easy to use, comfortable and portable so you can use it at home, work and while traveling! Enjoy safe and effective pain relief from tight neck muscles, pinched nerves, tension and neck related headaches, as well as degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis, cervical spondylosis and irritated neck joints.

Simply place the Air Neck Traction device comfortably around your neck and inflate with air using the high efficiency hand pump to gradually raise the level to a comfortable stretch. The air neck traction elongates to support the weight of the head allowing tight neck muscles to relax. Further inflation will help take pressure off the discs, joints, nerves and blood vessels allowing increased blood flow with decreased irritation due to decompression.

In 2014, a study was published in the Journal Of Orthopedic Sports & Physical Therapy, Feb;44(2):45-57, that found the addition of traction to rehabilitation of those suffering from a pinched nerve in the neck improved results, with reduced levels of disability and pain intensity. The ability to perform exercises against resistance, particularly when individual control of the side and force of resistance, adds an additional aspect to treatment of these patients and those with other cervical spine conditions.

When partially inflated, it functions like a neck support allowing the neck muscles to relax. The air pressure is adjustable and you can set it to your own level of comfort when seeking pain relief. The long term goal is to provide enough pressure release or decompression so that normal functioning of the neck can be restored. Along with neck exercises, better ergonomics, and a supportive pillow for sleeping, restoring function may be within your reach.

The velcro adjustment straps which open in the front allow a wide range of adjustment to fit most size necks and can be adjusted to you or your doctors preference. This not only allows size adjustment, this gives you multiple ways to control the level of comfort and traction, concentrating the decompressive effects to the best level. This makes it one of the most versatile, powerful neck traction units.

This permits total user control allowing fine adjustments to be made for control of head positioning, wedging of vertebral level, range of motion problems, scoliosis correction, and myofascial stretching. Power and versatility make this a valuable tool in combating neck problems.

Air Neck Traction may well impact nerve, muscular, and skeletal elements within the neck responsible for pain generation. From the graphic representation, degenerative joint disease is responsible for joint irritability since the rear facing facet joints rub with each other instead of gliding smoothly. This is what is called facet syndrome and results in neck pain, headaches as well as radiating pain in the shoulder area. Furthermore, notice the herniated or bulging disc that has migrated from the disc containment to put tension on the nerve leading to neck and shoulder pain, possibly down to the arms and even as far as the hands. This is also referred to as radiculitis or a pinched nerve. Additionally, muscular spasms and bad posture may cause further pain and keep a never-ending cycle of neck pain and associated headaches.

Using cervical spine decompression brings about separating of the joints, therefore alleviating neck pain by reduction of pressure on delicate nerves. The disc herniation has diminished from the negative pressure as a result of the traction influence. The poor posture is improved since the neck traction reduces the forward placement permitting a more centered placement of the neck and head above the shoulders. Furthermore, spastic as well as shorter muscle tissues are extended and in a position to loosen up since the traction takes away the stress from the muscles through holding up the load of the head.

Air Neck Traction Instructions

Put collar surrounding neck together with the tube and inflation bulb in the front. Fine-tune the inflatable sections for proper shape and placement, then secure the velcro connectors in the front. Make use of a mirror to help until you get used to the fitting process.

Sit straight up and relax your back in the chair, keeping your head directly forward gazing out at eye-level. Make sure the valve on the hand pump bulb is closed (automatic with newer version), then pump the inflation bulb until you sense an easy stretch of your neck. Permit the back of the head to relax pleasantly back within the device. Relax your muscles. Inflate once again using slow amounts up until you experience a pleasant stretch.

You can continue to keep inflating until you attain the suitable traction angle as well as proper amount of stretch and/or pain relief in accordance with level of comfort or as recommended through your health practitioner. Shut the valves(automatic with newer version) to prevent any seepage of air. You could modify placement on your neck as needed until comfort and pain relief are achieved, but avoid using the air tube to adjust the unit or damage may occur. When proper comfort is achieved, the stopper can be placed inside the tube and part of the tube and the bulb can be removed.

When through with your therapy session, open up the roller valves and then unscrew the valves on the bulbs and the air will discharge or just press the button on the new bulb. As soon as the air has let out adequately, you may remove it. Allow the air to fully escape and place inside the case intended for protected keeping. Remember, this is an air inflatable device, so handle with care.

Begin traction gently with minor and moderate level of traction at 1-2 times a day, then move on to more traction if comfortable. When you become used to it, the device can be used 2-3 times a day for a maximum of 20-30 minutes each time. Use at your own convenience while watching TV, working on computers, reading, traveling, reclining or relaxing, etc.

With every purchase of Air Neck Traction, you get a FREE therapy massage ball.
