The Apex Neck Orthotic Helps Sore Muscles & Stiff Joints By Restoring Cervical Spine Biomechanics

A simple, yet elegant tool, the neck orthotic is used for pain relief and curve restoration while it helps improve posture, providing alignment and therapeutic stretching.

If your looking for solutions to better neck posture as well as relief from headaches and neck pain, this orthotic device is a great place to start. Designed for restoration of the normal curve of the cervical spine as well as better posture and stretching. It can be used just 10 to 15 minutes a day to help restore and maintain the healthy arc of the neck.

Measures used in correcting forward head posture are promoted by chiropractors and physical therapists to help restore normal cervical biomechanics, which allows maximum relaxation of muscles and better alignment of joints. This eases stress on discs and sensitive nerves.

By using it under your neck when lying down, the design acts like therapeutic hands to help provide the release of stiff & sore muscles that are often related to headaches and cervical spine related pain. By employing some simple posture correcting exercises, rehabilitation of the cervical spine is enhanced.

It is designed to make your life more pain free. Relaxing under the cervical spine allows the bones to maintain the arc through linear gravity as well as passive stretching pressure using the head’s own weight. This provides a relaxing therapy for the neck and muscles. Nerves and joints are better aligned for pain relief and healing. By using regularly, you can help restore the natural curve for better spinal health.

Neck Orthotic & Headaches

Most individuals spend too much time in the sitting position. When sitting is done for hours on end, there are many negative health consequences. The cervical spine is especially vulnerable to the negative effects of prolonged sitting while working at a desk job, computer or reading. The cervical spine relies on muscles for motion. This region has many muscles that connect around the neck, upper back, shoulders and chest. These muscles are all related to posture.

Many times, long hours of work in a sitting posture stresses the muscles at the base of the head. The muscles in this area become weak, stretched, over contracted and sore. The typical forward head posture constricts these muscles and this can cause cervical headaches as muscles knots develop causing spasm and tender areas called trigger points that refer pain to the head.

Neck Orthotic & Pain Relief

Because the neck is connected by muscles to the head, upper back, chest and shoulders, altered contraction from sustained, awkward postures result in contractions which stress the upper body and allow compression of joints, discs and nerves. Over time, these joints can wear down, discs may bulge and sensitive nerves are irritated. This creates pain and leads to weakened structures that do not function properly and are more prone to neck injuries and the effects of degeneration. Long term strain takes away vital energy, reducing work productivity and making it more difficult to get comfortable and relax during leisure time.

Office treatments and medicines are a standard approach. When you are traveling and can’t get to the therapist or when you can’t take medications, an orthotic device for the neck can make your life easier and less painful. This permits you to focus more on the things that are important like that special business trip or relaxing with friends and family.

It helps with neck pain relief by using body weight when lying down with the orthopedically designed system of suspension and special height adjustment system, which allows it to provide restoration and relief. This, coupled with the mild traction effect, gently stretches the cervical spine to ease muscle, joint, disc and nerves tension without wires, batteries, collars or pumps.

The orthotic provides the neck with a nice curve that allows efficient force distribution and restoration for reduced restriction and better motion. When the normal arc curve in the neck is not present, it is frequently straight or in a flattened position, like military neck. This does not permit normal cervical spine function, resulting in pain and dysfunction. This special device reestablishes the normal arc curve of the neck.
