What is cervical traction?
A highly effective method of applying a distraction force used to relieve neck pain for individuals suffering from arthritis, herniated and/or bulging discs, cervical muscle strains and spasms.
Cervical traction works by gently pulling the head away from the neck. By doing so:
The muscles begin to relax and gradually stretch, along with ligaments around the spine.
The intervertebral space expands, which brings blood flow, circulation, and nutrition to the areas which were being compressed.
Increased circulation helps to oxygenate muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments, which leads to decreased pain and increased mobility.
Pinched nerves are released. Herniated and bulging discs reduce. pressure is relieved.
What makes The Neck Hammock Different?
In the past, individuals could only receive traction at a physical therapist's office. But these visits are often time consuming, inconvenient, and costly.
Today, there are many at-home cervical traction devices, but most are complex, cumbersome, bulky, expensive, and potentially injurious.
What is needed is an easy to use, compact, non-marring, effective traction device that minimizes discomfort and avoids potentially injurious stresses, while giving the patient ultimate relaxation and pain relief.
And that's how and why The Neck Hammock was created!
Can The Neck Hammock replace physical therapy?
While The Neck Hammock achieves many of the same benefits of physical and massage therapy, it is not meant to replace these modalities.
