Cervical Traction Unit®
When cervical traction is performed twice
daily for the prescribed time (3-5 minutes) amazing
Joint mobility and range of motion improve, stiffness
reduces, neck curve restoration is accelerated, and pain
The cervical traction is used twice per
day from the time you start care and continues for as
long as you
want to enjoy the benefits of a healthy spine.
Consistent use will enhance spinal joint health and
mobility by warming and softening the ligaments,
cartilage, and discs allowing the joints to move through
a full, healthy range of motion.
Additionally, it helps restore the normal neck curve
Ligaments, discs, and joints have no
blood supply (avascular). The only way they absorb
eliminate waste is through motion. The repetitive up
and down action (or loading/unloading cycle) of the
traction acts like a pump moving nutrients in and
waste materials out of the discs and joints. The
mild stretching of the neck muscles also drives the
remodeling of scar tissue towards a stronger and less
pain sensitive neck.
The Home Rehabilitation Program is a synergistic
combination of the Wobble Chair, Cervical Traction
Unit, Pettibon Weighting System, and Spinal Molding
Fulcrums to get you the fastest results possible. Other
home equipment/exercises will be prescribed as
needed. Missing any part of the prescribed exercises
equates to an exponential loss of results.
If you are having difficulty with any part of your
rehabilitation program or have questions on how it can
easily fit into your day,
please ask the doctor or staff for assistance. We are
here to help you.
