Overview

SRP: $75.00

The Dual-Purpose Cervical Traction Unit allows you to handle every possible configuration that can be presented to the cervical spine for both exercises:

1. The Cervical Repetitive Traction
2. The Cervical Traction Pull

The adjustable doughnut-shaped converters allow for 3 specific positions of the posterior cervical roll for both exercises.

Exercise 1: REPETITIVE CERVICAL TRACTION:

Position #1: "THIN” (converters furthest from each other): This thin posterior position allows for an upper-cervical specific focus for the Cervical Repetitive Traction. This is the roll thickness that you’re used to.

Position #2: "COMFORT” (converters about 1” apart): This position can be used as a comfort position to take pressure off the spinous processes for sensitive patients.

Position #3: "WIDE” (converters together in the center): This thick position allows for a more dispersed force in the cervical spine during Cervical Repetitive Traction for cases that you suspect ligament damage. This position simulates a wide/fat roll.

Exercise 2: CERVICAL TRACTION PULL: This is a new exercise that can be performed to improve the cervical lordosis.

Position #1: "THIN” (converters furthest from each other): This position provides a 2-3 vertebrae segment* focus for the Cervical Traction Pull. This is the roll thickness that you’re used to.

Position #2: "COMFORT” (converters about 1” apart): This position can be used as a comfort position to take pressure off the spinous processes for sensitive patients.

Position #3: "WIDE” (converters together in the center): This position allows for a wider 4-5 vertebrae segment* focus for the Cervical Traction Pull. Use if you suspect ligament damage or want a broader area of focus. This position simulates a wide/fat roll.

*"Segment" refers to specific spinal vertebra segment(s) being focused on during the exercise. Thin traction allows for a focused vertebral area while doing the prescribed exercise. Wide traction allows for a broad vertebral area while doing the prescribed exercise.

-------------------

This is an essential part of any chiropractic home care. It is simple and easy to use. Designed by experts in the field of spinal correction, it drastically reduces the time it takes to restore healthy cervical curvature and takes only minutes to maintain it.
 
Instructions:
1. Perform cervical warm-up, joint lubrication, and cartilage nourishment exercises (twist, flex and extend head/neck).
2. Adjust the connection so that the curved piece hangs slightly lower than the back of the head.
3. Pull handles down until stopped by curved neck piece with handles at shoulder height.
4. Place curved piece behind neck and padded handle under chin or on forehead. Place one hand on each handle end, with palms toward face.
5. Hold handles firmly; relax the knees so some body weight is supported by the traction. Traction is applied and controlled by bending the knees.
6. Begin with 10 and work up to 60 repetitions per session.
7. Add deep diaphragmatic breathing with traction, then exhale completely and forcibly when the traction is released.
8. Ice the neck for 10 minutes if any pain is experienced.

NOTE: Loop rope through strap. Place Door Stop over door and close door.

Rope may be extended by adding extra rope (not included).

For maximum results, your Maximized Living Doctor may recommend using this item along with other items in the Homecare Kit.
