Understanding the Cervical Stretching Device: How Do You Use an Inflatable Neck Brace?
If you’re unsure if this inflatable neck brace is right for you, keep reading to find out the benefits of using a neck traction device such as this one! Our cervical neck pillow offers a range of personalized, at-home neck pain treatment options for various forms of neck-related pain. The stretcher is easy to put on and inflate for quick, effective, and instant pain relief. When the cervical traction stretcher is inflated partially, general neck support allows the neck muscles to rest and relax. Then, extend the pillow to receive more effective stretching therapy to relieve your neck muscles, joints, and discs. When using a cervical neck stretcher, the long-term goal is to provide enough pressure release and decompression to restore the normal function of your neck.
To use the cervical neck stretcher, start by undoing the fasteners and position the inflatable pillow comfortably around your neck. Once the cervical traction device is positioned, secure the high-quality, durable fasteners around the neck, ensuring they aren’t too tight. Next, loosen the metal valve by unscrewing, ensuring the bead is in an open position before you begin inflating. Inflate the neck stretcher by squeezing the hand pump to inflate the pillow to your desired pressure level. Close the metal valve and push the ball into the tube to seal the air. Feel free to take the lower portion of the tube and handheld pressure pump off, so you can walk around, work, or relax comfortably.
Neck Traction vs. Neck Decompression: What’s The Difference?
To properly heal aching neck pain, it’s essential to understand what precisely cervical traction and neck decompression therapy is and which form will be best for you. Keep reading to learn how each form of treatment works and how it could benefit you.
What is Neck Traction?
Traction is a pulling force to treat joint, bone, or muscle problems. Neck traction, or cervical traction, uses a gentle pulling force on the neck. Perform cervical traction practices through stretches, exercises, or traction devices like this inflatable neck pillow. Using traction as a form of neck-pain relief has many benefits, such as:
- Easing painful pressure
- Restricting muscles from contracting
- Resting a cervical spine injury
- Relaxing muscles
- Supporting nerve function
What is Cervical Decompression?
Neck decompression is a form of therapy that is helpful to relieve pain in the neck, usually for the treatment of pain caused by cervical bulging, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, cervical stenosis, and headaches. Cervical decompression provides a gentle stretch, pulling the neck and head upward. During this stretch, decompression can relieve any pressure from the joints and discs located in the neck. Cervical decompression offers benefits for neck health and pain relief, such as:
- Neck disc repair
- Headache relief
- Promoted blood flow
- Prevents painful pressure
- Natural pain relief
This neck pain relief device offers neck decompression and traction to help relieve any pain in the cervical spine and shoulders. Control the level of stretch you receive by using the handheld pressure pump to adjust the level of air inflated into the neck pillow, allowing you to personalize your neck stretching routine and treatment.
Neck Pain-Relief Timeline: How Long Does It Take for Neck Traction to Work?
The path to neck pain can be a long journey, but with this cervical stretcher, you’ll start gaining back function of your neck. When using the neck traction pillow, you’ll want to slowly ease into it, allowing your neck pain to recover without further injury or pain. We recommend starting out using the cervical collar for 10 to 15 minutes once per day for the first week. By the second week, wear the inflatable neck pillow up to 2 times daily for 15 to 20 minutes. In the third week of use, use the soft cervical collar as often as you need for your neck pain. Depending on the severity of your neck pain, you may start seeing results and relief by the third week of use.
