Cervical Traction Unit

Tuesday, January 17, 2006

Is there a neck traction apparatus that consists of a neck brace that attaches to a cord then to a weight (a bag with water in it) to stretch the neck and relieve pressure on pinched nerves? It comes with the brace, a cord, some pulleys with hooks that attach to the ceiling and a bag that you put water in to get the amount required for the desired weight? I had one some time ago but have been unable to find one since. There are a number of Cervical Traction Units designed to meet your specific requirements. Follow the links below to evaluate some of these items: Deluxe Over-Door Traction Kit This item features:
