Frequently Asked Questions

ANSWER:
Cervical traction continues to be utilized for many years for relief of pain associated with neck muscle spasms or nerve root compression. Traction is a medical technique through which reverse forces are applied to separate parts of the body to stretch gentle tissues, and/or separate bony structures. Cervical pneumatic traction is the use of a pneumatic bladder device applied to the neck area which gradually lifts, stretches and separates the neck vertebrae into their proper curved shape resulting in regaining normal length and alignment of the cervical involved vertebrae. It typically requires a couple of minutes of repetitive sustained traction until the intervertebral spaces commence to widen which lessen or eliminates neck muscle spasm.
