Cervical traction, or neck traction,  is a popular treatment for general neck pain relief and other specific neck pains like a pinched nerve (aka radiculopathy), disc issues, arthritis, and stenosis.

There are some precautions and contraindications to cervical traction, so make sure you check with your doctor or physical therapist before trying it.

Basically, traction gently stretches the neck to help separates the discs and joint surfaces in the cervical spine (neck).

Cervical traction can also help relieve muscle spasms, increase blood flow to injured areas, relieve pain, and help reduce numbness and tingling in the arms.

The folks at SunMy Miami sent me their Neck Pain Terminator to try. It has a unique design with an S-Shape or Z-Shape (depending on which direction you put it) to help relieve pressure through gravity.
