Cervical traction is a popular treatment for general neck pain relief and specific diagnoses like: a pinched nerve known as radiculopathy, disc issues, arthritis, stenosis, and a few others.

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

Basically, cervical traction gently stretches your neck to help relieve pain in the disc and joints in your cervical spine (neck). It can help relieve muscle spasms, increase blood flow to injured areas, relieve pain, and help reduce numbness and tingling in the arms.

Today I am using the Restcloud Neck Stretcher, which helps stretch and relieve pressure through gravity. It’s also very portable, so it’s great for taking it with you when you need it.
