Cervical traction is a popular treatment that can help relieve general neck pain and specific diagnoses like a pinched nerve known as radiculopathy, disc issues, arthritis, stenosis, and a few others.
NOTE: There are some precautions and contraindications to cervical traction, so make sure you check with your doctor or physical therapist before trying it.
Basically, a cervical traction pillow gently stretches the neck to help relieve pain in the disc and joints in your cervical spine (neck).
Today I am using the Kanuda Head Nap, which helps stretch and relieve pressure through gravity. It’s designed by physical therapists, and helps simulate manual traction that targets pressure points to help relieve tension and knots as well. It’s also very portable, so it’s easy to take it with you when you need it.
Cervical traction can help relieve muscle spasms, increase blood flow to injured areas, relieve pain, and help reduce numbness and tingling in the arms.
