Neck Decompressors are most commonly used to improve and relieve herniated, protruding, or bulging cervical discs, but have also been proven to be useful in providing relief from headaches, limited range of motion in the neck, shoulder and arm pain, as well as general neck pain.
This clinical quality device is designed to surround the neck using three rings of separate inflatable cushions. These cushions expand when filled with air using the attached manual hand pump (much like you would picture on a blood pressure sleeve).
As these cushions expand they apply gentle pressure under the chin and to the shoulders, forcing the neck to stretch upwards and consequently releasing pressure from the cervical discs and nerves.
The main features of this device are:
- The velour-feel fabric on the top cushion avoids irritation and chafing under the chin.
- The manual pump air-bulb keeps you in control throughout the entire duration of the treatment, through both inflation and the rate of decompression.
- This device can be used while sitting, standing, or even lying down making it optimal for individual comfort and allowing for relaxation. The more relaxed the patient is during the treatment, the more effective it will be. Therefore greater results will be seen in a situation where the subject is relaxed and comfortable. It can even be used while lying in bed!
- The decompressor is very lightweight and portable, weighing less than a pound, for ease of use in any situation or location. Designed to be used at home, at work, while travelling, as a passenger in a vehicle, etc giving you even more control over the when and where you choose to do your sessions.
- The deluxe model of this device includes an easy to read gauge near the pump, allowing you to read the amount of air in the pillows and giving you the opportunity to create consistency in each and every therapy session.
- This simple design is very easy to use which allows the subject to self-treat without assistance.
- The device includes a one year Manufacturer’s Warranty against defects, although not against regular wear and tear or improper use.
While proven to be highly effective in many cases, not all spinal problems respond well to decompression therapy, therefore it is vital to discuss your options with your doctor before beginning any new treatment plan.
They will not only be able to tell you if it is a good option for your particular circumstance, they will also be able to give you specific instructions on how long and how often you should use this particular device initially, and throughout your treatment. It should also be noted that this device is not recommended for recent or acute injuries.
The value judged by cost for this device is very high; it is very inexpensive in relation to similar therapy items currently on the market! The evidence and science is undeniable, if you are experiencing neck pain and it is deemed that decompression therapy will help, this device is absolutely worth the cost for you!
