I’ve been looking for something to help me improve the debilitating pain in my neck and I think I’ve found it. I received this neck traction device just a few days ago and have to admit that I am quite amazed by its simplicity and flexibility.
Not only is it possible to stretch my neck in 3 different ways, it also fits well for my head size and easy to carry around. I think the manufacturer paid sufficient attention to the material and stitching which makes an impact on the way the overall stretching works. It has to be soft and slightly stretchable but not too much as it has to withstand the pull pressure.
Traction functionality comes largely from a thoughtful design where the head is fully embraced by the device and comfortably rests inside, no matter which of the 3 traction types I choose. The inner side of the device is layered with plush fabric, providing cushioning both at the chin and back of the head. I must say that the first time I wore it, I felt more pressure on my chin which I'm not used to but over several tries and properly adjusting the fit around my head, I got used to the fit and rebalanced the chin and the rear. The hole at the chin with the soft pad really helps to even out the pressure on the chin. This is important as most other devices only stretch the neck from the rear. I think this is where this device differentiates from others by helping to strengthen the traction experience but yet keep it well balanced between front and rear. This is especially important when I try to pull my neck more to gain more alignment. Straps and clips are rather strong and assembly is rather simple. Just had to refer to the very clearly detailed manual the first time around to achieve the 3 types of traction options.
My experience with this device has been good. Not only did I achieve the feeling of relief from decompression of my neck nerves, I also got rid of constant giddiness. And that was just after a few days of trial. What a surprise after suffering for so long and forking out so much money on other devices. This device saved my neck! Now I plan using it long term by alternating between stronger vertical decompression pulls and just relaxing under horizontal stretching.
Strongly recommend this neck decompression device to anyone who constantly feels compression and pain in the neck.
