Pronex Cervical Traction Device

Why use cervical traction?
Cervical traction relieves pressure by stretching the posterior muscular, ligamentous and connective tissue components of the cervical spine. It expands the intervertebral joint space, opening the intervertebral foramen. (Colachis & Strohm, 1965; Harris,1977; Jackson,1979; Cyriax,1982; Trestle,1988; and Wong, et al,1992.)

Pain caused by muscle spasm, nerve root compression, osteoarthritis or facet joint dysfunction often responds favorably to cervical traction therapy. (Matthew,1972; Murphy,1991; Rosomoff, et al,1992.)

How It works
PRONEX cradles your head and neck on two soft foam cushions. One cushion supports the back of the head and the other rests against the upper trapezius (back muscle). An air-inflated bellows between them provides up to 20 lbs of continuously adjustable traction. As the bellows expands, it lifts the head upward supporting the cervical curve and maintaining an even distraction in the anterior and posterior cervical discs. You have total control over the amount of traction applied - squeezing an inflator bulb increases the pressure, a release knob gently reduces it. There is no strain on the temporomandibular joint.

Proof of effectiveness
Professionally conducted surveys prove that PRONEX relieves pain, promotes the healing process, and helps patients resume normal work and social activities. (A survey of more than 300 PRONEX users revealed the product's effectiveness in relieving chronic cervical pain.)

I personally use the Pronex device for my tension headaches. Daily stress settles in my cervical muscles, and with regular end of the day use of home traction I am headache-free and sleep better!

Pays for itself
Reduces pharmacy bills for anti-inflammatory medications, minimizes lost workdays, and often eliminates the need for ongoing office visits and drawn-out physical therapy. Patient manages pain control at home.

When Cervical Traction may be CONTRAINDICATED
Individuals with hypermobility or instability problems may not respond favorably to traction and it could aggravate the symptoms. For example, the cervical strain injury commonly known as "whiplash" may result in ligamentous instability. This could contraindicate cervical traction therapy - I have used it with success in my patient panel, but you need to discuss its use with your physician or physical therapist first.

Severe rheumatoid arthritis, infections and inflammatory disease, fractures, or other serious pathology or disease like tumors (malignancy), and spinal cord compression are other reasons NOT TO USE cervical traction. Cervical traction used in these cases may worsen or aggravate your underlying condition and make symptoms much worse!

Discuss your ability to use cervical traction to treat your condition with your physician! PRONEX is a prescription device and should only be used after full instruction by a health care professional!
