I have been suffering from a pinched nerve for a month. HORRIBLY PAINFUL!!!! I’ve been going to a chiropractor 3 times a week, icing it, etc and nothing worked. I used this device one night and the next day I was remarkably better. I used it all day today off and on and it felt so good and I am so much better. When you use it, make sure the front part stays under your chin the whole time. As you inflate, you will feel the pull/stretch of your neck. I NEVER write reviews. I’ve bought a lot of nice things from Amazon, but this is by far the best purchase I have ever made!
Product operates well. Expands flawlessly. Appears to be well constructed. I have copd and am claustrophobic , that being said, the top strap is difficult for me to use. Though even without it I can achieve a decent stretching of the muscle and spine. If you can handle the top strap you should be able to achieve lift off if you so desired. Product does a wonderful job of supporting your head to relieve strained or fatigued muscles.
I purchased this inflatable traction pillow for may daughter. She competes in Jumpers (horses). Recently had a fall doing ground work and really bruised her neck area. She had tried everything but, still suffered early mornings from stiffness and discomfort. She was a little hesitant to try this stretching / support pillow but, has been so pleased she did. It seems to be beneficial stretching everything out after sleeping. Gives her the relief to get on with her day - otherwise she was struggling. She said that by evening because of tiredness, she was using it again for about 10 - 15 minutes. She said she even thinks it has relieved a bit of stress in her back. With 4 children, this has been a life saver. Says she won't go to another horse show without it. lol.. Great product!
Everything about this product is well thought out and of good quality. Easy to use !! I am a licensed massage therapist and have also been a patient with a severe neck fracture. This device, plus a good heating wrap, is all you need to soothe even the worst neck spasms and pain!! After applying the heat for about 20 minutes...use the Ksmarts traction device... I find 15 minutes does the trick. Important to note **** if you are a neck pain sufferer, make sure your body is well hydrated... drink lots of water, so that when you use the traction device, your disc spaces get the circulation that is key for pain relief !!
I've had cervical disc problems since 1973. Nothing designed for home use is better than this stretcher for decompression and really prompt relief for neck/nerve pains!
