How Neck Traction Can Help Relieve Pinched Nerve in Neck
Neck traction using an air neck traction device has become a very popular way to help relieve a pinched nerve. This is a very safe method as well. You will be using a small device that resembles a neck brace that is inflated. You control the inflation, allowing you to stretch your neck to a level that is comfortable for you.
Neck traction should never cause pain. You should feel a gentle stretch in your neck. If you start to feel pain, immediately deflate the device a bit until the pain stops.
Air neck traction devices should be used in increments of 15 minutes. You should aim to do a session at least twice a day to promote healing of a pinched nerve and to maintain flexibility in the neck. You can also add a few extra sessions in each day as needed for acute pain and stiffness in the neck. These should also be 15 minutes long.
