Introducing the Arc4life Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow

What a mouthful eh? The Arc4life Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow - I always have to laugh when I talk about this pillow with someone.

Arc4life sells many neck pillows on their website. Almost 18 different varieties actually. All the pillows have a purpose. They are not just your regular garden variety of pillows. This is one of the pillows that can help many patients with neck pain and discomfort.


What makes this pillow a standout?

The pillow is contoured made especially for the contours of your neck. If you do not have a proper curve in your neck, then it will help you get on.

The pillow has two specific sides (see below) and each side has a purpose.

So you could say this is is definitely a pillow with a real purpose...

The Two Sides of the Traction Pillow

Side 1: The V

The V Side of the pillow gently stretches your neck. Great for someone with a military neck, herniated disc, or bulging disc. Also great for arthritis patients.

Side 2: The Roll

The neck roll side of the pillow supports your neck in the most natural position possible. This neck roll side is actually softer to sleep on.


check out the video below showing the two sides of this pillow:

Dr. Matthew Bellinger is a Chiropractor in the quaint town of Glastonbury CT. He recommends the traction pillow for his patients at his office because it helps them with many different conditions. In this video he is explaining and showing you the two sides of the traction pillow.Check it out:

My Rating for this Pillow:

5 stars for Comfort of the Cltraction Pillow

What Else Can you use with this pillow to help your neck pain condition more?

I get this question quite a bit.

A customer will call us first to help them choose the best pillow for them. Depending on what they have going on we will recommend the arc4life traction pillow. Most times it works out for them. A few weeks or months later, we will get a phone call for more advice. What else can i do for my pain specifically during the day? "The numbness and tingling is much better at night and i am able to sleep."

My next step is usually to recommend neck traction during the day. Stretching their neck using a traction unit such as the posture pump or trac collar for 15 minutes a day, 3-4 times per week is very beneficial. This traction used in conjunction with the pillow really helps neck pain from a herniated or bulging disc condition in the c spine.

Here is a great hub detailing how to choose a neck traction system:

Other great items that will help:

- a hot and cold pack for the neck and shoulder area

- a natural pain relief gel. This will help with muscle spasm pain

- a tens unit- another great item for muscle spasm and tightness

Finally, don't forget to do neck stretches regularly to keep your muscles from tightening up. You can even do them in the shower as well each morning.
