Updated on February 3, 2017

Is Pinched Nerve Causing You Unbearable Neck Pain?

Pain from pinched nerve is on the rise especially of the neck. It is estimated that almost half of all adults have experienced a sore neck at some time in the past 5 years.

We will explore in this article the benefits of pinched nerve traction device awaiting sore necks throughout the world.

Causes of Pinched Nerves

One of the common causes for pinched nerves is disc degeneration. Disc degeneration is caused by wear and tear over the years with the disc getting thinner which narrows the vertebral spaces.

This can cause the nerves to become pinched and irritated. This may then be followed with tingling and numbness in the shoulders and neck. Tension, stress, whiplash and other injuries can all contribute to pinched nerves over time.

Different Treatments for Pinched Nerve in Neck

Neck pain from pinched nerves can be treated in a variety of ways. If it is caused by an injury or accident the typical care includes wearing a neck collar, ice pack, and bed rest.

Chiropractors frequently use neck traction to bring relief for muscle spasms and pain from pinched nerves. This lifts the weight of your head up off the neck allowing the pinched nerve roots to be temporarily decompressed. Your chiropractor may recommend home pinched nerve traction device following treatment.

If you are using a pinched nerve traction device at home you will need to keep visiting your chiropractor for adjustments.

Misaligned Cervical Spine Creating Pinched Nerve

Misalignment occurs when your spine curvature is shaped differently than it is suppose to be. This causes nerve pressure and pain. This is also called pinched nerve. A cervical traction device can be used to bring relief to neck discomfort and pain from misalignment of the spine.

Cervical lordosis is caused by severe trauma and affects a vertebral group in the spine. Activities can also cause us to maintain abnormal positions by keeping your head lower or protruded more than it would be in its normal position. This can lead to long term problems. Cervical traction device can provide relief to the discomfort and pain of a misaligned spine.

Muscle spasm and pain can also be relieved by using a traction device.

How Does Neck Traction Device Help Relieve Pinched Nerve?

The traction device works using air introduced slowly into the neck collar by an inflation bulb. The neck is supported in a vertical position to bring relief while stretching muscles that are tight relieving pressure in the neck. The elongating action provided by the neck traction device relieves the intra-vertebral disc pressure.

Just a few minutes of use can produce incredible pain relief. Increased blood supply to the tendons, ligaments and muscles of the neck can be obtained by using the pinched nerve traction device on a regular basis.
