The 1100 cervical disc hydrator traction device is the newest model produced by Posture Pump. This unit is designed to naturally minimize pain caused by arthritis, herniated discs, and stiff muscles and can even promote a healthier sleep pattern and treat headaches. The design itself is different from traditional home cervical traction devices and works to improve your range of motion and flexibility.
Posture Pump 1100 Cervical Disc Hydrator Traction Device Overview: A Different Approach to Rehabilitation
The 1100 can improve the mobility of the cervical vertebral joints by gently pulling the head and neck forward, which in turn reduces tension and pressure, allowing pinched nerves and stiff muscles to relax. Essentially, it helps the body to maintain the spine’s normal curve for improved mobility and pain reduction.
Made to hydrate and decompress discs that have become damaged, while also realigning the vertebra into the normal C curved shape, this model utilizes three individual air cells that can be manually inflated with the use of a hand pump.
Realigning The Vertebra
The point of realigning the vertebra is to prevent the discs from becoming compressed and preventing lubricating fluids to move freely between the vertebras. Dry discs can result in significant pain and changes in the range of motion and overall mobility. Pain and back and neck stiffness are common signs associated with this condition.[/box]
Pros and Cons
Treatment success will be different for everyone and depends on a variety of factors including your age, diagnosis, settings you choose and frequency of treatment. It’s important that you have realistic expectations in terms of what this system can do. Overall, the feedback received from consumers was mainly positive. Any common issues regarding pain or discomfort can be caused by using this system incorrectly.
Pros: This is a portable device that can be easily packed and transported. It’s definitely more cost effective than weekly chiropractor visits. When the right amount of force is used, you can expect immediate results. It’s also a safer option than door hanging traction devices because you have more control over the force used.
Cons: If you use this device longer than recommended you may experience an increase in pain and discomfort. If you turn the settings too high you can also experience pain, muscle tenderness and discomfort, so start off slow and pay attention to how your body is responding to treatment.
