I have this traction device…
Do you guys have any tips or warnings about it. Should I be sitting up or laying down? Can I resume everyday activity while I have this device on, or should I try to remain perfectly still. Also are ther restrictions on the way I move my neck immediately after I use this device?[/quote]
Such a device may provide pain relief but won’t replace long-term therapy by a competent chiropractor. If you have numerous vertabrae misaligned, only constant adjustment, as in DAILY, will resolve that.
Anyone worth his salt will adjust you once daily for at least two weeks, every other day for two weeks, then once per week for at least a year. Don’t expect immediate cures (it doesn’t work that way; you are re-aligning your spine).
Your insurance company won’t like this. They want you to go once every 3 months and get a prescription for an opiate-based pain killer. It saves them money but you’ll never be cured.
