Causes of pinched nerves

One of the common causes 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 over time.

Computer Influences

With the growing use of computers in the work place and at home there has in turn been a growing problem with pinched nerves as a result of poor posture during frequent computer use. Usually just a few minor adjustments to your computer area can improve your online posture.

Treatments for Neck Pain

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 nerves. This lifts the weight of your head up off the neck allowing the nerve roots to be temporarily decompressed. Your chiropractor may recommend cervical 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. Use this Cervical Traction Device in combination with chiropractor visit for effective pinched nerve treatment.

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

Muscle spasm and pain can be relieved by use of the traction device

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. Pinched nerve traction can provide relief to the discomfort and pain of a misaligned spine.

How does pinched nerve traction device work?

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.
