Cervical Traction involves applying traction or pressure, through a set of weights, to the cervical bones in order to reduce and eliminate pain in the neck. The person has to lie down and the physical therapist will first fit a harness on to the neck and held on by the head. At the other end, there would be a machine, on which the force to be applied can be set. On the advice of the orthopedic/general physician, the therapist will set the appropriate level of force or traction to be applied. The treatment can be done at home also if the equipment needed is available.
The Cervical Traction Therapy has to be carried out in a slow and gradual process. These are very sensitive parts of the human body and therefore the traction is generally applied in stages and for a period of 10 to 20 minutes. Depending on the response the patient is experiencing, the traction can be applied a few times a day. The Cervical Traction for Neck Pain can relieve pain not only in the neck portion, but also in the back and the shoulders. The affected person has to review some of the postures, like standing or while sleeping so that the results of the therapy can be longer lasting. Otherwise the pain can return and the cervical traction treatment might have to be repeated all over again.
