Cervical traction for neck pain can be used for a variety of purposes. It can be used to help decrease compressive forces in the neck, which can help take pressure off of the discs that reside between the vertebrae in the neck. It can also open up the spaces where nerves exit the spinal canal, which can help relieve pressure from a compressed nerve. Cervical traction therapy can be an effective treatment for neck pain and associated neck conditions, like arthritis or disc bulges and herniations. It can be achieved through yoga poses, assisted stretching or with the help of a chiropractor, physical therapist, orthopedic or massage therapist. There is both manual and mechanical traction, both have the same goal of decompressing the spine. With manual cervical traction a general physician that is trained in manual spinal manipulations will use their hands to pull the neck gently and rhythmically, applying pressure, then releasing intermittently. This is one of the most common ways of practicing this treatment as the therapist can turn the neck and do traction at different angles. With mechanical traction the patient is placed on a table with a harness holding their head so it can automatically pull it away from the torso, stretching and releasing the neck intermittently. When the patient is getting mechanical traction, typically they are lying down on their back on a flat surface to make sure they are comfortable and relaxed. Traction can be used on for days or weeks, depending on the level of neck pain and how well the neck or spine is responding to the treatment. The results of this treatment differ from person to person and help in relieving pain from the neck and helps in ability to turn the head, look up or down, or perform normal activities like sleeping or exercising.
