The DDS Max Cervical Traction Collar can be worn in an upright position and allows for mobility, compared to nearly all other cervical units requiring patients to lie down or be restricted to the confines of a door.
The Max inflates vertically gently pushing upward on the occipital bone and down on the shoulder. This creates a chin-tuck sensation and decompresses the cervical spine. Pressure applied on the nerve root is relieved, eliminating pain while assisting active rehabilitation and speeding up your recovery.
The process is simple: by increasing the intervertebral disc space, pressure applied on the nerve root is relieved, thereby, eliminating pain while assisting active-rehabilitation. Spinal decompression reveals promising results for the future, and effective management of patients with all types of disc disease and spinal injuries.
"I am very happy with the brace. If my back is hurting I stop whatever I am doing and put the brace on for a couple of hours. And the pain is gone and I can continue with my task."Anonymous
"I have been suffering with chronic back pain for many years and have undergone numerous treatment modalities, as well as pain management. As a rehabilitation professional, I felt I had exhausted my options and feared surgical intervention was the only resource left."Phyllis Mandel P.T. Administrative Director
