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.
"Apparently all I needed was to take even a slight amount of lift off my affected area. While I still was limited in my range of motion for some time (until healing occurred) there was definitely immediate relief and I am thankful for that."Name Withheld
"It gave me complete relief the first time. And actually each and every subsequent time. The DDS Max became my best friend as I healed. My wife called it my security blanket because I took it with me everywhere. I used it anywhere from 1 to 8 x every day. All that I needed was the cervical McKenzie positioning exercises and my DDS Max. No pain meds, no surgery.
