Well Worth the Money I ordered this unit for our college aged daughter after the doctor prescribed traction for her after a mishap. She was diagnosed with a herniated disk and traction then possible surgery was prescribed. This was a much cheaper option than the unit they suggested she buy. Simply put it is a tool and will be no better than how it is used but I am convinced this relatively inexpensive unit saved her a costly and possibly dangerous surgery. She was able to face the door and read a book which helped her pass the time. I suggest not falling into the trap of “more is better” on the weight, so that your muscles don’t fight the traction. Just relax and let gravity do it’s job. As they say not all results will be the same but she got relief from her after the first 15 minute session and had a full recovery after a couple of weeks of intermittent use. I would definitely buy this unit again if needed. Best of luck and I hope this was helpful.

Big time relief from pain, tingling and numbness. Helping decrease my need for meds! I’m not going to post a photo because this thing squishes your face and makes you look pretty funny while you’re strapped in, but… I LOVE THIS CONTRAPTION!!! I have a herniated disk (C5) which causes a great deal of pain on one side of my neck that radiates down my left arm. I’ve been in physically therapy for this issue on and off for years and the one thing that seems to do the most good when I see my PT is the traction machine. My insurance wouldn’t approve a home traction unit and I can’t afford the fancier ones myself, but this Traction Kit is everything I need and it didn’t even come close to breaking the bank.:: Setup ::Getting things set up was fairly easy. It comes in 6 parts (the door hanger thing, the triangle shaped bracket with pulleys, a rope, the metal spreader bar, cotton/velcro head gear and the empty water bag). The instructions were well written and included photos so there’s not much chance of doing things wrong. I didn’t like that I had to tie…

With regular, careful use this device made a world of difference for me! Very effective, although it takes regular use (once or twice daily for week or two) and experimentation with seating position. One warning from my experience: relief was not immediate, it took 3-4 days before I started getting the relief I expected, and a couple weeks or regular use to achieve total relief.Cervical traction kit was recommended by my chiropractor who gave me several tips on use:- Sit facing the door- Place your chair slightly off center, away from the side that is most painful- Work the weight up gradually (I’ve gone from about 1/2 full bag initially to full bag)- Work the time up gradually (from 4-6 minutes to 15-16 minutes)- Put the strap on your head first- Set water bag on your lap, then hook head strap to bar, then hook water bag up- Keep timer/smartphone close by–within easy reach–to set timer, etc.It is a bit awkward and the first couple of times you may want to have someone assist you, however, once…
