The neck or cervical spine is vulnerable to conditions that cause pain and reduce motion. Neck pain often results from poor posture habits when working or sleeping in an awkward position, muscle strain injuries, joint irritation, stress & tension, headaches, arthritis or bulging, herniated discs. TracCollar may help you to improve your posture and provide neck pain relief by gently lifting the weight of your head off of your neck and shoulders providing neck traction, which acts as a decompression force in the cervical spine.
For those whom experience arthritis with pain in the neck and shoulders, TracCollar, a therapeutic neck traction collar, will help to take pressure of gravity off the stiff and painful joints in comfort and hekp to improve mobility of cervical spine. TracCollar is an air powered neck traction collar which helps relieve downward pressure on cervical spine discs, thereby removing compressive forces which helps to reduce herniations, disc protrusions, bulges and ease the pain of pinched nerves and associated symptoms, which can cause the pain to radiate into the shoulder, arm and hand. By decreasing pressure, it also improves the blood flow to the neck, shoulders and arms, which can lead to reduced tension and promote healing, as well as relax muscles.
TracCollar is operated by 2 hand held inflation bulbs that are easy on the hand to pump - only 15 pumps to full traction. A great feature for those with hand arthritis! Each hand pump inflates one side of the collar and then both combined create an upward pressure on the head, providing traction and relieving pressure from compressed discs, pinched nerves, irritated joints and stiff muscles - a major cause of neck pain.
You are under complete control of neck traction, customizing the level of traction force through inflation and are able to precisely control the amount of traction for both the right and left side of the neck. This provides an advantage over other types of inflatable traction devices and allowing more or less traction to be applied to a specific side, which can be beneficial iwith different types of disc herniations, arthritic formations as well as accomodating scoliosis conditions.
The TracCollar is easy to use and provides a feeling of security, warmth, support and comfort. Just place the TracCollar neck traction collar around your neck, buckle closed, adjust snugly by fastening two velcro straps in the back and it's ready to use. Air can be controlled and released from the TracCollar by simply pressing the release button valve on each pump.
Forget electrical cords, different pieces to attach, no heavy and messy water bags that are tied to a door with pulleys, or uncomfortable halters commonly seen with many home neck traction products. The TracCollar is easy to use, comfortable, safe and effective. Recommended by medical doctors, physical therapists & chiropractors as an effective home treatment or for continued in office therapy in the comfort of your own home, office or when traveling.

1) Place the TracCollar on your neck with the opening in the back and the inflation bulbs in the front. Place your chin in the groove at the front of the collar.
2) Fasten and adjust the traction collar with the buckles and velcro closures. The collar should only rest against the front and back of the neck. The ends of collar may not necessarily touch, however, the bladders will still inflate the device evenly.
3) To use while sitting, your head should be in a level position facing forward. For use lying down, a pillow is recommended.
4) Inflate the TracCollar by pumping the bulbs until a light stretch is felt in your neck, adjusting the right and left sides by inflating the appropriate bulb to find the perfect level of neck traction. The bulbs should not be pumped more than 15 times on either side.
5) When finished, press the valves to release the air pressure and remove collar.
6) Not for recent sprains and/or strains, neck injury or acute conditions. If you feel light headed, dizzy, nauseous or experience any pain, discontinue use.
