Pain in the cervical spine or neck is more common than ever, especially because of the poor posture when using smartphones and other modern mobile devices. It’s well known that good posture is better for your back, while bad posture stresses the cervical spine, and leads to early degeneration. So how do you alleviate cervical pain?
Treatment for Cervical Pain
Cervical pain can affect quality of life, and prevent you from doing the things you normally do. While neck pain can be alleviated with the use of home remedies such as hot showers or hot compress, this is often not sufficient for those with chronic pain and severe discomfort. More serious symptoms may require treatments such asAxial Linear Traction, or Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EEDTM).
Axial Linear Traction
Axial linear traction is a conventional treatment for cervical pain that involves the use of a device that helps to provide cervical support, and promote proper posture. However, it has the unwanted side-effect of straightening the normal cervical curve (lordotic curve), which can increase wear and tear on the intervertebral discs.
On the other hand, EED enhances the lordotic curve.
Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression
Cervical discomfort can be alleviated with the use of cervical decompression treatment using the Posture Pump with EED.This is a technique in which ellipsoidal air cells are released into the cervical and lumbar regions of the spine. The air cells continuously expand and contract during treatment, and they also hydrate the discs, helping to alleviate cervical pain. The ellipsoidal decompressionalso molds the normal curved shape of the spine.
While both treatments can alleviate cervical pain, EED actually improves the cervical curve, and enhances posture. Go online to www.posturepump.com for more information on the EED Posture Pump treatment, and other products designed to treat neck and back pain.
