Tractioning at home will help return the natural 40-degree curve in your neck. This helps balance the weight of your skull on your spine and evenly distributes the load across the curve.

Putting ice on your injury will reduce the swelling and help aid in the healing process. We do not suggest using heat due to the chance it may increase inflammation. We recommend 20 minutes of ice as often as every 2 hours.

We recommend several supplements for joint and spinal health like Glucosamine Sulfate, Collagen, Chondro-flx, and Fish Oil. These all help with rebuilding and restoring joint health and increasing lubrication.
