DDS Cervitrac Cervical Traction Collar

The DDS Cervitrac is a comprehensive cervical traction device for treating neck pain. The patented Air Traction pneumatic collar may be worn while ambulating throughout the day or while lying in a supine position when attached to the removable stand. Treatment can be administered effectively and easily on the spot. By increasing the intervertebral disc space, pressure applied on the nerve root is relieved, eliminating pain while promoting recovery.
