thanks

  • I'm not sure what you mean by a harness. If you are talking about traction, I used a device that hung from a door frame, hooked under your chin, with weights on it to provide traction. I did this in physical therapy. Later on I was provided with a home traction unit, sorry but I can't remember the name of it. This was used while laying flat, and it was fitted to my head. There was a hand pump that when pumped up would stretch my neck. This did provide some relief. Do a search for home traction devices and it should give you more details. However, please please please don't do traction without speaking with your doctor first and ensuring that you know how to correctly use it.

    Hope this helps.

  • yes. i have a home traction unit, as Cindy described. It is made by Saunders and requires a doctor's prescription to obtain. It does help, in my opinion, for those who need some decompression of the nerves.
