Who here has had experiences with the Posture Pump for neck pain?

Im 22 years old. 3 months ago I pulled my neck while weightlifting and have had problems ever since. MRIs, xrays, and doctors all tell me that its "no big deal" except that the muscle spasms are causing me to lose my cervical curve, i have a straight neck. This is probably why after my injury, my neck cracks all the time now when I tilt it back, and I cannot turn my head to the right.

But I am in tremendous pain every day on the right side of my neck, and my upper back often is affected. I also twitch and jerk a lot, and a lot of times my right hand feels like a dying toy running out of battery and doesnt work right.I also feel very disoriented and weak at times, my legs giving out beneath me for no given reason, or my arms just randomly jerking out of place.

Im desperate for my curve back. These muscle spasms arent relaxing with PT, acupuncture, and relaxers, so I just have to try to focus on the curve and wish for the best. I want to dry out the postur epump and will purchase it for next day delivery tomorrow, as well as a cervical pillow. I am hoping that my age as well as my duration of injury are on my side. Anybody ever had luck with this specific traction unit?


  • I have a posture pump im about to sell on Ebay...

    I got it to late now I need disc replacement surgery..

    You should get an MRI first....
  • When I developed acute radiculopathy in the middle of the night (throbbing pain in my right hand!), I was desperate and used the posture pump. Nothing short of a miracle. Within a few pumps the pain started to drain away. I found lifting my arm helped even more. I was able to fall asleep, then awoke with the same symptom and the posture pump came to the rescue yet again. It wasn't a permanent solution but I could see how it did relieve the mechanical pressure on my spinal nerves.

    I have C4/C5, C5/C6 degenerative disc disease with compression of the nerve roots.

    Hope this is helpful. It's a for real product.
  • It helped me more then PT or Injections ect....
  • I have cervical problems. bulging disc, osteophytes, foraminal stenosis and mild canl stenosis, mostly at c5/c6. will a cervical collar with air pump help with sitting at a computer. i am hoping it will help with my posture
  • Any news on when M6 will be available in the good old USA. Seems like if the surgeries in Germany are so succussful FDA would move quicker. Pain is no way to live life and losing what your use to doing is defintely no fun. Seems the only way to get one is if your lucky enough to get into a clinical trial.
  • I also have Ceervicle isseues. Not quite as bad as you RDT but i have 2 bulging and one compressed disk. The only help ive found has been with SPAM they have made my life liveable again.
