I am 27 years old and have had for about 2-3 years now, a herniated disc in the C5, C6 area of my spine that doesn't really pain but rather causes tension/pulsation in my left shoulder blade and some weakness in the neck area. There is also some tingling going down my left arm into the fingers. I wanted to find out the difference between the below two treatments please. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each? What is a "hydrator" versus a "traction" device? Is there a real difference? Should I get both and use in conjunction? Any experience with these or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
