Re: Probs after using cervical home traction unit
Thx for responding SKZ. The traction unit is a Saunders cervical Hometrac deluxe. It seems like a new unit. I have not got any instructions from the Dr. of yet. I've been on other ones before at P/T not really liking them, but desparate times here. I tried to get the same perssure...not too much. I pumped in 3lbs of traction only, but the scale goes to 50lbs. What really bothers me, are things I use to do , like screwiing in a few drywall screws to hang a picture in the house and my neck, arms would go thru these spasms. Therefore I have to be very careful in what I do, which is next to nothing anymore. Only thing I've been told is , " you have alot going on " since I have low back probs where Im looking at a 2 level fusion . To me, my neck is jacked up somehow , where they're not seeing the root cause. I think Im done with the traction unit, my girlfriend said my facial color was yellow/ green the whole day. I felt like going into ER, but instead took all the meds I had available to me. One thing is, this Sanders unit is very nice & smooth and if traction helps people, this home unit is pretty slick. Just not for me I guess.
