CERVICAL TRACTION SYSTEM, IN HOME NECK PAIN RELIEF
PATIENT-CONTROLLED PNEUMATIC TRACTION FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC CERVICAL PAIN
Pronex traction is designed to maintain the natural curve and alignment of the neck. During traction therapy PRONEX gently stretches neck muscles, realigns vertabreal discs, and reduces disc pressure on nerve root tissue. PRONEX traction helps "clamped" neck muscles to gently stretch and relax, enabling misaligned vertebrae (which are pressing down on spinal nerve root tissue) to return to their normal supportive position.
UNIQUE DESIGN PROVIDES ANATOMICALLY CORRECT TRACTION
Supports the natural curve of the cervical spine and provides an even distraction in the anterior and posterior cervical discs. Does not aggravate the temporomandibular joint. USER FRIENDLY AND WITHOUT RESTRAINTS
Portable, comfortable and convenient. No assembly, no weights, no cables, no springs or levers. It's restraint free. Encourages regular use by the patient at home, helping to break the chronic pain cycle. PROOF OF EFFECTIVENESS
Professonally conducted surveys prove that PRONEX relieves pain, promotes the healing process, and helps patients resume normal work and social activites. (A survey of more than 300 PRONEX users revealed the product's effectiveness in relieving chronic cervical pain.)

HOW PRONEX WORKS
PRONEX cradles the reclining patient's head and neck on 2 soft foam cushions. One cushion supports the occiput and the other rests against the upper trapezious. An air-inflated bellows between them provides up to 30lbs of continuously adjustable traction. As the bellows expands, it lifts the head upward and supports the cervical curve, maintaining an even distraction in the anterior and posterior cervical discs.
Lateral neck flexion of 15 and 22 degrees can be obtained during therapy utilizing the flexion wedge included. Patients have total control over the amount of traction applied. Squeezing an inflator bulb increases the pressure, a release knob gently reduces the pressure.
HOW TO USE PRONEX PNEUMATIC CERVICAL TRACTION
Place Pronex on a bed or other flat, firm surface where you can lie down comfortably on your back with knees bent at an angle of 45 degrees and with your feet flat on the bed. Place one or more pillows under your knees. This position has proven to be the most effective.
As you lie down, slowly lower the back of your neck until it is cradled in the U-shaped curve of the soft blue head piece. At the same time, gently spread the sides of PRONEX slightly apart to prevent folding or pinching of your ears. The concave underside of the unit should rest against your shoulders.
It's important to relax and take several slow, deep breaths, with emphasis on smooth exhalation. Allow time for your neck muscles to relax and settle into the concave shape of the head piece. This simple step ensures the most effective traction and keeps PRONEX comfortable and snugly in place.
Place the head strap over your forehead, just above your eyebrows, securing the head strap to the Velcro on both sides of the headpiece. Your head should be comfortably secured. Now you are ready for the next step.
Staying relaxed, squeeze the air bulb pump until you begin to feel a firm stretching sensation in you neck. Release air pressure by turning the screw valve on the bulb counter-clockwise to about three-quarters of a full turn.
Next, close the valve and re-inflate PRONEX until you again feel firm stretching in your neck. Once again release the air pressure. By now you know how easy it is to maintain this regular pattern.
Repeat inflating and releasing air pressure until you reach the level of traction that gives you the most relief and comfort.
Remain relaxed with full traction for about ten minutes or for the time prescribed by your doctor. Throughout the session, maintain even, relaxed breathing, exhaling slowly. During traction, release air pressure at lease twice during a 10 minutes session. Relax for a moment and then reinflate PRONEX until the prescribed period is up.
When your session is finished, release the air slowly and remove the head strap. Lie still for a moment as air empties from bellows. Gently lift your head, roll to one side and push yourself up to a sitting position.
Avoid rapid repetitive motions for at least 30 minutes after each traction session. Excessive or exaggerated movements such as looking straight up or down, or twisting your head left and right may increase muscle tension or stiffness. A feeling of warmth and relaxation are common after PRONEX therapy.
In special cases, physicians may prescribe that a patient's head and cervical spine be slightly elevated during supine traction. A flexion wedge is designed to provide such elevation with an upward tilt of 15 and 22 degrees. To use, the wedge is place under the PRONEX head cushion
"The Pronex is effective for treatment of pinched nerves or ruptured disks, because it decreases the pressure on the nerves and disks. This device is phenomenal. I've prescribed close to 1,000 of them in the past three years, and I 've had an 85% compliance rate. For many patients, using the Pronex eliminates the need for neck surgery."
—Neurologist, Bremerton, WA
"I have had a lot of success with this device, prescribing it for over 400 patients. Before deciding on surgery, particularly for elderly and high risk patients, I commonly prescribe 2X a day regimen for at least six weeks to determine if traction will relieve pain. In many cases it does. I get paid to operate, but this is a very good device that can help some patients avoid the need for surgery. "
— Neurosurgeon, Princeton, N.J.
"I am a strong believer in trying conservative measures before sending patients to surgery. In a case of traumatic cervical spine injury, the patient often ends up with secondary temporomandibular joint(TMJ) spasms. This is because mechanical action can affect the TM joint by aiming the joint toward the top of the head. But PRONEX is a good device. It stretches the neck without involving the TM joint. With PRONEX you get nice even traction."

Herniated Disks -
One Cause of Neck Pain
also called slipped disks, bulging disks, ruptured disks
Wear and tear weakens or flattens the fluid-filled pads, "discs", so they push against nerves, causing distress
Traction works to relieve compression of the disk, at the same time promoting more normal curvature of the spine. Symptoms are eased. The long-term aim is to provide enough relief to restore normal disk functioning.
