The Best Neck Traction Devices

Portable and affordable, neck traction devices aim to make a big difference in neck pain in a fairly small package. Designed as a collar that fits around the neck, these small devices are often inflatable and adjustable, and they aim to relieve neck pain and support good posture by lifting and supporting the head away from the neck. Most come with clear instructions on how to use the device and gradually introduce it into your routine, but it’s always a good idea to check with your doctor first. If you’re interested in trying one yourself, we’ve pulled together five great options to get you started. When choosing, consider the device’s material, design, included extras, refund policy, and price.
