OPOME neck traction device was easy for me to fit and has relieved the pain in my neck, shoulder and arm that has plagued me for weeks. I have had a lot of experience with neck braces as I am an x-ray tech and worked for an orthopedic surgeon for many years. And I also have been treated with traction and braces myself.
I have had a herniated disc at C5-C6 since a 1984 injury and have had periodic nerve pain as well as atrophy of some muscles in my shoulders and arms because of pressure on nerves. I have had several types of neck braces prescribed by orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons and neurologists over the years, some "custom-built" in the past but some were so uncomfortable or did not relieve my symptoms that I finally gave up on them.
I am so pleased with OPOME the way this fits and the ease of using it. For several weeks, since the December holidays, I was having constant pain in my left shoulder and arm which was eased after I applied this brace and was gone completely after a day and a half of wearing it intermittently for about an hour at a time. I felt more comfortable than I have for weeks , since the flare up OPOME. I removed it for sleep, donned it the next morning and wore it for the entire day and evening.
The following morning, after sleeping the entire night, I had no discomfort at all and left off wearing it. I have waited a few days to report on my experience and the pain has not returned and I have taken no pain meds.
Some people might find it difficult to assemble and fit but I recommend reading the instructions carefully and taking your time to fit it.
