Neck Traction

Neck stretching is a common practice amongst some African countries, so I’m a bit surprised to see an apparatus for the Western part of the world that appears to do just that.  In actually, it’s a Neck Traction device that uses a small hand driven pump to increase or decrease the level of support and as a result stretches the neck.  Supposedly, this helps reduce pain by ‘releasing neck pressure caused by pinched nerves’.  Honestly, the only thing I see this thing doing is make you look more retarded than a person wearing a neck brace or a dog with a lamp shade on its head.
