With the Hill Traction Control Unit, traction is created as the gliding top pulls against the controlled resistance of the traction unit. Traction force is regulated between 0 and 200 pounds and can be applied in several different forms from cervical (with the Hill Cervical Device / no pressure on the chin) to full lumbar-sacral traction using the traction harnesses. Therapists may treat with constant or intermittent traction. Drs. Sambursky and Railing use the Cervical traction for herniated discs in the cervical spine as well as for patients who have numbness or tingling in the arms and fingers as a result of a "Pinched Nerve" in the Neck!
The Anatomotor is also ideal for applying passive range of motion to arms, shoulders and legs. Available with optional heat, vibration and unique leg rollers which massage the calves and thighs to relax muscles and increase circulation.
