The Y-Axis Traction Strap corrects “kinks” in the epi-pia collagen network.
The cartilage and collagen of the joint capsules are shortened and strengthened on the acute angle side of the deviations, making correction difficult unless stretching and time-dependent procedures are used.
Uses & Benefits:
- Y-Axis Traction stretching and adjusting
- Used ONLY on warmed up spine—increases oxygenation level
Fits comfortably around the head from occiput to the frontal bone with a removable chin strap for those with heads that slip-through strap. The strap may be used without the chin strap for patients with TMJ problems by securing the metal ring close to the frontal bone.
Replacement chin straps also available.
It is important to note that doctors use the Y-axis strap for traction when a patient is experiencing it for the first time. The patient then should work up to a full Y-axis strap adjustment.
