Description

Many daily activities contribute to poor posture, notably a forward head position with a reduced cervical lordosis. The Apex Cervical Orthosis is an inexpensive and convenient tool clinicians may include in their treatment plan to help restore normal cervical lordosis and promote good posture.

Its patent pending design adapts to needs of patients with acute injuries such as whiplash, or those with chronic pain due to prolonged use of handheld devices. Height adjusts to fit smaller patients or those requiring lower level initially by completing the cuts on scored lines. These sections can be replaced as treatment progresses. The gentle firmness accommodates patients that prefer a softer treatment and have a lower pain threshold.

Note: Product must be used under the supervision of a health care professional
