Description

Poor posture, and mechanical strain from whiplash injuries contribute to a sustained forward head posture resulting in headaches, neck and TMJ pain and can lead to cervicobrachial neuralgia. Including the Apex Cervical Orthosis™ Premium in your treatment plan counteracts that detrimental position and helps achieve symptom relief. The contoured shape with wedge extension is designed to correct a diminished cervical lordosis while comfortably supporting the upper thoracic spine. This allows shoulders to drop, which lets chest and neck muscles stretch passively, assisting depth of inspiration and promoting relaxation.

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