Cervical Kyphosis

The average weight of a person head is between 3-4kg.

A kyphotic neck curve will have strong ligament contracture/deformity. This type of neck curve presentation commonly requires forces stronger than the weight of your head to effectively stretch the ligaments required for you to achieve a beneficial corrective change.

This should be performed in clinic under observation but don’t be afraid to try it. Patients with a kyphotic neck generally ‘love’ an effective stretch into cervical lordosis. In many cases, adding more weight during traction can be more comfortable than using less weight as it achieves more Cervical Lordosis. In other words – More Cervical Lordosis = More comfort in traction, and more benefits.

‘Non-weighted’ Denneroll use must still be performed at home in order to assist your in office spinal health care.
