Dr Ho's Neck Comforter is a comfortable, easy-to-use neck traction device. Designed to allow you to control the traction level you want in response to your pain level, you can use the Neck Comforter as a simple travel pillow, or to stretch and relax neck muscles. The Air Lock Bead allows you to decide if you want to use just two, or all three air bladders of the Neck Comforter. Use it on the go, or in the comfort of your own home.
The average head weighs 10-12 lbs and the neck and shoulder muscles work hard to hold it up. The constant use of those muscles combined with things such as daily work, poor posture, physical or emotional stress, and poor sleeping habits can result in neck muscles to tighten and become stiff. This can also cause back pain and headaches, as well as inflamed joints, nerve damage, herniated discs*, and repetitive strain injuries if not dealt with.
*Also known as a bulging, ruptured, or slipped disc. As we age, the discs in our spine become weaker and therefore more susceptible to pressure. When a disc moves, it can push against your nerves and result in pain or numbness. Dr Ho’s Neck Comforter helps to reduce the pressure and decompress spinal discs.
How does it work?
Dr. Ho’s Neck Comforter inflates with air using a high efficiency hand pump. When it is partially inflated, it provides neck support. When it’s fully inflated, it supports the weight of the head to help reduce stress on the neck and shoulders. When it’s more inflated, the Neck Comforter will gently stretch the neck and shoulder muscles while supporting good posture, which reduces stress on those muscles. The pressure is adjustable so you can set the stretching to your personal comfort level.
Start by putting the Neck Comforter around your neck and fasten the adjustable Velcro straps. Make sure the air release valve is firmly closed and then use the pump to inflate with air. Once it’s filled as you would like it, squeeze and push up the Air Lock Bead (above the air valve) to ensure no air gets out. It may look simple but it is powerful and effective. Start off with a gentle stretch and then as your neck and shoulders begin to relax, increase the stretch as much as you’re comfortable with.
Dr Ho’s Neck Comforter is battery free and portable, so it can be used anywhere and as often as you need.

If you’re unsure if you should use Dr Ho’s Neck Comforter or experience pain while using, consult a doctor.
Neck and shoulder tension isn’t always caused by things like bad posture or repetitive physical work. It can also be the result of mental or emotional stress, which can cause your body to tense up and may also lead to insomnia. Sometimes the stresses of life are unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean you should suffer from it. Dr Ho’s Neck Comforter won’t necessarily make your life stress-free, but it will help to reduce the tension and allow you to relax.
By not going to a chiropractor, you’ll be saving time and money! Dr. Ho’s Neck Comforter will be there when you need it, day or night.
