Apex Cervical Orthosis Premium with Heat:
So many daily activities affect our posture, placing your head and neck in a detrimental forward head position. This can be attributed to looking down at handheld devices, sleeping with your head elevated excessively, poor posture, or an acute injury such as whiplash. Using the Apex Premium with Heat daily, under the direction of a health care professional, counteracts forward head posture to help relieve headaches and neck pain associated with whiplash injury, tech neck, and other neck injuries. It provides firm support to place the neck in a proper position to help reestablish a proper cervical curve that has been diminished as a result of forward head posture. The unique wedge extension provides support to the upper thoracic spine for comfort and allows the shoulders to drop, stretching the chest and neck muscles. Opening the chest in this manner promotes breathing and facilitates relaxation. The provided MicroBeads Moist Heat Pack sits in a channel at the apex of the wedge, ensuring targeted moist heat therapy to the cervical tissue. Studies indicate increasing the temperature of the tissue to be stretched improves elasticity of muscles and ligaments, extending range of motion. Made with a plush fabric cover, the MicroBeads Moist Heat Pack is soft to the touch and gentle on the skin. The microbeads adsorb moisture from the air and release it when heated. To warm up the heat pack, simply place the pack in the microwave for 10 seconds, then at 5 second intervals until the desired temperature is reached. The reusable pack will maintain therapeutic temperature for about 20 minutes. The MicroBeads are scent and drug free, and do not support the growth of bacteria or contain common allergens like herbal or grain-based packs. The Apex Cervical Orthosis Premium with Heat is an effective tool to assist the health care professional in restoring a patient's proper cervical lordosis. It is latex free and is proudly made in the USA. To clean, simply use a damp towel and mild soap, if necessary, to spot clean.
