The Neck Hammock

Stretch Your Neck

Dr. Steve Sudell created The Neck Hammock to complement cervical traction treatment you might get at physical therapy—and Steve knows, because he has a doctorate in physical therapy. The soft device cradles your head and gently stretches neck muscles. Those of us who work at desks and spend a lot of time typing (and texting) can benefit from opening up this area that often gets compressed, which can lead to aches and pains. But even if you don’t have any neck discomfort, The Neck Hammock is a comfortable way to relax and Zen out for a few minutes. The device is easy to set up and it hangs from a doorknob or railing. It's adjustable and folds up compactly to take with you on the go, so you can stretch out that post-travel stiffness. Steve recommends listening to your body when using The Neck Hammock. How high you hang it—and how long you use it—is entirely up to you. Start with a 10 minute session and see how good you can feel.

Quick Questions

Can The Neck Hammock replace physical therapy?

While The Neck Hammock achieves many of the same benefits of physical and massage therapy, it is not meant to replace these modalities. The Neck Hammock is meant to be a complement to these therapies and can be used every day to help relieve pain and protect against future injury.

Can anyone use The Neck Hammock?

The Neck Hammock is ideal for office workers, students, athletes, business travelers, drivers, or anyone who sits for extended periods of time.

Do not use The Neck Hammock if you have an acute cervical injury, spinal instability, spinal hypermobility, neck tumors, rheumatoid arthritis, osteomyelitis, or are under the age of 16.

What’s the best way to use The Neck Hammock?

Place the middle pad right under the base of the skull (this is great for people who sit all day long or text a lot and are always looking down), then move the middle pad closer to the middle of the neck. This will help restore the natural "c-curve". See full instructions on how to set up the device.

How far should the top of your head be from the wall/door that The Neck Hammock is attached to? Should you keep your head still while using it or gently nod and shake your head at the start in order to relax your neck?

This is not an exact number, much of it depends on how it feels for you. The objective is to feel a comfortable, gradual stretch. Ideally, it is recommended that The Neck Hammock be approximately 2-4" off of the floor. If you desire a more aggressive stretch, then have the hammock higher off the ground.

If desired, move your head around for the first 30 seconds to 1 minute. It's a great idea to turn your muscles on so they can turn off easier.
