Natural Neck Pain Relief using the Neckpro exercise device created by Dr. Larry Gilliam 12 years
Eliminate Back or Neck Pain Naturally with this
amazing device.The Neckpro Overdoor Cervical Traction Device was
invented in 2000 due to a personal sports injury...The
inventor, Dr. Larry Gilliam is a board certified emergency medical practitioner in Tennessee. He is also a Senior
Olympics Gold Medalist in track and field and tennis and spinal injuries caused from his physical activities led
him to create an improved overdoor traction unit.
"Dear Dr. Gilliam,I'd like to send you an
enthusiastic testimonial regarding the at-home NeckPro. I have been in chiropractic practice for 16
years and have dispensed 100's of over-the-door water and weight bag units with few results, save the
complaints of difficulty of use and "can't I hurt myself with that?". I have given out 8 NeckPros in
the past 4 months and the results, as well as compliance, has been astounding. No more long winded, 15
minute demonstrations and admonitions to get help when using it. It's proven invaluable for geriatric
patients for which other devices were untenable, and it actually offers substantial relief after office
treatments end. Thank you so much for your well thought out product!! Jay Kennedy"
The Neckpro® over-door traction device, developed by
Larry Gilliam, MD, eliminates the bag of water or weights and the trial and error method of traction therapy
offered by conventional home over-door traction systems. By using a precision compression spring coupled with a
patented rope ratchet, the NECKpro delivers a more precise amount of cervical traction
Each audible “click” of the ratchet signals an
approximate 1 lb. increase in the tension being applied; i.e., 1 click equals 1 lb., 2 clicks equals 2 lbs. and so
on. This allows the patient to monitor and track these increases for maximum benefit during each therapy session.
Once the patient has reached the desire level of traction or clicks, simply release the rope and relax for the
duration of each therapy session.
The ratchet locks automatically, maintaining the
The high quality head halter is comfortable and easy to apply. The quick release straps on the halter make
exiting the device at the end of a therapy session very simple, even under high levels of traction. The NECKpro is
simple, easy, effective and portable. It comes completely assembled, ready to use right out of the box and is the
perfect travel companion. “Relief is just a click away”, so don’t be without one at home or on the road.
Advantages of Using NeckPro
* Simple, easy, effective, portable & affordable
* No assembly required. No cumbersome weights, waterbags or pulleys
* Most user-friendly cervical traction unit available
* Head and neck are not locked in one position but remain free allowing
rotation and extension concurrent with traction to achieve maximum mobility and relaxation. The ratcheting
mechanism enables incremental adjustment of the tension without having to dismantle and reassemble
* Tension is directed unilinear and is referenced by an audible signal or clicking sound of the ratchet
mechanism. Benefits of Using NeckPro * Promotes relaxation
* Reduces stress and tension * Reduces, if not eliminates, the need for costly pain medication * Aids in
returning to normal sleeping habits
* Reduces the effects of aging on the spine due to gravity * Aids in returning normal neck mobility, flexibility
and range of motion * May postpone or eliminate surgical intervention for cervical disc disease
* Aids in returning the spine to its anatomical posture In summary, for those individuals who have no medical
condition to prevent its use and have the noted conditions that will benefit from cervical traction, the NeckPro
will provide these positive realities.
Mount metal door bracket over top center of
door. Engage release tab on bracket and lower harness for applying to head and neck. Sit in chair with your back firmly against back of chair, and the chair pushed back against
Assume position of comfort and keep same position in
order to maintain static tension traction. Apply harness to back of head and chin. For comfort, place chinstrap so
that it embraces the for ward structure of the chin in a cupping or concave manner.
Pull hook and loop strap forward and attach to
patches on both sides of the chinstrap. Ensure a firm grip to back of head and neck. Tighten harness by pulling
down on white cord.
Ease up on cord after each click to sense the
increased tension/traction. When you sense the first tug or lift, begin counting the clicks. Each click equals an
approximate one pound increase in traction or tension, up to approximately 20 pounds maximum. Release/remove
DO NOT release harness by reaching up to tab on
ratchet, but rather, grasp forward end of hook and loop straps, pull back and up behind head for ease of removal.
Recommended regimen 5-10 pounds (clicks) of tension for 10 minutes a.m. and p.m. until you obtain therapeutic pain
relief and then as needed.

Dear Friend: After having an MRI and finding that I had a deteriorating disk in my neck and also a pinched
nerve, I was told by my orthopedist that surgery was the next step. He suggested a block and tackle device, but I
was unable to find one. So, I purchased a NeckPro at the drugstore to see if I could obtain any relief from the
pain, numbness and loss of strength I was having in my arm and hand. After two uses of the NeckPro for 15 minutes
each, I began seeing positive results. Two weeks later, the pain and numbness were gone and the strength was
beginning to return to my arm and hand. I would highly recommend the NECK-PRO to anyone with neck and shoulder
problems before opting for surgery or any kind of invasive procedure.

I would like to personally thank you for the NeckPro. Although I am fortunate not to have anatomic vertebral
pathology, tension headaches are an unfortunate reality. With occasional use of the NeckPro for as little as 5 or
10 minutes, the relief of tension headaches is now a reality. Good luck with marketing your new invention. When the
word gets out, they will sell themselves.

Dear Dr. Gilliam: I am writing to congratulate you for developing the therapeutic cervical traction device. I
also wanted you to know how much your NeckPro helped me to stay active in doing volunteer work and playing sports.
At age 65, I started playing volleyball and other sports in the Senior Games. I found that some sports irritated my
arthritic neck, and the only way I could get relief would be to apply some form of traction. After going through
therapy at a local hospital several times, I purchased a traction device that applied traction by filling a bag
with water and hanging over a door. This was not very efficient; as a set amount of water did not supply the exact
amount of traction I needed on any given day. With the NeckPro, I can quickly and easily apply the right amount of
traction to get the relief I need. Now at age 79, I feel confident that I will be able to continue participating in
Senior Games. With the help of the NeckPro, I believe I will be able to play table tennis, badminton and swim for
many more years. If I become aware of anyone that experiences the same cervical problems that I do, I will
certainly recommend that they try the NeckPro to keep them active.
Sincerely, Gene Blaes
Just over a year ago I fell and compressed four vertebrae in my back. I was visiting a chiropractor four and
five times a week to relieve the pain. I also experienced extreme sensitivity in my shoulder and back and numbness
in my hands and feet. I had some trouble returning to work because clothing caused pain in my shoulder and back. I
purchased your NeckPro and began using it every other day for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. I was able to reduce my
chiropractor visits to once a week within three months and stopped taking pain medicine for my shoulder and back. I
was able to return to work soon after with only mild problems with sensitivity. I am still working with my
chiropractor and using the NeckPro as I need it. I want to thank you for the NeckPro and all it has to help me
through this experience.
