Cox® Isotonic Neck Exerciser - Exclusively from DEE CEE Labs
Designed by Dr. James Cox over 20 years ago to complement Cox® Technic care of cervical spine conditions (especially because of research discussing that muscles degenerate just like spinal elements do!), the Cox® Isotonic Neck Exerciser is simple yet effective for patients to learn and do at home.
Fits easily in a door jamb to secure the unit
8 ranges of motion are attainable
Starting at just taut of the rubber tubing, a patient starts with as many repetitions of motion away from the tubing's hold in the door jamb. The patient may only do one rep on day one. That's fine! Day two may see more reps. The patient builds up to doing 15 repetitions in each of 8 directions. Once there, the patient is told to move back 3" to create more tension on the tubing and start over. That first day may only allow 1 rep in each direction. Not a problem! The patient again builds up to 15 reps in each direction, then steps back another 3" and builds to 15 reps in each direction. By this point, the patient's neck muscles are in good shape. Encourage the patient to keep doing the neck exercises to keep the neck muscles strong and able to support the head.
