Many Chiropractors and Physical Therapists use differing variations of head weighting. Therefore, we do not recommend any specific methodology. We would suggest reviewing the study on head weighting that is available on our website. Just click HERE to download the "Clinical Proof" PDF or click HERE to view "Physical Therapy Protocol" PDF.
In consideration of the vast spectrum of people with cervical deficiencies, each patient has to be evaluated individually taking into consideration his or her physical stature.
Like any muscle strengthening program, starting with lighter weight is advisable. New patients should not wear the Halo Posture for more than five minutes.
If the patient does not complain of any immediate and sudden pain, then the patient should use it at home as directed.
Initial use for patients should not exceed 5 minutes a day for a week. The time for daily use should be increased to 10 minutes for 2-3 weeks and then 15 minutes for another 2-3 weeks. Activation of proprioceptors is encouraged by having the patient sit on a balance ball, stand, or walk while keeping their jaw-line parallel to the floor while wearing the Halo.
If your planning to use the Halo as a neck rehabilitative tool, follow the basic instructions on the package and start with no more than a couple minutes of use per day. Again, starting the patient with lighter weight is advised.
Again, only you "The Health Care Professional" can decide the best and safest course of rehabilitation for a particular patient.
