pillow/cradle to relieve occipital neuralgia
I saw in a catalog a device to lay on, that put pressure on the occipital area, to treat and relieve occipital neuralgia pain. It wasn't a pillow to sleep on, it was similar to what a physical therapist does with finger pressure, to be used for a short time. Can anyone help me come up with a name for this "thingie" LOL. Of course, now I can't find the catalog to order it. I have been suffering from severe occipital pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and constant muscle spasms. I'm about at my wits end, and wanted to give this a try. I've googled every combination of words I can come up with. The closest I can get are traction devices, but it wasn't traction. Help! My pain is a 10 out of 10 for the past 2 weeks. I'm desperate!

Hi LLWB!

I was interested in reading your post because I have been suffering from occipital neuralgia for more than a decade and have yet to find anything that has really helped. I did a little research and the link below comes closest to what I think you're talking about:

Is this the cradle thing you were referring to?
