Re: Traction for Lower Back Pain
Definitely tell your therapist about the increase in pain you are experiencing after traction. The idea of therapy is to help you, not make things worse! And not every therapy works for every body.
I tried traction in therapy about 3 times, IIRC. While I don't recall it ever making me feel worse, it certainly didn't give me any lasting results that made me want to continue to pursue it. If you feel like it's making things worse for you, I'd say it's highly probable that it is!
Sounds like it may not be the right thing for your body and you should definitely speak with your therapist about exploring other options.
Best of luck to you!
