Re: Traction as conversative therapy

Hi - my PT prescribed to the try about 3 times and if it aggravates your condition where it takes more than an evening to bounce back and we aren't trying to do that, then we stop.

Traction made me really worse, no matter what weight they used. You have to try it a few times and decide if it is helping or not.

I think the head weighs about 8-10 lbs, so if you did 15 it was over the weight your neck is carrying - you need to work up to it to see if you benefit.
