    Hi Paula,

    Welcome to the board. Apologies for missing your first post. Traction is still used for certain conditions, but I would think that type of pressure might not be compatible with certain conditions and could possibly do more harm than good. Whether or not a kyphotic condition would benefit from traction I just don't know. Is your kyphosis trauma related?

    What are your symptoms? Are the docs pushing for surgery?

    Bruce
