I have C4-C5-C6 disk protrusions with back, shoulder pain and arm numbness for 3-4 months.
Recently I read the following article:
Results of halter cervical traction for the treatment of
cervical radiculopathy: retrospective review of 81
Department of Neurosurgery, University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, Illinois; and
Department of Neurosurgery, University of Minnesota, Duluth, Minnesota
The article shows a 75% success rate on the study with 81 cases.
Does anyone has experience with traction therapy.
I will sit down with neurology soon to tell him I want to go to traction therapy supervised by a therapist.
Thank you for any comments-information.
