I injured my lower back last week by bending over without supporting my back while carrying a heavy item.
The result was that I spent the next 5 days on my back icing the area.
I now have a numb left foot and sore cocxyx.
Chiropractic adjustments helped to give me motion and ease pain.
Now the chiro is recommending traction to bring my lumbar spine back closer to a normal curve.
He says that could alleviate pressure on the nerve from L-5 impingement with some disc bulging.
Have any of you gotten relief from traction for sciatica?
