Lumbar traction is used an applied for stretching force to the lumbar vertebrae by way of body weight, weights, and/or pulleys to distract individual joints of the lumbar spine.
Treatment for disc protrusions and is a common modality for treating patients with back and leg pain. The effectiveness and benefits of lumbar traction include: distraction to increase the intervertebral space, tensing of the posterior longitudinal vertebral ligament to exert centripetal force at the back of the joint and suction to draw the disc protrusion towards the center of the joint. Some other effects attributed to traction include widening of the intervertebral foramen and distraction of the apophyseal joints.
