A controlled trial of continuous lumbar traction in the treatment of back pain and sciatica.

Abstract

A controlled trial of continuous lumbar traction in the treatment of back pain and sciatica showed similar improvements in both the treated group (weighted traction) and the control group (simulated traction). The findings of this study question the justification of admitting patients with back pain into hospitals for purposes of traction alone.
