Use of spinal traction in the treatment of neck and back conditions.

Abstract:

:Spinal traction is a time-honored method for the treatment of disc protrusion, degenerative disc disease, and joint dysfunction. Effective treatment is not as easy or as simple to administer as it may appear. Many variations of technique exist, some of questionable value. It must be emphasized that spinal traction is only a part of the total management-treatment regimen, which includes other forms of physical therapy. Without a total management program, spinal traction, like many other empiric methods, has little chance of long-range benefit. Consequently, physicians prescribing spinal traction must be prepared to apply proved diagnostic methods and other treatment methods.

  • Prevention of sciatic nerve entrapment in trochanteric wiring following total hip arthroplasty.

    abstract::Sciatic nerve entrapment secondary to trochanteric wiring is a rare but serious complication following total hip arthroplasty (THA) in which the transtrochanteric approach has been used. To eliminate this risk, the authors modified the Charnley drill-and-wire-guide forceps for the femur, an instrument that facilitates...
