Belts, Traction

Definition : Belts designed to provide traction to the lower spine, including the lumbar and pelvic areas, by using force from an external traction unit. These devices typically consist of a padded belt (e.g., cotton, vinyl) that is placed around the waist; the belt has one or more straps with rings at the end that permit its attachment to the cable of an external traction unit that usually includes a pulley and a set of weights. Some belts include additional rings for attachment to a spreader bar. Portable devices that use hydraulic force applied and controlled by a handheld pump with a pressure-relief valve are also available. Traction belts are used mainly for relief of low back pain and to maintain normal alignment of the vertebrae.

Entry Terms : "Belts, Traction, Pelvic" , "Traction Belts"
