Abstract

Previous studies have shown the potential for intervertebral disc tissue regeneration is very limited. While in vivo and in vitro studies have shown that traction can restore disc height and internal pressure, in many clinical studies it was shown that axial mechanical traction for the treatment of low back pain is ineffective.
