Cervical And Pelvic Traction Quiz: Test!

How much do you know about cervical and pelvic traction? Placing a stretch on the spine divides the vertebrae and eases direct nerve pressure and stress on the vertebral discs. Cervical traction is a regular non-surgical treatment for a herniated disc in the neck that relieves pain by opening the cervical foramen to lessen pressure on compressed nerve roots.
