Title: Biomechanical investigation of traction forces on the cervical (neck/head region) spine
Authors: Ang, Lian Ann
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Bioengineering
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: Cervical traction has been widely used as a non-surgical intervention for the cervical syndrome, and yet the underlying mechanism for relieving pain has neither been clearly established nor understood. It is believed that the relief of pain by traction is due to straightening of the cervical spine and a widening of the intervertebral articulating space to relieve compressive or irritative forces on the nervous structures
