Pelvic traction is a therapy program designed to relieve pain in the lower back, hips and legs normally associated with low back disorders.
Traction refers to the set of mechanisms for strengthening broken bones, immobilisation or relieving pressure on the skeletal system. They are used to treat fractures, dislocations and long-duration muscles spasms, and to prevent or correct deformities. Traction can either be short-term-as at an accident scene or long-term- when it is used in a hospital setting. Dyna Tractions are designed to provide utmost immobilisation, stability, to apply force in directions not otherwise possible and to avoid common problems that patients meet with ordinary tractions.
This Pelvic Traction Kit is delivered as a complete package including:
A pelvic belt made of a strong yet comfortable material
Available in Small, Medium, Large and X-Large sizes.
Size Available Circumference of the Hip
Directions for use
To use the traction, first wear the pelvic belt around your hips.
Ensure that the belt is not too high or on the waist as the pull of the weight back has to be on the pelvis.
The belt has long straps on both sides which will attach to the weight bag via a spreader bar and a rope and pulley system.
The physician will specify the weight to be used and frequency of the traction.
Usually the traction has to be applied for a few days. You should get out of the traction only to go to the bathroom. And make sure that the oval shaped opening comes exactly in the patellar region.
Fasten the hook and loo closures just above and below the patella and then fasten the remaining hook and loop closures.
