traction with a fused back

I had back fusion the first time in 1999 L4 S1, I again had spinal fusion 2010 on L5 S2 in july. I still have alot of nerve pain that runs down my right leg. My family doctor had me start physical therapy 3 weeks ago and this last week put me in traction?? I ended up in more pain than I was when i started. should they be putting me in traction?

Hi there!

Traction may be recommended depending on the issue. It would be inappropriate to comment on the situation without the relevant clinical details. You may like to discuss the issue with your treating doctor or seek a second opinion with an orthopedician.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
