CONTINUOUS TRACTION IN THE TREATMENT OF SPINAL CONDITIONS, NOTABLY SCOLIOSIS.

We do not offer these suggestions as completely curative in cases of scoliosis, but feel that this method does greatly decrease the ever burden-some problem which we have all experienced. We do feel that early, rapid cases could practically be strengthened by this method when in the transitional stage and should be fused if they fail to remain straight after traction, cast, brace and exercises have been used. We feel that otherwise hopeless cases can be kept from the scrap heap and be given honest and efficient help. As a time-saver to both surgeon and patient it is a winner, and as a help in obtaining improved hygiene as well as morale, it has no equal.
