[Truncated] Non-specific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) has been widely documented as a major health problem in industrialised countries with extensive economic and personal costs. Numerous studies have been completed documenting the loss of quality of life due to this problem. One of the methods used extensively in previous decades to treat NSCLBP is lumbar traction. A comprehensive study of the efficacy of a home based lumbar traction unit has not been fully investigated in the ongoing management of chronic low back pain (CLBP).
