I am having spondylisis problem for the past 4 years. L7 vertebra suffered much wear and tear. Ortho doctor advising me traction. Any better suggestions.

Dear there is no l7 vertebrae. May be your doc has told you for l5. As lumbar has only l1-l5 vertebrae. Traction is good for this and strength exercises.
