I do hope it works for you, PALady is right the first day they will evaluate you, see what you can and can not do and what give you pain, range of motion and all that. They might try the traction the first day, it will all depend on how their evaluation goes. They might try hot and cold packs to or even ultra sound treatments, PT has all kinds of things they can do to get you on the mend!
Good Luck to You
