Third video of PEDro Advanced Search for the “You Ask #PEDroAnswers” campaign

Each month in 2021 we will share short videos illustrating how to use the PEDro Advanced Search to find the best research to answer clinical questions submitted by PEDro users.

The third question to be answered is “In people with a cervical disc herniation, does computerised traction reduce pain more than exercise therapy?”

The Search terms are:

  • “mechanical traction” (Abstract & Title)
  • head or neck (Body Part).

PEDro acknowledges the contributions of: Ana Helena Salles from Faculdade de Ciências Médicas de Minas Gerais, Brazil who translated and recorded the Portuguese version; and, Sébastien Matéo and Matthieu Guémann from the Société Française de Physiothérapie who translated and recorded the French version.
