Halo gravity traction

Halo gravity traction - Is a brain based approach always the best way forward? It would be fair to say that a treatment intervention like this, is not primarily focussed on or targeted towards driving change in the body by correcting the governing systems of or within the body.

In severe cases of scoliosis, respiratory problems can arise when the ribs are collapsing on to the lungs. The halo is a ring device that is held in place on the skull using several pins. Once the ring is attached, traction is immediately applied through the halo & gradually increased. Headache is a common initial side effect of halo traction, though a reduction in back pain, improved respiratory function & improved appetite are all also commonly reported. 
Nothing happens randomly or by accident in the body. There is always, always, ALWAYS a reason for everything. The medical, or for that matter any other paradigm in which you’re seeking treatment, mightn’t understand the reason or be capable of explaining the ‘why’, but the reason will exist nonetheless. To my mind, working with the governing systems of the body & correcting that which is driving dysfunction is almost invariably going to be the smartest & the best way to approach a resolution of symptoms. An intervention such as Halo traction may well bring about some short term relief, but if the signals in the nervous system that are driving the spinal column to deform remain the same, it would stand to reason that any improvements would regress over time. If a person is in severe pain, is struggling to breathe or eat as a result of a spine that is steadily collapsing under the force of gravity, then interventions such as these may well be a necessary & intelligent component of any forward thinking treatment plan.
