Thanks for writing to us.
If the traction has provided only a short term relief, then a surgical treatment should be considered after an MRI scan to assess the severity of the problem.

Thanks for posting your query.
For your disc problem conservative treatment in form of traction seems to be effective. It reduces the pressure over nerve roots by bulging disc. To avoid to repeating this I suggest you-
* avoid lifting heavy weights
* avoid forward bending activities
Physiotherapy to strengthen the back muscles. Physiotherapy has to be done only after the acute pain has subsided.
Hope this will helps you. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
