for a 54 year old woman who's 52kg or 115lbs, what weight is suitable for neck traction and what weight for lumbar traction?

Weight not a factor: The issue is not the traction but the cause of the problem to start with. Neck and back spondylosis is a result of ligament damage and prolotherapy is the cure. Visit www.Getprolo.Com or www.Aaomed.Org for information and to find a doctor. To help you.
