Which of the following is NOT CONTRAINDICATED with CERVICAL TRACTION? (not lumbar)

  • Why would third trimester pregnancy be a contraindication for CeRVICAL traction. The other comments said the answer was D. Lumbar tractions is a contraindication but I have not see anything about cervical traction and pregnancy. Can you please explain your thought process ?
