German term or phrase: axialer Zug
Entry describing images of spine before and after treatment.
"Reposition= axialer Zug + Hypomochlion"

I'm guessing something like "axial traction"??
Thanks in advance

axial tension
Explanation:
... as opposed to "axial compression" (axialer Druck).

See examples in a spine context:

"METHODS
Five fresh human cadaveric cervical spines (C2-T1) were harvested and radiographed to exclude those with osteopenia. The spines were mounted in a programmable testing apparatus and tested in flexion and extension. Four sequential spine conditions were studied: harvested (H), SG, SGAP, and SGPP. Following harvested testing, a force sensing strut-graft (FSSG) was placed in the corpectomy. The transducer measured ***axial tension*** / compression (+/- 225N), flexion / extension and lateral bending moments (5.7Nm), and axial torsion (10Nm); channel resolution was 0.5% full scale. After insertion, the FSSG length was adjusted to register a pre-load of 20N. The SGAP spine used an Orion anterior cervical plate (Sofamor Danek Group) attached to C3 and C7. For the SGPP spine, two Axis plates (Sofamor Danek Group) were attached to the lateral masses of C3 through C7. Output from the FSSG was normalized to the applied + pre-load and compared at the end limits of motion. Paired t-tests were used to determine changes in the level of SG load with or without hardware. Motion data of the individual spinal segments, operated region, and total construct were measured with our 3-D multi-body tracking system [Vossel et al., 1998] and combined with the loading data to calculate stiffness properties. Motion data was normalized to the harvested spine and compared using paired t-tests (p<0.05). Additional measurements included applied load and transferred loads."

Anne may have a point here, too - "axial tension" is a state (in the sense of "Zugbelastung/Zugbeanspruchung") while "axial traction" is a process/procedure.

Happy Birthday from me, too! It looks as if Anne and Siegfried (and you!) are right indeed.
