The methodology is based on 3 major orthopedic principles:
- Relaxing the spine together with all the muscles of the body to avoid painful muscle tightness during the next step.
- Extension is performed with maximum traction that patient tolerats well, and that in anesthetic position. This posе in 95% of cases is on patient’s back with bent legs /William’s position or fetal position/.
- After the extension to ensure the immobilization in the same position within 2-3 weeks. Thus nerve tissue elements in the spine are released from compression, begin to function normally and the healing process is faster compared to treatment, which includes many procedures or medications without correcting the disk defect.
