Abstract

Aim. The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of a new, simple and cheap device of manual autotraction (MAT), in comparison with Natchev's autotraction system. Methods. Fifty-four patients, with lumbalgia or sciatalgia for more than 4 months and disc herniation or protrusion at computed tomography (CT) or nuclear magnetic resonance (NRM), have been selected, at random, in a randomized control trial. Patients have been treated by MAT or by Natchev's autotraction. Treatments efficacy has been assessed through the differences in visual analogic scale (VAS) for pain, and Backill scale for disability, before and after therapy (diffVAS and diffBi). The results of the 2 autotraction's devices have been compared in order to distinguish their differences. The results have been considered significant if p
