The problem is first examined from the standpoint of selection between surgical and conservative treatment. The authors list the prerequisites for conservative treatment and report the results obtained in 37 patients with full training, supporting analgesic physical therapy, and kinesitherapy. In brief the authors report that the results depend on correct aetiological diagnosis reached in advance, and then on adequate kinesitherapeutic treatment, which must be continued for a long time by the patient at home, with association of general rules to be observed in day-to-day activities and in accordance with the functional possibilities of the spinal column.
