[Article in Russian]


The carrying ability of a spinal disc disturbed under axis load is found to be due to the displacement of a vertebra lying above it. The constant stretching of the extensively innervated soft tissues of the spine brings about a steady irritation process within the limits of the segmental part of the spinal cord and dysfunction of short profound muscles of the back.
