The effect of torque on the causation of lumbar disc herniations is discussed. Attention is drawn to the range of rotation that exists in the lumbar spine. Traumatic torque is elucidated and two signs for the recognition of its direction are descriptionbed. A method of conservative and ambulant treatment known as 'counter torque suspension' is descriptionbed. A traction table, embodying these principles, is now being constructed.
