On DVD#1, Boris explains in detail the causes lead to lumbalgia, disc herniation, as well as sciatica neuralgia. For example, in most cases of lumbalgia, the origin of the pain is so-called mechanical pain, or myofascial pain, which in time can become the main factor for the development of intervertebral disc herniation. It is a known fact that the above-mentioned pathologies are very difficult to treat by any means other than massage therapy. Therefore, Boris teaches not only how to eliminate myofascial pain, but also how to prevent intervertebral disc herniation.
