1. The simple surgical procedure described relieves sciatic pain in spines which show no bone pathology by x-ray.

2. Contracted iliotibial bands and fasciae exert pulls on the pelvic bones, resulting in bad posture. [SEE TABLE 1 IN SOURCE PDF.]

3. One more diagnostic sign has been added to our present knowledge of low-back disabilities, which should be helpful in clearing up another group of lame backs that have not responded well to other treatment.
