He distinguished pain of the lower limb of “arthritic” origin, or “arthritic sciatica,” identified as hip pain, from pain of “nervous” origin or “nervous sciatica,” which was classified as “postica” (posterior) or “antica” (anterior). He accurately differentiated sciatic nerve pain from arthritis of the hip with a precise description of the clinical status and by indicating the relationship of pain to the sciatic nerve [1]: If the pain indicated by the patient’s finger runs from the foot to the sacrum, as competent anatomists we must evaluate this patient by tracing the precise course of the sciatic nerve.

More recently, however, this common-sense approach has been overshadowed by the ‘disk degeneration’ paradigm, which considers that some biological process related to genetics and disk nutrition can be held responsible for all aspects of disk pathology and pain. Mechanisms of disk injury, either by wear and tear (‘fatigue’) or by trauma, have been overlooked on the grounds that they represent an outmoded ‘injury model’, with some advocates of degeneration appearing to deny the possibility that intervertebral disks can be injured at all!
