Mmmm... lack of flexibility because discs?... I always thought it would be because short muscles of one side with a high tone or maybe because stiff joints.
I also thought that at least traditional procedures make a force to derotate and stretch the spine.. something difficult to imagine if lack of flexibility would be so irreversible.
