Dural signs and symptoms are very useful clinical diagnostic elements which you can detect in the history and the functional examination of the patient suffering from lumbar pain.
A patient suffering from a lumbar internal derangement frequently shows dural signs in the functional examination. Those dural signs are pathognomic for a disco-dural conflict.
Keep one important message in mind : one single positive test has no clinical meaning at all ; focus on the complete image : history, inspection and a cluster of positive and negative tests.
