Back pain is the commonest form of rheumatism and it is
estimated to affect between 65 per cent and 80 per cent
of populations sampled. The costs of back pain-related
medical care and disability compensation make it one of
society's most significant non-lethal medical conditions.
Whilst mortality is low, its morbidity is high,
inconvenience great, and economic burden massive. The
actual symptom of back pain is one of the commonest and
most perplexing encountered in medical practice. A proper
understanding of what it means is crucial for further
medical advance. However, the field of back pain research
probably has more experts than any other. Anybody who has
back pain will, as often as not, expound views on all
matters concerning causation and expectations. Indeed, it
is not for a lack of ideas that this field of
investigation has failed to make progress.
