Back pain cannot be considered a mere symptom that has as its only function reference to relevant hidden disease. Back pain must be acknowledged as a disorder that requires description and assessment as carefully as any of the well-established clinical entities. This article outlines a clinically useful, descriptive 'morphology' or nosography of the various axial skeletal pains stated, and proposes methods for their classification and evaluation.
