This study critically reviewed current conceptualiastions of occupational disability resulting from low back pain (LBP).
It proposes a new classification system for back pain built on a phase-model of disability.
The goal was to develop a classification system that overcomes the shortcomings of existing classification schemes and is useful for interdisciplinary research, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.
Attempts to study aid prevent disability resulting from LBP have been hampered by the uptake of inadequate classifications of LBP.
Current classifications of LBP were critically reviewed, and criteria for a useful classification system are described.
