    This article discusses the need for prevention of disability resulting from persistent pain. The paper focuses on back pain as a way of exemplificating the issues. Although methods are not well developed, it is suggested that the information gained from clinical research with chronic pain patients forms the first step from which disability prevention programs might be constructed. In this paper, a discussion of the psychological principles that might be helpful in this endeavour is presented. Also, several recommendations are made for addressing the prevention of chronic pain-related disability. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
