(EN) – Glossary of common ‘back pain’ terms | Paul Manley


Below is an illustrated glossary of commonly used back pain, spinal and pain terminology which has been compiled by me from the phrases and wording commonly used by patients to describe their symptoms and disease names.

Many of the terms used are non-medical or pseudo-medical. Many of the terms used are inter-changeable with others. It is the purpose of this glossary to inform those in need of help how to understand some of the terminology in common use. My definitions and explanations are drawn from the experience of addressing issues and confusion over pain terminology for many years.
