In this issue, Staal and colleagues report on an intervention aimed at changing the way disabled workers perceive and cope with back pain. Patient-centered efforts that promote return to work and address known psychosocial factors through graded activities hold promise for improving disability outcomes. As the authors state, pain relief is not a prerequisite for return to work.
