Abstract/Notes Spinal pain of mechanical origin, with or without referred pain, is a serious health problem supered byAustralians and in other societies around the world. In order to help patients with this ailment and to investigate some multidisciplinary treatment approaches for this costly and debilitating condition, the National Unit for Multidisciplinary Studies of Spinal Pain was established at Townsville General Hospital as a joint venture between James Cook University of North Queensland and the Northern Regional HeaIth Authority in July 1995: In view of the Unit's multidisciplinary clinical team, some political forces have presented an unsupportive stand against the Unit. Nonetheless the Unit continues to function successfully, provides a very useful public service and shows that a multidisciplinary clinical team can work harmoniously in an Australian hospital setting. The need for such a Unit is demonstrated by an ever-increasing demand for its professional services as indicated by a review of the number of new patients and overall patient visits.
