Jun's description is exactly what keeps the words distinct for me.

Ushiro is a word that has always meant "behind" as in the area behind me. Attacks are named ushiro, and there are jo movements like "ushiro tsuki"... so ushiro always means behind me..

I guess that might not help but that's what makes sense to me.
