Pain Assessment Form

1-2 Pain that does not interfer with your thoughts or activities.  

3 Functionally disabling.  The pain is starting to effect  your ability to perform the current activitiesd.  (i.e. decreased movement, decreased speed, and/or the need to rest and/or stretch in order to continue completing the current activity).  

4 Pain between 4 and 5.  

5 Very disabling pain.  Causes great difficulty moving or applying any strength through the painful area.  You are unable to complete the current activity.  

6 Pain that causes disability between 5 and 7.
