1

Severity

Minimal, Moderate, High

2

Irritability

Low, Moderate, High

3

Nature

Musculoskeletal vs. non-musculoskeletal/ Sinister

4

Stage

Acute, Subacute, Chronic

5

Stability

Worse, Better, Staying the Same

6

What is Severity?

The intensity of the patient's symptoms as they relate to a functional activity

7

Severity: Minimal

Minimal to no pain (0-3/10), symptoms do not limit or hinder activity

8

Severity: Moderate

Pain reduces activity levels to 40-70% of normal, pain rated 4-7/10

9

Severity: High

Pain symptoms severely reduce or stop activities; ADLS are avoided or severely limited, pain rated a 8-10/10

10

What is Irritability?

Time for Symptoms to come on and go away

11

Irritability: Low

Tolerates repetitive or sustained activities, can continue activity after the onset of pain, pain eases in short amount of time

12

Irritability: Moderate

Tolerates brief activities or positions <10 min, continues light activities after the onset of pain, pain eases in similar time as onset (may be longer)

13

Irritability: High

Activity not tolerated- are avoided, unable to continue activity after the onset of pain, symptoms takes a longer time to ease (>30 mins)

14

Nature: Musculoskeletal vs. Non- Musculoskeletal

The type of pain (or descriptors of symptoms) often relays information to the clinician regarding the type of tissue involved.
Reflection of differential diagnosis and systems review.

15

Stage: Acute Pain

Recent Onset (0-6 weeks)

16

Stage: Sub- Acute pain

Pain may be due to later stages of tissue healing or early stages of developing chronic symptoms (6-12 Weeks)

17

Stages: Chronic Pain

Longer Duration- Usually past expected recovery time (>3 months)

18

Stability

The progression of the patients pain (or symptoms) over time, is the patient's pain:
* Getting Better
* Staying the Same
* Getting worse
