Pain score

A scoring system used by doctors to 'measure' pain.

Because pain is subjective, and therefore difficult to discuss and compare, doctors have attempted to make their research more objective by asking patients to 'score' their pain based on several parameters, eg too painful to run.

Pain scores include visual analogue scale, the WOMAC Pain Score and the KOOS Score.
