In order to manage pain, it is important to assess the pain. The rating scale below is often used in place of the 0-10 verbal self-rating. Behavior is not always a good indicator of pain and lack of ability to comprehend or verbalize due to pain or other factors may add additional stress to accuracy. This rating scale is a visual scale that can also be found in myriad of languages, such as Mandarin, Japanese, and many others.
