FIG. 32-1. Adjective rating scale.

A numerical rating scale (NRS) can be presented as a verbal or graphic scale to describe pain intensity ( Fig 32-2). The patient is asked to self-report pain on a scale of zero to ten (0 = no pain, 10 = worst possible pain) and mark it off graphically, self-report verbally, or—where language or speech is difficult—indicate the numerical value with upheld fingers.
