Suggested scales according to the effected joint. Please click on the link/buttons of the corresponding tests to review/print.
1. For ALL patients with pain (except shoulder pain): Pain and Disability Index.
2. For Shoulder/Elbow/Hand: Croft Disability Questionnaire, DASH/Quick Dash, PENN Shoulder Disability Index, and Pain and Disability Index
3. For Neck/Back pain: Spine and Neck Disability Index, Oswerty Scale, Quebec, and Pain and Disability Index.
