Accurate pain measurement is crucial for effective pain management. However, pain measurement can be fraught with fallacies that can undermine the validity and reliability of pain assessment. This review is intended to examine some of the most common fallacies/pitfalls in pain measurement and their implications for clinical practice. To overcome these fallacies, clinicians and researchers should use multidimensional pain measures that capture the different dimensions of the pain experience and the psychological and social factors that influence pain perception and coping mechanisms. The dynamic nature of pain behest the importance of a comprehensive and multidimensional approach to pain assessment and management that considers pain's physical, psychological, and social aspects, including its underlying mechanisms, intensity, quality, and impact on function and quality of life. Physiotherapists using these strategies can improve the accuracy and reliability of pain evaluation and provide better care for people experiencing pain.
