Biomedical is a physical phemonenon while biopsychosocial is physical, mental, and social. I can't figure out which one these examples are. "Which part of your body hurt?", "Is it a sharp pain?", "How long does the pain last"and "What pain medicines have you tried?"
I would consider all of these biopsychosocial phenomena because they call for patient interpretation. It could be argued that the first one is strictly physical, but when my daughter was 2 1/2 she suffered a head injury. Yet the next day she complained of her big toe hurting.
