This course will initially focus on the assessment of neuropathic pain in the clinic utilizing standardized instruments, both of new pain and established pain that may be worsening. Next a process of identifying neuropathic pain phenotypes and related biomarkers in the context of finding more targeted treatments will be reviewed. This will be followed up with an exploration of the challenges faced in linking hypothesis-driven basic science including animal experiments to clinical studies in SCI subjects in identifying pain treatments. The course will conclude with an evidence based review of current recommended treatments for neuropathic pain.
