Abstract: For individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI), parts of the body that were once connected to the brain become isolated, leading to diminished movement (paralysis), reduced sensation, and various secondary conditions. Presenting in the initial days to weeks after injury, pain represents a particularly debilitating consequence of SCI, significantly affecting quality of life. Unfortunately, both neuropathic and nociceptive (musculoskeletal) pain are refractory to many treatment options, and necessitate lifelong management.
