The DolSCI Network: Harnessing Expertise for Better Neuropathic Pain Control

An estimated two-thirds of individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI), over 25,000 people in the UK, are suffering with nerve or neuropathic pain, which has an enormous impact on psychological well-being, rehabilitation and quality of life. Neuropathic pain is a major problem following CNS injury, and is directly related to mood changes, interference in daily life activities and change in the way the individual can cope with their own pain. Little is known of how novel therapeutic strategies could control high-impact types of pain, improve the body´s natural pain-killing system, or help people to cope with their pain. The DolSCI Network will bring together experts to improve the objective diagnosis of SCI neuropathic pain using QST (Miguel Rodriguez, Advanced Medical equipment) and multichannel EEG analysis (Armin Schnürer, Gtec). In this talk we will show how better pain diagnosis can help to characterise individual neuropsychological components of pain and accelerate rehabilitation.
