Abstract

STUDY DESIGN:

Clinical practice guidelines.

OBJECTIVES:

To develop the first Canadian clinical practice guidelines for treatment of neuropathic pain in people with spinal cord injury (SCI).

SETTING:

The guidelines are relevant for inpatient and outpatient SCI rehabilitation settings in Canada.

METHODS:

The CanPainSCI Working Group reviewed the evidence for different treatment options and achieved consensus. The Working Group then developed clinical considerations for each recommendation. Recommendations for research are also included.

RESULTS:

Twelve recommendations were developed for the management of neuropathic pain after SCI. The recommendations address both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatment modalities.

CONCLUSIONS:

An expert Working Group developed recommendations for the treatment of neuropathic pain after SCI that should be used to inform practice.
