Book Description :

Spinal Cord Injury Pain presents the basis for preclinical and clinical investigations, along with strategies for new approaches in the treatment of central neuropathic pain. Contributors from the private sector and academia provide a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art research in this challenging space. Topics include Epidemiology of Chronic Pain Following SCI, experimental models and mechanisms of chronic pain in SCI, and new targets and technologies. This book serves as a resource for continued translational research that will result in novel approaches and treatments that improve function and quality of life for individuals with CNP/SCI. Despite a better understanding of the complexity of mechanisms of CNP/SCI, improved medical and surgical management of SCI, and the subsequent acceleration of the identification of new targets and the development of novel analgesics, there is still a great unmet clinical need in the area of CNP following SCI. Hence, this book is a welcomed addition to current research and developments.

Book Description :

Background aims:Causes of chronic pain are postulated to lie in abnormal pain modulation apparent in many diseases. The nociceptive system is balanced with certain anti- and pro-nociceptive mechanisms. Former includes the spinal inhibitory network assessed by conditioned pain modulation. Latter is due to a sensitization along the nociceptive neuraxis leading to ectopic excitability, contributing to hyperalgesia and allodynia. Temporal summation of pain (TSP) reflects this central sensitization.Methods:This study assesses pain modulation during tonic noxious heat application in three groups: Thoracic spinal cord injury (SCI) patients with and without neuropathic pain (NP), and matched healthy controls. The assessment was performed at the volar forearm in order to investigate a sensory intact area. A thermode was heated to 45u00b0C, and the participant was instructed to rate the pain on a numeric rating scale. Subsequently, they had to keep the pain level constant for two minutes by adjusting the temperature of the thermode (participant-controlled temperature, PCT). Clicking the mouse buttons increased or decreased the temperature, respectively.Results:The binary analysis of TSP occurrence highlighted that NP patients show the highest percentage of TSP occurrences (NP: 88%, nonNP: 63.6%, HC: 80%). Statistical analysis revealed a significant increase of the TSP magnitude and the TSP area under curve between the NP and nonNP SCI group.Conclusions:Increased temporal summation of pain u2013 acting as a proxy for central sensitization - was found in SCI patients with chronic NP. The method of tonic heat profiles enables a continuous measure allowing the analysis of adaptation and the TSP processes.

Book Description :

Approximately 70% of spinal cord injured patients suffer from pain and it is estimated that in 40-50% of these, the pain is of central neuropathic origin. This pain can be perceived to originate at, or below the level of injury and both evoked and spontaneous pain can occur. Neuropathic pain after spinal cord injury (SCI) is difficult to treat and often poorly controlled by the currently available analgesics so that development of better treatments is an important need. Current ideas about the treatment of SCI pain are that different approaches may be needed to treat the different types of pain (e.g. evoked and spontaneous, at level and below level) as they may have different mechanisms. However, this mechanistic approach to treatment is hampered by a poor understanding of the underlying mechanisms. This in turn depends on development of animal models and pain assessment techniques suitable for mechanistic studies. In this thesis, several rodent SCI models have been investigated using a range of assessment techniques some of which were developed in the course of the study. Contusion injuries at a low thoracic level are currently the most popular model used to investigate central neuropathic pain in rodents. However this model and the assessments used with it are subject to a number of limitations. We therefore began by re-evaluating this model using a relatively severe (200 kdyn) injury since this is indicated in the literature as being necessary for the development of robust signs of neuropathic pain. We found that this model showed robust signs of tactile allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia of the forepaws and in addition by developing new tests, were able to demonstrate cold allodynia and hyperalgesia. Although the hindpaws also showed responses that would normally be interpreted as mechanical allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia, the absence of accompanying supraspinally mediated behaviours (including licking following heat stimuli) indicated that the enhanced responsiveness to these stimuli might not give rise to pain. Further investigation using operant testing supported this idea and tract tracing suggested that this may be due to substantial interruption of ascending nociceptive pathways. Testing over the back at locations confirmed electrophysiologically to involve sensory processing at, above and below the injury level supported the idea that increased sensitivity in this model developed at and above, but not below level. In addition, observations on the forepaws suggested evidence of spontaneous pain which has never been described in SCI models previously and provides an important opportunity for studying the underlying mechanisms. Because the 200 kdyn low thoracic model proved unsuitable for the study of below level pain we next investigated whether a less severe injury at this level would provide a better model. Injuries of 150 kdyn were found to result in most of the same indicators of pain following forelimb testing as were seen following 200 kdyn injuries but all signs were less pronounced, in particular, indicators of evoked pain. Testing over the back led to increased sensitivity below level which had not been evident in the 200 kdyn model, providing an opportunity for below level testing. However, interpretation of hindpaw tests remained equivocal. Because the low thoracic model showed features that suggested forelimb assessments were particularly useful for the assessment of above level pain of different modalities as well as spontaneous pain, we investigated the effect of moving the injury closer to the segments assessed by such tests. Injuries at the T3/T4 level were found to lead to enhancement of all of the behavioural signs seen in the 200 kdyn low thoracic injury animals, especially signs of spontaneous pain. This model may therefore be optimum for the assessment of above/at level pain. The work presented in this thesis provides the clearest and most comprehensive data yet on the utility of models of SCI for the investigation of central neuropathic pain and represents a significant advance in the field. The finding that injuries at low thoracic levels may (depending on injury severity) be unsuitable for assessment of below level pain has implications for previous studies of the mechanisms of post SCI pain, many of which have used exclusively hindlimb assessments in these models. The hope is that an improved understanding of the models used here and an improved ability to investigate different modalities of evoked pain, and in addition spontaneous pain, will enhance the quality of future research in this area and lead to both a better understanding of central neuropathic pain mechanisms and the development of more effective analgesics for this type of pain.

Book Description :

Background and aimsThe management of chronic pain after spinal cord injury (SCI) is very challenging and there is a lack of evidence on the impact of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments. Mental practice (MP) can be used as an adjunct treatment for motor recovery as well as pain relief. Until now, the effect of MP on pain in SCI patients remains unclear. In this systematic review, we aim to identify therapeutic benefits of MP for both pain management and motor function recovery in SCI people.MethodsFrom the 9924 non-duplicate titles of potential relevance, 19 (2 RCT, 9 quasi-RCT, 8 observational) studies were selected for final analysis and were rated using standardized critical appraisal assessment forms from the Joanna Briggs Institute. Because of significant heterogeneity in the included studies, we summarized intervention effects on outcomes of interest descriptively. ResultsThe included studies involved 307 patients. Results showed mainly improvement in motor function and pain, although some reported no effect or increase in pain. Training modalities of MP were heterogeneous, nevertheless most of the studies used shorter sessions (8 to 20 minutes) for pain management, and 30 to 60 minutes sessions for motor improvement. Neurophysiological data demonstrate reorganizations in brain activity, which could be corrected by MP.ConclusionsHigh heterogeneity in SCI population, interventions and outcomes measured, makes it hard to judge about therapeutic effects and best MP protocol, especially in SCI with neuropathic pain. Further clinical trials evaluating MP as adjunct therapy for pain in SCI patients are warranted.
