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.
