What is it about?
We compounded a topical baclofen 5% cream, and used the cream to counteract pain in this patient suffering from a partial spinal cord injury lesion . Although the pain lessened, the numbness underneath the pain became more evident, and patient complained about being less stable; apparently she 'walked' on her pain.
Why is it important?
Pain may serve as a sensory feedback mechanism to coordinate walking in a partial spinal cord injury lesion.
