Chronic Musculoskeletal related pain such as Osteoarthritis or Inter Vertebral Disk Disease are originally caused by a localized inflammatory process leading over time to reversible plasticity at the level of the CNS in a process called Central Sensitization. Neuropathic pain is defined as pain resulting from a lesion or disease involving the somatosensory nervous system. In human medicine, NP is often refractory to treatments, reduces quality of life, and impairs sleep and, causes anxiety and depression.
