    They are doing a study about chronic pain with sci. SO they are either doing more than one study, or that is a typo.

    Clearing up Confusion

    Hi Everyone,

    We are in fact doing multiple studies regarding pain. Right now we are looking for individuals without chronic neuropathic pain to use as comparisons to individuals with pain. We want to know why some people experience pain while others do not.

    We are always doing pain studies. If you are interested in learning more please check out our website.

    Thanks!
