So for neuropathic pain, and maybe I’ll use the example of CRPS as a pretty typical example. We need to first prevent the body from deteriorating because people are not using their body appropriately. Often people will stop moving a painful part or just go to bed. So fairly frequently we need to make sure that the body is staying strong and fit, and we’ll use physical therapy. But in addition, physical therapy provides normal input to the nervous system, and normal input is a counterbalance to the abnormal pain signals. So physical therapy is really one of the key treatments for neuropathic pain and CRPS in specific.
