In the SNL model, the L4-S2 spinous processes are exposed and part of the L6 transverse process is removed. Tight ligation occurs between L5 and L6. On day 1, inclusion/exclusion is performed based on placement of paw when walking. Two weeks later, pain threshold is tested using Von Frey and continues for length of study.
