Overview of the Pathophysiology of Neuropathic Pain

Neuropathic pain is a complex, chronic pain condition that is generally accompanied by soft tissue injury. Neuropathic pain is common in clinical practice and also poses a challenge to patients and clinicians alike. With neuropathic pain, the nerve fibers themselves may be either damaged, dysfunctional or injured. Neuropathic pain is the result of damage from trauma or disease to the peripheral or central nervous system, where the lesion may occur at any site. As a result, these damaged nerve fibers can send incorrect signals to other pain centers. The effect of a nerve fiber injury consists of a change in neural function, both at the region of the injury and also around the injury. Clinical signs of neuropathic pain normally include sensory phenomena, such as spontaneous pain, paresthesias and hyperalgesia.

Neuropathic pain, as defined by the International Association of the Study of Pain or the IASP, is pain initiated or caused by a primary lesion or dysfunction of the nervous syste…

His interest in a more organic, less invasive approach to healing opened the door for the natural, whole body wellness that chiropractic provides.
Chiropractic In 1895, Palmer encountered a janitor who claimed that he had lost his hearing when he moved and heard a “pop” in his back. Upon inspection, Palmer noted that the janitor had a vertebra out of place. He had the man lie on the floor, face down, while he manipulated the man’s spine, gently coaxing it into alignment. The next day the janitor claimed that he could hear again.

Two years later, after extensive research and development of the practice of what he …
