Unravelling Neuropathic Pain: Ivins Chiropractic's Integrated Assessment Approach

Chronic neuropathic pain presents a significant challenge to both patients and healthcare providers alike, as abnormal sensations stemming from dysfunction or damage to the nervous system characterise it. This pain is often persistent and can cause shooting, burning, or tingling sensations.

We at Ivins Chiropractic have embarked on a revolutionary approach to neuropathic pain management that involves an integrated assessment combining the Ivins CSF Dural Tension Dysautonomia (DTDA) protocol, personalised medicine, and multidisciplinary framework. This comprehensive methodology aims to identify and modify an individual's pain experience with the goal of improving the quality of life for those suffering from this condition.

Unlike acute pain - which is a protective response to injury - neuropathic pain arises from pathophysiological changes in the nervous system, where the nerves themselves become the source of pain signals.

Neuropathic pain can be caused by conditions such as nerve damage, compression, or diabetes, and can persist long after the initial cause has resolved. To address this, our assessment process is built on the foundation of the Ivins CSF Dural Tension Dysautonomia (DTDA) protocol, which focuses on optimising cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow within the central nervous system. This protocol aims to reduce inflammation and enhance nerve conduction by addressing dural tension and dysautonomia.

Personalised medicine is an integral part of our approach to neuropathic pain management. Each patient is treated as unique with distinct medical histories, genetic predispositions, and lifestyle factors. Our team at Ivins Chiropractic carefully considers these factors when developing treatment plans, and tailoring interventions based on individual needs to optimise the chances of successful outcomes and pain reduction.

In addition, our adoption of a multidisciplinary framework in collaboration with a network of health professionals, including physiotherapists, neurologists, and pain management specialists, provides comprehensive care for patients.

This approach includes chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy exercises, and other therapeutic modalities, which maximise pain relief, improve overall well-being, and enhance the quality of life for patients.

Overall, our comprehensive and innovative methodology aims to identify and modify an individual's pain experience, with the ultimate goal of providing effective pain relief and improving the quality of life for patients suffering from neuropathic pain.
