Fort Wayne chiropractic care of neuropathy pain with nutrition like B vitamins and spinal manipulation. 07/03/2018Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Fort Wayne neuropathic pain sufferers often observe themselves consuming medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react well. Some experience only slight pain relief. Some can’t take the drugs because of the adverse side-effects. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC recognizes this vexation. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC helps many Fort Wayne neuropathy patients try other means to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Fort Wayne neuropathic pain relief they desire. WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE THEY NOT USED MORE? Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study reports that adequately dosed nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to different types of reasons like diabetes, alcoholism, unspecific, or iatrogenic. Plus, these compounds like Vitamin B complex, alpha lipoic acid, L-acetyl carnitine, vitamin E, magnesium, gamma linolenic acid, capsaicin, and Coenzyme Q were stomached well when taken for long periods of time. Some patients reported nausea and vomiting when ALA was used at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be altered are they not recommended or used more? They’re not often paid for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC is well informed of such options. Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC helps Fort Wayne chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost their benefits for Fort Wayne pain relief. ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of obstructing pain sensation and weaken chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The action of morphine is similar to the action of neuropathic pain, burning pain that tracks a nerve from the spine through an extremity like the leg or arm, settling in the feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins are reported to lessen neuropathic pain after peripheral nerve injury, sensory neuron inflammation/compression as well as transient spinal cord ischemia (temporary blockage of blood supply to the spinal cord). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
