Fort Wayne chiropractic care of neuropathy pain with nutrition like B vitamins and spinal manipulation.

July 03, 2018

Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s 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 many times observe themselves taking medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react well. Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t take them due to the unfavorable side-effects. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc recognizes this frustration. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc assists many Fort Wayne neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Fort Wayne neuropathic pain relief they want.  


Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study reports that sufficiently dosed nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to different types of reasons like diabetes, alcoholism, unspecific, or iatrogenic. Additionally, these compounds like Vitamin B complex, alpha lipoic acid, L-acetyl carnitine, vitamin E, magnesium, gamma linolenic acid, capsaicin, and Coenzyme Q were tolerated well when taken for extended 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 adjusted aren’t they recommended or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about 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 improve their benefits for Fort Wayne pain relief.


B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of stopping pain sensation and diminish chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? The action of morphine is comparable to the action of neuropathic pain, burning pain that follows a nerve from the spine through an extremity like the leg or arm, coming to rest in the feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins reportedly weaken 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). Adding B vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous! (3) And Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Fort Wayne neuropathy patients to experience neuropathic pain relief.
