St. Francisville chiropractic care of neuropathy pain with nutrition like B vitamins and spinal manipulation.

Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. St. Francisville neuropathic pain sufferers often observe themselves consuming medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most universally prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs due to the unfavorable side-effects. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville appreciates this vexation. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville assists many St. Francisville neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the St. Francisville neuropathic pain relief they desire.  

WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY AREN’T THEY 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 show up as a result of various types of causes 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 used 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 adjusted aren’t they suggested or used more? They’re not usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is well aware of such options. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville helps St. Francisville chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost their benefits for St. Francisville pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of obstructing pain sensation and weaken chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? 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, coming to rest in the feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins reportedly reduce 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!
