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

Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Chicago neuropathic pain sufferers many times observe themselves using drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react positively. Some experience only minor pain relief. Some cannot take them because of the adverse side-effects. Chiropractic Care understands this frustration. Chiropractic Care assists many Chicago neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Chicago neuropathic pain relief they want.  

WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY AREN’T THEY USED MORE?

Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study describes how adequately dosed nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to various 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 tolerated well when taken for extended periods of time. Some patients reported nausea and vomiting when ALA was taken 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 covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) Chiropractic Care is well aware of such options. Chiropractic Care helps Chicago chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve their benefits for Chicago pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? The action of morphine is like 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 are reported to 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 advantageous! (3) And Chiropractic Care combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Chicago neuropathy patients to experience neuropathic pain relief.
