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

Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Vancouver neuropathic pain sufferers often observe themselves using drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react positively. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t take the drugs because of the unfavorable side-effects. Vancouver Spine Care Centre appreciates this annoyance. Vancouver Spine Care Centre helps many Vancouver neuropathy patients test out other means to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Vancouver 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 describes how sufficiently dosed nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of 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 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 suggested or used more? They are not usually paid for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre is well aware of such options. Vancouver Spine Care Centre helps Vancouver chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Vancouver 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 lessen chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The action of morphine is similar 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 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! (3) And Vancouver Spine Care Centre mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Vancouver neuropathy patients to experience neuropathic pain relief.
