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

Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Carrolltown neuropathic pain sufferers many times observe themselves using medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most universally prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs due to the adverse side-effects. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes this frustration. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation assists many Carrolltown neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Carrolltown neuropathic pain relief they desire.  

WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? 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 be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to various types of causes 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 used for long periods of time. Some patients stated that they experienced nausea and vomiting when ALA was taken 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 might deliver.  (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is well informed of such options. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation helps Carrolltown chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize their benefits for Carrolltown pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish 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, settling 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). Adding B vitamins to the pain control drug routine for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be beneficial! (3) And Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Carrolltown neuropathy patients to discover neuropathic pain relief.
