Watertown 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. Watertown neuropathic pain sufferers many times observe themselves consuming drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs because of the adverse side-effects. Watertown Wellness Center appreciates this frustration. Watertown Wellness Center assists many Watertown neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Watertown neuropathic pain relief they desire.  

WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE THEY NOT USED MORE?

Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play a role – 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 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 taken 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 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) Watertown Wellness Center is well informed of such options. Watertown Wellness Center helps Watertown chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve their benefits for Watertown 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 reduce chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The action of morphine is like the action of neuropathic pain, burning pain that follows a nerve from the spine through an extremity like the leg or arm, settling 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). Adding B vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be beneficial! (3) And Watertown Wellness Center combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Watertown neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
