Ashburn 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 involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Ashburn neuropathic pain sufferers often find themselves consuming drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t take them due to the unfavorable side-effects. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes this annoyance. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn assists many Ashburn neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Ashburn 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 reports that adequately dosed nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to 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 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 recommended or used more? They’re not usually paid for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is well informed of such options. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps Ashburn chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve their benefits for Ashburn 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 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, settling in the feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins are reported to weaken 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 certainly could well be beneficial!
