Pflugerville 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. Pflugerville neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves taking medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot take them due to the unfavorable side-effects. Pflugerville Wellness Center recognizes this vexation. Pflugerville Wellness Center helps many Pflugerville neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Pflugerville 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 be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to different 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 extended periods of time. Some patients stated that they experienced nausea and vomiting when ALA was used at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be adjusted aren’t they recommended or used more? They are 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center is well informed of such options. Pflugerville Wellness Center helps Pflugerville chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize their benefits for Pflugerville pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of blocking pain sensation and lessen chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The action of morphine is comparable 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 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be advantageous! (3) And Pflugerville Wellness Center combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Pflugerville neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
