Tarrytown 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. Tarrytown neuropathic pain sufferers often find themselves taking medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t take them due to the unfavorable side-effects. Tarrytown Chiropractic understands this frustration. Tarrytown Chiropractic assists many Tarrytown neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Tarrytown 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 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 tolerated well when used 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 altered are they not suggested or used more? They are not often paid for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic is well informed of such options. Tarrytown Chiropractic helps Tarrytown chiropractic patients navigate these options to improve their benefits for Tarrytown pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The action of morphine is like 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 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 routine for a patient with neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous! (3) And Tarrytown Chiropractic mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Tarrytown neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
