Colorado Springs 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 involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Colorado Springs neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves consuming drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most universally prescribed ones. (1) Some patients react positively. Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs because of the adverse side-effects. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR recognizes this frustration. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps many Colorado Springs neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Colorado Springs neuropathic pain relief they desire.  

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 as a result of 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 taken for extended 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 altered aren’t they suggested or used more? They are not usually paid for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is well informed of such options. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps Colorado Springs chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Colorado Springs pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of obstructing pain sensation and lessen 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, coming to rest 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 routine for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be advantageous! (3) And The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Colorado Springs neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
