Vancouver 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 involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Vancouver neuropathic pain sufferers often observe themselves consuming drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t take them because of the adverse side-effects. Vancouver Disc Centers understands this annoyance. Vancouver Disc Centers helps many Vancouver neuropathy patients test out other means to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Vancouver neuropathic pain relief they desire.  

WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY AREN’T THEY USED MORE?

Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study reports that adequately dosed nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of different 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 stomached well when used 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 covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) Vancouver Disc Centers is well informed of such options. Vancouver Disc Centers helps Vancouver chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve their benefits for Vancouver pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of stopping pain sensation and reduce chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? 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 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 beneficial! (3) And Vancouver Disc Centers combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Vancouver neuropathy patients to experience neuropathic pain relief.
