West Des Moines 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. West Des Moines neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves consuming drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain as they are the most universally prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t take the drugs due to the adverse side-effects. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa recognizes this vexation. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa helps many West Des Moines neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the West Des Moines 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 play a helpful role 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 reported 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’re not usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is well aware of such options. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa helps West Des Moines chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost their benefits for West Des Moines pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? 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, 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug routine for a patient with neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous!
