Lynchburg chiropractic care of neuropathy pain with nutrition like B vitamins and spinal manipulation.

Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Lynchburg neuropathic pain sufferers often find themselves consuming drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react well. Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot take them due to the unfavorable side-effects. Palmer Chiropractic Center recognizes this annoyance. Palmer Chiropractic Center assists many Lynchburg neuropathy patients test out other means to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Lynchburg neuropathic pain relief they desire.  


Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study describes how 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. 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 long periods of time. Some patients reported nausea and vomiting when ALA was taken 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 be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center is well aware of such options. Palmer Chiropractic Center helps Lynchburg chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize their benefits for Lynchburg pain relief.


B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling 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, coming to rest 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). Adding B vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous! (3) And Palmer Chiropractic Center combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Lynchburg neuropathy patients to experience neuropathic pain relief.
