Brooks 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. Brooks neuropathic pain sufferers often find themselves taking drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce neuropathic pain as they are the most universally prescribed ones. (1) Some patients react well. Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs because of the adverse side-effects. Soft Health and Healing Clinic appreciates this annoyance. Soft Health and Healing Clinic assists many Brooks neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Brooks 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 describes how adequately dosed nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of different types of reasons 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 tolerated 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 usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is well informed of such options. Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps Brooks chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Brooks pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous! (3) And Soft Health and Healing Clinic mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Brooks neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
