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

July 03, 2018

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. Baton Rouge neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves taking 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 cannot take the drugs due to the unfavorable side-effects. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers recognizes this annoyance. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers assists many Baton Rouge neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Baton Rouge neuropathic pain relief they desire.  


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 reveal itself 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 stomached well when used for extended periods of time. Some patients stated that they had nausea and vomiting when ALA was used at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be adjusted are they not suggested or used more? They’re not often paid for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is well informed of such options. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers helps Baton Rouge chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Baton Rouge pain relief.


B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving effect of blocking pain sensation and lessen chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? 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 reportedly 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug routine for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be beneficial! (3) And Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Baton Rouge neuropathy patients to experience neuropathic pain relief.
