Baton Rouge 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 affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Baton Rouge neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves taking medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t take the drugs due to the adverse side-effects. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands this annoyance. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps many Baton Rouge neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Baton Rouge neuropathic pain relief they want.  

WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? 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 play a helpful role 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 used for extended 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 adjusted aren’t they recommended or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is well aware of such options. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps Baton Rouge chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize their benefits for Baton Rouge pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving effect of stopping 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 follows 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 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! (3) And Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Baton Rouge neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
