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

July 03, 2018

Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Richmond neuropathic pain sufferers many times observe themselves using drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed ones. (1) Some patients react positively. Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot take them due to the adverse side-effects. Johnson Chiropractic understands this vexation. Johnson Chiropractic assists many Richmond neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Richmond neuropathic pain relief they want.  


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 causes 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 extended periods of time. Some patients stated that they experienced nausea and vomiting when ALA was used at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be altered are they not 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 offer.  (1) Johnson Chiropractic is well aware of such options. Johnson Chiropractic helps Richmond chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Richmond pain relief.


B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of obstructing pain sensation and weaken 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, settling 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). Adding B vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
