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

Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. McHenry neuropathic pain sufferers often observe themselves using medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only minor pain relief. Some cannot take them due to the unfavorable side-effects. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic recognizes this frustration. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic helps many McHenry neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the McHenry neuropathic pain relief they desire.  


Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study reports that 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. 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 used at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be adjusted are they not recommended or used more? They are not often paid for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is well informed of such options. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic helps McHenry chiropractic patients navigate these options to improve their benefits for McHenry pain relief.


B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of blocking pain sensation and reduce chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The action of morphine is comparable 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 lessen 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 OrthoIllinois Chiropractic combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for McHenry neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
