Sitka 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 involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Sitka neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves using drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve neuropathic pain as they are the most universally prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs because of the adverse side-effects. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka understands this frustration. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps many Sitka neuropathy patients test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Sitka neuropathic pain relief they want.  


Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study describes how sufficiently dosed nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself as a result of various 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 tolerated well when taken for extended periods of time. Some patients stated that they had 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 recommended or used more? They are not usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is well aware of such options. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps Sitka chiropractic patients navigate these options to improve their benefits for Sitka pain relief.


B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of stopping 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 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 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 may well be beneficial! (3) And Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Sitka neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
