Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Eugene neuropathic pain sufferers many times observe themselves using medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot take them due to the adverse side-effects. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic appreciates this annoyance. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic assists many Eugene neuropathy patients try other means to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Eugene neuropathic pain relief they want.  


Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study describes how adequately dosed nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself as a result of various 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 long periods of time. Some patients stated that they experienced nausea and vomiting when ALA was taken at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be adjusted are they not suggested or used more? They are not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is well aware of such options. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic helps Eugene chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Eugene pain relief.


B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of stopping pain sensation and diminish 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, coming to rest in the feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins are reported to 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). Adding B vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be beneficial! (3) And Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Eugene neuropathy patients to experience neuropathic pain relief.
