Toronto 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 affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Toronto neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves consuming medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain as they are the most universally prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well. Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs because of the adverse side-effects. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes this frustration. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps many Toronto neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Toronto neuropathic pain relief they desire.  


Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study reports that adequately dosed nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to various 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 taken 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 suggested or used more? They’re not usually 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is well informed of such options. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps Toronto chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize their benefits for Toronto pain relief.


B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving effect of blocking 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 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 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 routine for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be beneficial! (3) And Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Toronto neuropathy patients to discover neuropathic pain relief.
