Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It
is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Minster neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves consuming medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain as they are the most universally
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs because of the adverse
side-effects. Minster Chiropractic Center appreciates this annoyance.
Minster Chiropractic Center helps many Minster neuropathy patients
try other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Minster
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play
a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study reports that sufficiently dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to
different 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 used for long periods of time. Some
patients reported 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 suggested
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 might
deliver. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center is well
informed of such options. Minster Chiropractic Center helps Minster
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Minster pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving
effect of blocking pain sensation and reduce
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 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!
