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. St. Francisville neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves consuming medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain since they are the most universally
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot
take the drugs because of the unfavorable
side-effects. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville appreciates this vexation.
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville assists many St. Francisville neuropathy patients
try other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the St. Francisville
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY AREN’T THEY USED MORE?
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 show up 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 used for long 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 aren’t they suggested
or used more? They’re 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) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is well
aware of such options. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville helps St. Francisville
chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost
their benefits for St. Francisville pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of obstructing 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 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 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!
