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. Mandeville neuropathic pain sufferers often
find themselves taking drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain since they are the most universally
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond well.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some cannot
take the drugs because of the unfavorable
side-effects. Mandeville Chiropractic appreciates this vexation.
Mandeville Chiropractic assists many Mandeville neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Mandeville
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? 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 play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of
different 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 stomached
well when used for long 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 adjusted are they not recommended
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 offer. (1) Mandeville Chiropractic is well
informed of such options. Mandeville Chiropractic helps Mandeville
chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost
their benefits for Mandeville pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving
effect of obstructing pain sensation and diminish
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The
action of morphine is like 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 routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be beneficial!
