Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It
is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Burlington and Hamilton neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves taking drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain since they are the most universally
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some can’t
take them because of the adverse
side-effects. Spinal Care Clinic appreciates this vexation.
Spinal Care Clinic assists many Burlington and Hamilton neuropathy patients
test out other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Burlington and Hamilton
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – 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 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 tolerated
well when used for extended 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 altered are they not recommended
or used more? They are not often paid
for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Spinal Care Clinic is well
informed of such options. Spinal Care Clinic helps Burlington and Hamilton
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve
their benefits for Burlington and Hamilton pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving
effect of stopping pain sensation and lessen
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? The
action of morphine is similar 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 are reported to 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 certainly could well be beneficial!
