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. Manahawkin neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves using drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients react well.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some cannot
take them due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center appreciates this frustration.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center assists many Manahawkin neuropathy patients
test out other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Manahawkin
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 describes how 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. 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 taken 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 altered are they not suggested
or used more? They’re not usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is well
aware of such options. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center helps Manahawkin
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Manahawkin 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 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 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). Adding B
vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous!
