Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Millville neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves taking 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 minor pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Wilson Family Chiropractic appreciates this annoyance.
Wilson Family Chiropractic helps many Millville neuropathy patients
test out other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Millville
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 describes how sufficiently dosed
nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to
various 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 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 altered are they not suggested
or used more? They are not usually paid
for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic is well
aware of such options. Wilson Family Chiropractic helps Millville
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Millville pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving
effect of stopping 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 follows a nerve from the spine
through an extremity like the leg or arm, settling 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 may well be beneficial!
