Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Carrolltown neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves using medications
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 a little pain relief. Some cannot
take the drugs due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation recognizes this frustration.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation assists many Carrolltown neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Carrolltown
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY AREN’T THEY 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 be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to
various 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 stomached
well when used for long periods of time. Some
patients stated that they experienced nausea and
vomiting when ALA was taken at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why
then if doses can be adjusted aren’t they recommended
or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is well
informed of such options. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation helps Carrolltown
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize
their benefits for Carrolltown pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish
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). Adding B
vitamins to the pain control drug routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
