Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Plainville neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves taking medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react well.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot
take them due to the adverse
side-effects. Layden Chiropractic appreciates this vexation.
Layden Chiropractic helps many Plainville neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Plainville
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY AREN’T THEY USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study reports that adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to
different types of causes 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 used for extended 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 aren’t they suggested
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 might
deliver. (1) Layden Chiropractic is well
aware of such options. Layden Chiropractic helps Plainville
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Plainville 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 diminish
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, settling in the
feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins reportedly lessen
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!
