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. Preston neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves using drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain since they are the most universally
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Chiropractic Associates appreciates this annoyance.
Chiropractic Associates helps many Preston neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Preston
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY AREN’T THEY USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play
a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study describes how adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself as a result of
various 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 stomached
well when used for extended periods of time. Some
patients stated that they had nausea and
vomiting when ALA was used at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why
then if doses can be adjusted are they not recommended
or used more? They are not often paid
for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Chiropractic Associates is well
aware of such options. Chiropractic Associates helps Preston
chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost
their benefits for Preston pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of blocking pain sensation and reduce
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The
action of morphine is like 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 routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
