Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It
is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Lynchburg neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves consuming drugs
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 slight pain relief. Some cannot
take them due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Palmer Chiropractic Center recognizes this annoyance.
Palmer Chiropractic Center assists many Lynchburg neuropathy patients
test out other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Lynchburg
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
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 show up as a result of
different 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 taken for long periods of time. Some
patients reported nausea and
vomiting when ALA was taken 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 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center is well
aware of such options. Palmer Chiropractic Center helps Lynchburg
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize
their benefits for Lynchburg pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of stopping pain sensation and reduce
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? The
action of morphine is like the action of
neuropathic pain, burning pain that tracks 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 weaken
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!
