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. Pflugerville neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves taking medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain as they are the most universally
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot
take them due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Pflugerville Wellness Center recognizes this vexation.
Pflugerville Wellness Center helps many Pflugerville neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Pflugerville
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY AREN’T THEY USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play
a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study reports that sufficiently dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to
different 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 stomached
well when taken 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 adjusted aren’t they recommended
or used more? They are 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center is well
informed of such options. Pflugerville Wellness Center helps Pflugerville
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize
their benefits for Pflugerville pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of blocking pain sensation and lessen
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The
action of morphine is comparable to the action of
neuropathic pain, burning pain that tracks a nerve from the spine
through an extremity like the leg or arm, settling in the
feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins reportedly 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 advantageous!
