Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Sitka neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves using drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain as they are the most universally
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot
take the drugs because of the adverse
side-effects. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka understands this frustration.
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps many Sitka neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Sitka
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT 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 play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself as a result of
various 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 tolerated
well when taken for extended periods of time. Some
patients stated that they had 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 recommended
or used more? They are not usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is well
aware of such options. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps Sitka
chiropractic patients navigate these options to improve
their benefits for Sitka pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of stopping pain sensation and weaken
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, coming to rest 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 beneficial!
