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. Eugene neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves using medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot
take them due to the adverse
side-effects. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic appreciates this annoyance.
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic assists many Eugene neuropathy patients
try other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Eugene
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT 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 tolerated
well when taken for long periods of time. Some
patients stated that they experienced nausea and
vomiting when ALA was taken at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why
then if doses can be adjusted are they not suggested
or used more? They are not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is well
aware of such options. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic helps Eugene
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Eugene pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
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 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 may well be beneficial!
