Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It
is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Chicago neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves using drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react positively.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some cannot
take them because of the adverse
side-effects. Chiropractic Care understands this frustration.
Chiropractic Care assists many Chicago neuropathy patients
try other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Chicago
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 describes how adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to
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 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 recommended
or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Chiropractic Care is well
aware of such options. Chiropractic Care helps Chicago
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve
their benefits for Chicago 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 diminish
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 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!
