Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It
is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Watertown neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves consuming drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot
take the drugs because of the adverse
side-effects. Watertown Wellness Center appreciates this frustration.
Watertown Wellness Center assists many Watertown neuropathy patients
try other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Watertown
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
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 reports that adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up 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 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 covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Watertown Wellness Center is well
informed of such options. Watertown Wellness Center helps Watertown
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve
their benefits for Watertown 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 reduce
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The
action of morphine is like the action of
neuropathic pain, burning pain that follows 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). Adding B
vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
