Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Tarrytown neuropathic pain sufferers often
find themselves taking medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t
take them due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Tarrytown Chiropractic understands this frustration.
Tarrytown Chiropractic assists many Tarrytown neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Tarrytown
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 sufficiently dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up due to
various types of causes 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 used for extended periods of time. Some
patients stated that they experienced nausea and
vomiting when ALA was used 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 paid
for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic is well
informed of such options. Tarrytown Chiropractic helps Tarrytown
chiropractic patients navigate these options to improve
their benefits for Tarrytown pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? 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, settling 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous!
