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. Plymouth neuropathic pain sufferers often
find themselves taking drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react positively.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t
take them because of the adverse
side-effects. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology understands this annoyance.
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology helps many Plymouth neuropathy patients
try other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Plymouth
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study reports that adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to
different 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 used for long periods of time. Some
patients reported nausea and
vomiting when ALA was used at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why
then if doses can be adjusted aren’t they 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 offer. (1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is well
aware of such options. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology helps Plymouth
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize
their benefits for Plymouth pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
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 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 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 advantageous!
