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. Fort Wayne neuropathic pain sufferers often
find themselves consuming medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain since they are the most universally
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react well.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs because of the adverse
side-effects. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center recognizes this vexation.
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center helps many Fort Wayne neuropathy patients
try other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Fort Wayne
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? 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 play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up 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 stomached
well when taken for extended 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 altered are they not recommended
or used more? They’re 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) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center is well
informed of such options. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center helps Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost
their benefits for Fort Wayne pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
effect of obstructing pain sensation and weaken
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The
action of morphine is similar to 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 reportedly lessen
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 beneficial!
