Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Peoria neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves taking drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some can’t
take them due to the adverse
side-effects. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture understands this annoyance.
Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture helps many Peoria neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Peoria
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? 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 show up as a result of
different 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 stomached
well when used for long periods of time. Some
patients stated that they experienced nausea and
vomiting when ALA was taken at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why
then if doses can be adjusted are they not suggested
or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture is well
aware of such options. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture helps Peoria
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Peoria pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
effect of obstructing pain sensation and lessen
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? 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 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 routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
