Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Richmond neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves consuming drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
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 them because of the adverse
side-effects. Johnson Chiropractic understands this frustration.
Johnson Chiropractic helps many Richmond neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Richmond
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 play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself 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 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 aren’t they suggested
or used more? They’re not usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Johnson Chiropractic is well
aware of such options. Johnson Chiropractic helps Richmond
chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost
their benefits for Richmond pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
effect of blocking pain sensation and lessen
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The
action of morphine is comparable to 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 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 may well be advantageous!
