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. McHenry neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves using medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some cannot
take them due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Spengel Chiropractic recognizes this frustration.
Spengel Chiropractic helps many McHenry neuropathy patients
try other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the McHenry
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play
a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study reports that adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful 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 used 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 adjusted are they not recommended
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 might
deliver. (1) Spengel Chiropractic is well
informed of such options. Spengel Chiropractic helps McHenry
chiropractic patients navigate these options to improve
their benefits for McHenry pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of blocking pain sensation and reduce
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The
action of morphine is comparable 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 are reported to 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). Adding B
vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous!
