Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. West Des Moines neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves consuming drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain as they are the most universally
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs due to the adverse
side-effects. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa recognizes this vexation.
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa helps many West Des Moines neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the West Des Moines
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
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 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 adjusted aren’t they recommended
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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is well
aware of such options. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa helps West Des Moines
chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost
their benefits for West Des Moines pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving
effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? 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, 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be advantageous!
