Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It
is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Baton Rouge neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves using medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs due to the adverse
side-effects. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands this annoyance.
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps many Baton Rouge neuropathy patients
try other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Baton Rouge
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY AREN’T THEY USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – 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 tolerated
well when taken for extended periods of time. Some
patients reported nausea and
vomiting when ALA was taken 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 often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is well
aware of such options. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps Baton Rouge
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize
their benefits for Baton Rouge pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving
effect of stopping 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 follows a nerve from the spine
through an extremity like the leg or arm, coming to rest in the
feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins are reported to 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!
