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. Vancouver neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves using drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react positively.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs because of the unfavorable
side-effects. Vancouver Spine Care Centre appreciates this annoyance.
Vancouver Spine Care Centre helps many Vancouver neuropathy patients
test out other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Vancouver
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? 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 sufficiently dosed
nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of
various 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 long 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 are they not suggested
or used more? They are not usually paid
for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre is well
aware of such options. Vancouver Spine Care Centre helps Vancouver
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Vancouver pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of blocking pain sensation and lessen
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The
action of morphine is similar 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 reportedly 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
