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. Ashburn neuropathic pain sufferers often
find themselves consuming drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t
take them due to the unfavorable
side-effects. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes this annoyance.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn assists many Ashburn neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Ashburn
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 reports that adequately 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. Additionally, 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 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 recommended
or used more? They’re not usually 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is well
informed of such options. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn helps Ashburn
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve
their benefits for Ashburn pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of obstructing 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, 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 schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be beneficial!
