Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It
is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Vancouver neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves consuming drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t
take them because of the adverse
side-effects. Vancouver Disc Centers understands this annoyance.
Vancouver Disc Centers helps many Vancouver neuropathy patients
test out other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Vancouver
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? 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 be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of
different 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 stomached
well when used for extended periods of time. Some
patients stated that they experienced nausea and
vomiting when ALA was taken 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 covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers is well
informed of such options. Vancouver Disc Centers helps Vancouver
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve
their benefits for Vancouver pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
effect of stopping pain sensation and reduce
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? The
action of morphine is like 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 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 schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
