Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Groton neuropathic pain sufferers many times
observe themselves using medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
neuropathic pain as they are the most commonly
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react positively.
Some experience only a little pain relief. Some can’t
take them because of the adverse
side-effects. Hutter Chiropractic Office understands this frustration.
Hutter Chiropractic Office helps many Groton neuropathy patients
try other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Groton
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 sufficiently dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to
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 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 are they not suggested
or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Hutter Chiropractic Office is well
informed of such options. Hutter Chiropractic Office helps Groton
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve
their benefits for Groton pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling
effect of obstructing pain sensation and diminish
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this good? The
action of morphine is similar 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 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 beneficial!
