Neuropathy pain is a bothersome pain. It’s sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the involved
extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even
touch. Williamson neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves taking medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain since they are the most universally
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some can’t
take the drugs because of the unfavorable
side-effects. Apple Country Chiropractic appreciates this annoyance.
Apple Country Chiropractic helps many Williamson neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Williamson
neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT 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
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 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 adjusted are they not recommended
or used more? They’re not often 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) Apple Country Chiropractic is well
informed of such options. Apple Country Chiropractic helps Williamson
chiropractic patients navigate these options to boost
their benefits for Williamson pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
effect of blocking pain sensation and weaken
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The
action of morphine is comparable 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 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). Adding B
vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be beneficial!
