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. Brooks neuropathic pain sufferers often
find themselves taking drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce
neuropathic pain as they are the most universally
prescribed ones. (1) Some patients react well.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot
take the drugs because of the adverse
side-effects. Soft Health and Healing Clinic appreciates this annoyance.
Soft Health and Healing Clinic assists many Brooks neuropathy patients
test out other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Brooks
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 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 tolerated
well when taken for long periods of time. Some
patients reported 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 be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is well
informed of such options. Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps Brooks
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost
their benefits for Brooks pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins improve
the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic
effect of blocking 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 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 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 certainly could well be advantageous!
