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. Nashua neuropathic pain sufferers often observe themselves using drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to reduce neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients react well. Some experience only a little pain relief. Some cannot take them due to the adverse side-effects. Moriarty Chiropractic appreciates this vexation. Moriarty Chiropractic assists many Nashua neuropathy patients try other ways to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Nashua neuropathic pain relief they desire.
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 describes how sufficiently dosed nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up 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 reported nausea and vomiting when ALA was taken at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be adjusted aren’t they 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 offer. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic is well aware of such options. Moriarty Chiropractic helps Nashua chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve their benefits for Nashua pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins perform. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s analgesic effect of obstructing pain sensation and lessen 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 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). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be advantageous! (3) And Moriarty Chiropractic combines nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Nashua neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
