Neuropathy pain is an annoying pain. It is sharp, throbbing, burning pain making the affected extremity - be it the feet or hands, toes, fingers, legs - sensitive to even touch. Augusta neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves consuming 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 minor pain relief. Some cannot take the drugs due to the unfavorable side-effects. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic understands this frustration. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic helps many Augusta neuropathy patients test out other means to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Augusta neuropathic pain relief they desire.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY ARE THEY NOT USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study describes how sufficiently dosed nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up 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 used for long 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 recommended or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is well informed of such options. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic helps Augusta chiropractic patients find their way with these options to improve their benefits for Augusta 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 diminish chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? 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, settling 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). Adding B vitamins to the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain may well be advantageous! (3) And Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic mixes nutrition with its spinal manipulation Cox® Technic protocols for Augusta neuropathy patients to uncover neuropathic pain relief.
