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. Oxford neuropathic pain sufferers often
observe themselves using drugs
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve
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. Satterwhite Chiropractic understands this annoyance.
Satterwhite Chiropractic assists many Oxford neuropathy patients
try other means to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Oxford
neuropathic pain relief they want.
WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE? WHY ARE
THEY NOT USED MORE?
Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well play
a role – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One
study describes how adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself as a result of
various 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 aren’t they 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 offer. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic is well
aware of such options. Satterwhite Chiropractic helps Oxford
chiropractic patients navigate these options to improve
their benefits for Oxford 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 diminish
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The
action of morphine is like 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 routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain certainly could well be beneficial!
