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. Toronto neuropathic pain sufferers many times
find themselves consuming medications
like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control
neuropathic pain as they are the most universally
prescribed drugs. (1) Some patients respond well.
Some experience only slight pain relief. Some cannot
take the drugs because of the adverse
side-effects. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes this frustration.
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps many Toronto neuropathy patients
try other ways to pain relief like nutrition
(particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to get the Toronto
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 reports that adequately dosed
nutraceuticals may play a helpful role in managing peripheral
neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself due to
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 taken for extended 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 suggested
or used more? They’re not usually paid
for by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know
much about what these options are and what benefits they may might
deliver. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is well
informed of such options. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps Toronto
chiropractic patients find their way with these options to optimize
their benefits for Toronto pain relief.
ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS
B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance
the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving
effect of blocking pain sensation and diminish
chronic morphine tolerance. How is this helpful? The
action of morphine is comparable 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). Adding B
vitamins to the pain control drug routine for a patient with
neuropathic pain may well be beneficial!
