Baton Rouge neuropathic pain sufferers often observe themselves using drugs like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to control neuropathic pain since they are the most universally prescribed ones. (1) Some patients respond positively. Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t take them due to the unfavorable side-effects. Spine & Sports Rehab Center recognizes this annoyance.

Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study reports that adequately dosed nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may reveal itself as a result of different types of reasons 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 long 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 are they not recommended or used more? They’re not usually covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not know much about what these options are and what benefits they may might deliver.  (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is well informed of such options. Spine & Sports Rehab Center helps Baton Rouge chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Baton Rouge pain relief.


B vitamins work. How? B vitamins improve the effectiveness of morphine’s pain-relieving effect of obstructing pain sensation and weaken chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? 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, settling 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!
