How Do You Use Low Dose Naltrexone with Prolotherapy?
Should a patient that is scheduled for Prolotherapy, where they want local inflammation in the joint, would it be best to have the patient stop their LDN temporarily so the local information is not interrupted? The concern would be if you stop the LDN temporarily are you actually going to cause more issues and inflammation in other places other than that joint. Would you be creating another issue when you are trying to resolve one issue?
I think you're assuming that the LDN is reducing the inflammation in that joint 100 percent but LDN doesn't cure anything. It helps the body to work on its natural mechanisms and work more efficiently and effectively. If someone is taking LDN and they still have inflammation in that joint LDN is not necessarily 100 percent taking care of that inflammation. If you discontinue LDN you now just cause more inflammation to rise so if they're on LDN they still have issues with that joint, just use the Prolotherapy and leave the LDN alone. That's my professional thought.
