Lowdose Naltrexone

Low-dose naltrexone, or LDN, is a type of pain relief treatment that has helped patients who suffer from chronic pain and autoimmune conditions. The use of naltrexone as a pain reliever is considered off-label, but it is still effective and safe. Combining LDN treatment with chiropractic adjustments can deliver lasting pain relief and improve your ability to move without pain. Sarasota Chiropractic and Physical Therapy in Sarasota, FL, has the chiropractic care you need to feel like yourself again. We are here to tell you more about low-dose naltrexone and how seeing a chiropractor near you can help with pain relief.

Low Dose Naltrexone

Understanding Naltrexone

Naltrexone is commonly associated with treatment for opioid and alcohol addiction due to its action as an opioid-receptor antagonist. Naltrexone blocks opioid receptors in the brain and reduces physical cravings for opiates and alcohol, making it easier for the patient to go through withdrawal symptoms. Further elevating the use of naltrexone is the fact that it does not have the potential for abuse and is non-addictive, making it safe to use.

Small-scale studies of the use of naltrexone and pain relief have shown patients with autoimmune conditions and chronic pain experience pain relief while using naltrexone.

How Low-Dose Naltrexone is Used for Pain Management

LDN is a common treatment for fibromyalgia, but people can also use it for chronic pain conditions that have an inflammatory component. Most pain conditions include inflammation as a symptom or cause, but some conditions can center around inflammation. These conditions include chronic pelvic pain, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and more. Opioids can treat many of these conditions, but some people want an alternative to avoid opioid usage.

Naltrexone is safe to use in treating chronic pain and does not have a risk of addiction. The average dosage for the treatment of addiction with naltrexone is 50mg, but many people find this dosage to be too high for the treatment of their chronic pain. Prescribers lowered the dose to between 1 and 5mg, resulting in the description of low-dose naltrexone. This small amount of naltrexone is highly effective in delivering pain relief.
