All About Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

What Exactly is CRPS?

CRPS is a tough condition that brings with it a range of challenging symptoms. While we don’t have a complete cure yet, our specialists are skilled at providing relief and making life more manageable for those dealing with it.

Ever Heard of RSD?

RSD, or reflex sympathetic dystrophy, is a type of CRPS. Imagine a lingering pain that feels like burning, often showing up after an injury. The exact cause is a bit of a mystery, but it’s linked to some unusual nerve activity. When these nerves go into overdrive, it can lead to intense pain.

Who’s at Risk of CRPS?

Anyone can get hit with CRPS, but it seems to affect more women than men. It can pop up at any age, whether you’re young or old. While injuries are a common trigger, surgeries, infections, or even recovering from the flu can set it off. The exact “why” behind this is still a puzzle we’re trying to solve.

How Do We Tackle CRPS?

Our approach includes physical therapy, medication, and a technique called spinal cord stimulation, which uses electrical impulses to dial down the pain. If CRPS is making your life tough, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here, ready to help, and eager to find the best way to ease your pain.

Remember, you don’t have to face chronic pain alone. We’re here to support and guide you every step of the way.
