Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Treatment
Nerve pain disorders are among the most complex and difficult to treat. Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) syndrome, can cause ongoing pain and disability that can disrupt your life. If you have been diagnosed with CRPS or you are experiencing the symptoms of this disorder, our team at CLEAR Wellness Group can offer hope. We offer advanced complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) treatment at our clinic in Chicago.
CRPS is a nerve disorder that involves overacting nerves causing chronic pain. The cause of the disorder is not always apparent, but it is often is related to a previous injury or health condition. The nerves in an area can become overly sensitive, resulting in symptoms that may include:
- The skin may feel warmer or cooler to the touch
- Burning pain sensation
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Pain area increases with time
- Skin texture changes
Some patients also experience inflammation in nearby joints or notice shiny or thin skin in the affected areas. Hair and nail growth can change, either increasing or decreasing. There is no known cure for CRPS, but there are treatments that can control pain and improve symptoms.
