Complex regional pain syndrome

If you suffer from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), you know the challenges of experiencing chronic, severe pain. One of the common symptoms of this condition is a continuous, intense pain that is out of proportion to the severity of an injury. With CRPS, the pain gets worse rather than better over time.

CRPS most often affects one of the arms, legs, hands or feet. Often the pain spreads to the entire arm or leg. Other typical symptoms of CRPS include dramatic changes in the color and temperature of the skin over the affected limb or body part, accompanied by intense burning pain, skin sensitivity, sweating and swelling. The cause of this condition is unknown.

Symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome are often treatable. The experts at the Pain Center can help you with the most advanced pain treatments available.
