Complex Regional Pain Syndrome – Causes, Treatment & Therapies

A Fact Sheet- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
The Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is an unceasing pain condition that often affects one of the limbs (that can be arms, legs, hands, or feet), generally after an injury or trauma to that particular limb. Complex regional pain syndrome is believed to be caused due to damage, or malfunctioning of the peripheral and central nervous systems. The central nervous system encompasses the brain and spinal cord; whereas the peripheral nervous system includes the nerve signaling from the brain and the spinal cord to the other parts of the body. The Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is exemplified by prolonged or a chronic pain and mild or dramatic changes in the color of the skin, temperature or even swelling in the affecting area.

There are the two similar forms of the Complex regional pain syndrome, generally called CRPS- I and CRPS-II, having similar symptoms and treatments. The CRPS-II was previously called causalgia; it is also the term which is used for patients with corroborated nerve injuries. People without the confirmation of the nerve injury are classified under the category of CRPS-I, to validate and investigate the two different forms of the Complex regional pain syndrome.
The symptom of the complex regional pain syndrome differs in sternness and duration. According to the studies of the occurrence and prevalence of the disorder, it is observed that in most cases the symptoms are mild and individual recovers gradually over a period of time. In some cases, the individuals may not be able to recover and may undergo a long-term disability.

What Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome(RSD)?

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CPRS) is one of those syndromes which usually affect one or more extremities as well as any part of the body.  RSD still remains poorly understood and may go unrecognized. The best way to describe Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is in the terms of an injury to any nerve or soft tissue for which does not follow the normal healing pathway.
The severity of reflex sympathetic disorder does not appear to be dependent upon the magnitude of the injury. It is also considered that the injury can be so minor that the patient may not even recall an injury. Even experts find the cause difficult to understand.  One of the more confusing features of RSD is that the sympathetic nervous system seems to assume an abnormal function post injury. Early diagnosis of RSD is considered to be critical. If left undiagnosed or untreated, RSD can spread to all extremities making rehabilitation a more difficult task.

Mechanism Of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome

Diagnosis & Treatment Of RSD

If diagnosed early, a physician may suggest mobilization of the affected extremity utilizing physical therapy. There are no studies present showing the effect of RSD on the life span of the patient. In advance stages of RSD patients suffering from RSD can undergo psychosocial and psychiatric issues and may be completely incapacitated by the disease as well as exposing the patient to potentially addictive narcotics.
To make the initial diagnosis of RSD – a physician must first recognize that there are some features of RSD which are more distinctive of the syndrome than the others, and also the clinical diagnosis is established by placing multiple bits of the […]
