Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CPRS) is a disorder of the legs or arms that involves swelling, pain, limited limb movements, and changes to bones and skin. Also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), this condition has an unknown cause that may occur after an injury to the area in question such as a fracture or from post-surgery. There’s also a theory that inflammation and alteration of pain perception in the central nervous system play important roles.
The treatment involves multiple approaches such as medications, physical and occupational therapy, psychological treatments, and neuromodulation.
Chronic pain in San Antonio is rampant and thousands of adults and the elderly are suffering from different types of pain.
