Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathy Dystrophy (RSD)

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), formerly known as Reflex Sympathy Dystrophy (RSD), is a chronic pain condition treated at the Center for Pain Management. We have pain centers in Indianapolis, Greenwood and Lafayette, Indiana. CRPS or RSD is a chronic condition often associated with arm pain, leg pain, hand pain and/or foot pain.

Learn More About Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathy Dystrophy (RSD)

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathy Dystrophy (RSD) can develop after a traumatic injury to a limb, or following surgery or immobilization. This chronic neuropathic pain can be caused by an abnormality of the sympathetic nervous system. CRPS or RSD symptoms may include severe burning pain; extreme hypersensitivity; changes in the skin such as redness, swelling or sweating; muscle spasms and restricted range of motion. Prolonged symptoms can cause a decrease in hair growth, osteoporosis, brittle nails and/or muscle atrophy.

Treatment for CRPS or RSD focuses on normalization of the nervous system response through sympathetic nerve block procedures, spinal cord stimulation and/or systemic infusions. Physical therapy for desensitization and gradual return to function is also indicated. Activities which increase pain and unnecessary immobilization can make the condition worse.
