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.

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.
