The Devastating Impact Of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
What starts as a minor injury to muscles, bones or nerves does not follow a normal health path and becomes a serious neurological issue that interferes with the sympathetic nervous system. Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) can be catastrophic.
Pain moves through the entire body as victims are left sensitive to touch and hot and cold sensations. More catastrophic cases results in the stoppage of blood flow, increasing the risk of amputation.
Treatment exists for CRPS in the form of vital medication and rehabilitation. Nerve blocks provide relief as do surgeries to specific nerves. However, medical care is costly and insurance companies often contest these injury claims. They also question the very existence of CRPS or RSD.
For those suffering CRPS, the pain felt is rarely in proportion to the original injury. Mild cases may last for weeks. With others, pain continues for years, if not an entire lifetime. The emotional impact can be devastating, especially when insurance companies refuse to provide the compensation our clients deserve.
