Treatment & Diagnosis of CRPS

CRPS occurs when the nervous system malfunctions, sending pain signals to the brain that are out of proportion with the actual injury. This can cause a number of sudden symptoms to occur, including:

  • Severe, burning pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Changes in skin color
  • Changes in skin temperature

The good news is that CRPS can be managed with proper treatment. The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation clinic offers a wide range of cutting-edge services designed to help patients with CRPS find long-term relief, including:

  • Surgery: If your CRPS is caused by a structural problem, surgery may be the best option for treatment. Our surgeons are experts in treating CRPS and have extensive experience with minimally invasive procedures that can help reduce pain and improve function.
  • Physical therapy: Physical therapy is often one of the most important treatments for CRPS. Our specialists will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that will help reduce pain, improve movement and function, and promote overall wellness.
  • Pain management: Our team of experts can help you find relief from your CRPS-related pain with a variety of treatments, including medication, nerve blocks, and spinal cord stimulation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of surgery are available for CRPS?

There are two main types of surgery for CRPS: revascularization and sympathectomy.

  • Revascularization is a surgery aimed at restoring blood flow to the affected area. This may be done surgically or with an injection of special agents that help promote blood flow.
  • Sympathectomy is a surgery to remove part of the sympathetic nervous system. This is often done if the CRPS is caused by a problem with the sympathetic nervous system

When you schedule an appointment with The Physicians, your specialist will help you determine if surgery is the right option for you.

How common is CRPS?

CRPS is not a particularly common condition, but it is estimated that about 1-3 out of every 100,000 people will develop it. It can affect people of any age, but is most often seen in adults between the ages of 30 and 60. This is why it’s important to visit The Physicians for an accurate diagnosis.
