Nerve injury or irritation is a common cause of chronic pain. Even when an area of the body seems to be recovered from an injury, or no injury has occurred, the nerves can still cause pain and functional issues. Complex regional pain syndrome, or CRPS, is a chronic pain condition from nerve dysfunction. The cause is not always known, and there is not a cure, but complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) treatment can offer relief.
At Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA, we work with patients suffering from CRPS to find a treatment plan to offer relief. This chronic pain condition is most common in the limbs and extremities, including arms, hands, legs and feet. The symptoms can occur and remain after an injury to the area or for no apparent reason. These symptoms include:
- Localized pain or burning sensation
- Stiff or swollen joints
- Skin is warmer or colder to the touch
- The affected area is highly sensitive, even a light touch can cause extreme pain
- Reduced mobility in the limb or appendage
CRPS can come on suddenly and symptoms can last for years. It is more common in young adults in their 20s or 30s but can occur at any age. Our team helps patients manage symptoms for reduced pain and improved mobility through complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) treatment.
Diagnosing and Treating CRPS
Chronic nerve pain conditions, like CRPS, can be frustrating for patients. Many doctors have a limited understanding of these complex conditions that may not stem from any specific medical condition. Our spinal and nerve specialists at Hanowell Spine Clinic can diagnose CRPS and offer a personalized treatment plan to help minimize symptoms. This may include injection therapy and other non-invasive CRPS treatments to improve your mobility and quality of life.
