Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Jed Dietrich, Esq. and His Elite Team of Lawyers at the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. Fight to Obtain the Best Result for People Suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in Buffalo, New York.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is an extremely rare medical condition that is characterized by intense, localized excruciating pain and/or burning. CRPS often results when a severe injury to the victim’s bone, muscle or nerve does not heal properly. Initially, the disorder impacts an infected arm or leg and can then travel to other regions of the body.
As a chronic pain disorder, CRPS can greatly interfere with victims’ daily activities or even the ability to accomplish common tasks. A person with CRPS can suffer debilitating pain, often causing them to miss work. Unfortunately, CRPS diagnoses are not easily confirmed through an objective test. The condition is extremely difficult for medical experts to treat and overcome, which may be frustrating for both victims and their doctors. In severe cases, CRPS victims may never recover and will suffer a long-term disability. We recognize that CRPS can result in significant pain and suffering. Between the costly hospital bills, lost wages and reduced ability to earn wages, the continuing consequences on those suffering from CRPS and their families can be demoralizing. The last thing victims suffering from CRPS need is to be bothered by legal issues.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome can be caused by physical injuries, psychological trauma or even certain illnesses. More often than not, traumatic events such as car accidents or falls from a height are the root behind this condition. The traumatic event is believed to cause sensitivity and stimulate the nerves of the injured body part. The injured tissues raise sensitivity levels in adjoining nerves, which often causes hyper-excitability.
CRPS occurs when the victim’s nervous system falsely believes that a particular body part is still injured, even after the injury has already healed. The pain condition is chronic, meaning it lasts more than 6 months, and often affects previously injured limbs. Doctors and other medical experts believe that CRPS results from malfunction of, or impairment to, the central and peripheral nervous systems. The brain and the spinal cord make up the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system entails nerve signaling from the central nervous system to other parts of the body.
Typically, there are two different types of CRPS, including:
- Type I: consists of chronic pain that did not result from nerve damage. This type may be caused by slip and falls, car accidents or surgeries.
- Type II: involves direct damage to the nerve that causes the condition, which commonly occurs after an injection or surgical error.

The symptoms of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome often vary in their duration and acuteness. In cases where CRPS arises following an injury, the pain experienced may seem excessive when compared to the severity of the injury. Even with injuries involving a mere finger or toe, the pain can rapidly spread to the whole arm or leg. There are even instances where the pain moves to the opposite extremity. Additionally, the symptoms of CRPS may be intensified by emotional stress.
Symptoms of CRPS often include:
- Overall decreased ability to move the impacted body part;
- Violent muscle spasms;
- Chronic and continuous pain, that intensifies over time;
- Skin discoloration, which often includes purple, red, pale or blotchy skin;
- Changes to the texture of the skin;
- Changes in hair or nail growth, which can be no hair growth or rapid hair growth;
- Touch hypersensitivity;
- Swelling or inflammation of joints or limbs;
- Elevated or decreased temperatures of the affected area; and
- Amplified or irregular sweating.

Both early diagnosis and treatment of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome are vital in preventing additional disability, debilitation and progression of symptoms. Regretfully, no specific diagnostic tests are available for CRPS and an early diagnosis when symptoms are less severe can be troublesome.
CRPS is a neurological disorder, as such there is no simple cure. Treatment generally involves multiple approaches such as:
- Physical therapy, occupational or rehabilitation therapy;
- Mirror box therapy;
- Topical analgesics;
- Pain killers;
- Sympathetic nerve blocks;
- Stimulation of the spinal cord; and
- Surgical sympathectomy.
Psychological treatment and support are often used in combination with the above.
