Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a chronic pain condition. Patients experience constant burning pain in different parts of their body. At the Vita Head Neck & Facial Pain Relief Center, we focus on treating patients with constant facial, head and neck region pains.
CRPS can develop from an injury to the sympathetic nervous system and has been called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or Causalgia. Patients can develop CPRS after three significant traumas such as car accidents, surgeries or sports injuries. If long term head, TMJ and neck injuries are not resolved or treated properly, then potential to develop CRPS, increases.
The hallmark signs of Facial CRPS include:
CRPS is often misdiagnosed and hence ineffective treatments are offered. There is no cure for CPRS but if diagnosed in its early stages and treated properly, patients can achieve long remission periods.
At the Vita Pain Relief Center, we often diagnose CRPS and initiate therapy. Treatment considerations include nerve block injections, physiotherapy and pain management. Often, we also work with pain management specialists to administer specific nerve block injections.
The Vita Pain Relief Center is pioneering a study to determine positive treatment outcomes in patients with CRPS by measuring their skin temperature changes.
This is an objective study to prove the positive effects of our combined therapy including Atlas Orthogonal Therapy, Nerve Blocking, Physiotherapy and TMJ Therapy.
