CRPS responds best to treatment when you start it early. If you notice severe pain in a limb that doesn’t go away, no matter what you do, you should book an appointment at Lynx Healthcare for a possible CRPS diagnosis so you can start treatment right away and preserve the function of your limb.
The Lynx Healthcare team prioritizes nonoperative treatments to save you the time and costs of surgery. However, surgery is still necessary in some cases. Treatments for complex regional pain syndrome often involve:
Taking certain oral medications like pain relievers and antidepressants can improve CRPS symptoms like pain and inflammation.
Lynx Healthcare offers several injectable options for CRPS treatment, including anesthetic injections near affected nerves.
Spinal cord stimulation
Spinal cord stimulation is a highly effective treatment for CRPS. The team at Lynx Healthcare surgically places electrodes along your spinal cord to deliver gentle electrical pulses to the affected nerves.
Biofeedback helps you learn to relax your body to relieve pain, stiffness, and other CRPS symptoms.
Physical or occupational therapy
Physical and occupational therapy can help to relieve pain and improve mobility.
If you experience severe and ongoing pain in an arm, leg, hand, or foot, call Lynx Healthcare, or book an appointment online for a complex regional pain syndrome consultation today.
