Have you injured a toe or a finger, just to have your whole extremity flare up in pain? Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition affecting one of the limbs (arms, legs, hands, or feet), almost always after an injury or trauma to that limb. CRPS is believed to be caused by damage to the nervous system, and is defined by prolonged or excessive pain, and changes in skin color, temperature, and/or swelling in the affected area.
Currently there is no single medical test to confirm CRPS. Its diagnosis is based on your medical history, signs and symptoms. No one treatment for CRPS has gained popularity, although physical rehabilitation is recommended.The Feldenkrais Method is a modern approach to CRPS pain relief without drugs, surgery, or injection. I have treated dozens of people with this problem and had excellent results. Sick of your chronic regional pain? Consider the Feldenkrais Method to treat your CRPS comfortably and easily.
