Early CRPS of the right hand:
Clearly visible signs include swelling, red color and a shiny skin.
As the disease progresses some of these visible signs can partially or completely disappear while pain may persist unabated.
There are currently eight major concepts about CRPS etiology.
4. No other diagnosis can better explain the signs and symptoms.
There is a desperate need for further research into the treatment of CRPS
Our proposed study has 2 specific aims:
4 evaluation sessions and 10 treatment sessions with each subject
Subjects must be at least 18 years of age with diagnosed CRPS following the recently updated Budapest criteria
