What is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?
Many patients know that they are experiencing pain but are unfamiliar with complex regional pain syndrome. CRPS affects the limbs including the arms, hands, legs, and feet. It may start in one area and then extend throughout the affected limb. Patients notice pain along with a change in the color or temperature of their skin. It can be caused by an injury to a limb that did not heal normally. There are 2 kinds of CRPS:
CRPS Type 1: No known nerve injury by evidence of changes in blood flow and lowering of motor ability in the limb
CRPS Type 2: A known nerve injury with evidence of blood flow changes and lowering of motor ability
