Complex Regional Pain Syndrome: What’s New?

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) often causes serious impairments in activities of daily living and the ability to function. It can be a tremendous burden to patients and their families. There continues to be clinical confusion and misunderstanding about the syndrome due to its dramatic nature, limited knowledge of its mechanisms, and frequent lack of response to interventions. Research into CRPS has grown, although our understanding remains incomplete. Dr. Paul Christo, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, discusses CRPS and possible treatments.
