We offer a specialist service for patients with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). This is a debilitating condition with intractable arm or leg pain that is often difficult to diagnose and treat.
We provide rapid assessment of early cases (onset of less than six months) and use functional restoration physiotherapy often combined with nerve blocks to allow manipulation without pain. We also provide neuropathic pain medication advice and palmidronate infusions. This can improve pain and even more importantly improve the ability to use the limb more normally.
