Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a type of chronic or long-lasting pain that usually stems from an injury, surgery, heart attack, or stroke. In most cases, CRPS affects one arm, hand, leg, or foot but is most common in the hand. It often causes more pain than the initial injury or condition.

The team at Restore Health treats patients within two categories of CRPS:

Type 1

Type 1 CRPS happens after an injury or condition. It is associated with no direct nerve damage in the region.

Type 2

Type 2 CRPS comes from an injury that directly affected a nerve.
