Painful: Crps is a poorly understood disorder characterized by significant pain, more than should be present after an injury, typically in the hand or foot. There is often swelling, sweating, color and temperature abnormalities and sensitivity to touch. It is thought to be a problem of the sympathetic nervous system - the nerves that regulated blood pressure, heart rate and blood vessels.

Nerve disorder: Some times an injury turns the nervous system into over-drive. Things that should not be painful are! getting care sooner from someone who lnows what can help is best. I tell my patients who suffer from crps to keep using the affected extremity as normally as possible despite the pain. This really helps normalize things.

CRPS: Complex regional pain syndrome (crps) is a form of chronic pain that usually affects extremity. Crps typically develops after an injury, surgery, but the pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.
