In brief: CRPS treatment

Some medications are used for IV infusion for crps.
The most common medications might be Lidocaine and ketamine.

In brief: It's an intravenous

Infusion of pooled immunoglobulin from 1, 000 people.
It's mainly used to treat immunodeficiency, autoimmune condition and acute infection. Its use in chronic pain may be experimental in nature. Perhaps the big medical centers in san diego administer this infusion. Also consider hypnotherapy, acupuncture, magnetic therapy for pain. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/intravenous_immunoglobulin.
