CRPS Q & A
What is CRPS?
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic condition that causes persistent pain, often in the arms and legs. CRPS often develops after a traumatic injury from an auto accident, or fall, or following surgery. You may also struggle with CRPS-related pain after a stroke or heart attack.
The cause of the condition isn’t well understood but it may relate to damage in the peripheral or central nervous systems due to trauma.
What are the symptoms of CRPS?
CRPS symptoms can vary from person to person and may change over time. Typically, those with CRPS can experience issues like:
- Joint stiffness
- Muscle spasms
- Muscle weakness
- Burning or throbbing pain
- Changes in skin temperature and color
As a result of pain and stiffness, CRPS can interfere with your overall mobility and ability to function properly.
You may also notice changes in your skin’s texture, with affected areas becoming thin and shiny in appearance. Your limbs may also feel cold and your nails may not grow normally. These issues may be irreversible.
Treating CRPS in the earliest stages is important for preventing permanent health complications in the future.
What treatments are available for CRPS?
While there’s no cure for CRPS, the staff at Align Healing Center can help you effectively manage pain and make necessary lifestyle modifications to help you cope with the condition.
After a careful evaluation of the severity of your pain and your existing health, the team at Align Healing Center develops a custom treatment plan tailored to your specific symptoms and health needs. Treatment may involve a combination of therapies to maximize your health and minimize your symptoms.
Gentle chiropractic adjustments can benefit your overall health and wellness by ensuring your body is in proper alignment. Healthy alignment is necessary to support all the major functions of your body and enhances your overall quality of life.
Koren Specific Technique (KST) may also be suggested where gentle, specific corrections to your spine, structural system, and other parts of your body are applied. Corrections are done while standing, sitting, moving, or lying down in order to locate the hidden stresses of your body that cause disease or overall physical, mental, or emotional malfunction associated with pain and weakness.
Laser therapy is also extremely useful in addressing the symptoms behind CRPS and providing instant relief to you.
Your nutritional makeup and diet can also influence your CRPS symptoms. The staff at Align Healing Center offers SpectraCell lab work and customized nutritional treatments to help you make better choices that prevent inflammation and further irritation of your nerves.
