Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Ketamine for CRPS Treatment

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), formerly Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a chronic pain condition that most often affects one limb (arms, legs, hands, or feet) usually after an injury. It is believed to be caused by damage to, or malfunction of the peripheral and central nervous systems making the sensation of pain much stronger than the pain associated with the original injury.
