Complex Regional Pain


Complex regional pain syndrome can occur after an injury, sometimes even very minor ones. CRPS can sometimes also occur after a surgery. The hand, wrist, and upper extremity can sometimes have a very typical appearance. It is important to appropriately diagnose the problem and get appropriate treatment.


One of the treatment options for complex regional pain syndrome is performing what is called a stellate ganglion block. This can sometimes be helpful to diagnose and treat the problem.
