    What is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

    Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a chronic pain condition that can affect any area of the body, but often affects an arm or a leg. (PubMed Health). Doctors aren’t sure what causes it. In certain people, the sympathetic nervous system can play a role in the pain, whereas in other cases CRPS is triggered in the immune system which then leads to discoloration, temperature changes, and swelling in the affected area.

    Types of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

    There are two types of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome- Type 1 formerly known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and Type 2 formerly known as causalgia.

    CRPS

    The symptoms are different in each case. I’ve had clients with no discoloration but with swelling and intense pain. In other cases, my clients have experienced abnormal hair growth patterns and temperature changes but no swelling. The symptoms of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome can migrate to the opposite limb or other body parts. It often worsens over time. Dealing with these extraordinary diagnoses often leads to anxiety and depression.

    CRPS and RSD In Light of Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act

    There is a significant amount of litigation in Pennsylvania Work Comp cases regarding CRPS and RSD. Why? Well, doctors don’t often agree on what set of symptoms must manifest in order for the diagnosis to be made. Another area of dispute is how to treat it once it is diagnosed. Some CRPS and RSD doctors will try ketamine infusions and blocks and others will prescribe medications and activity modification. We have had clients who tried ketamine and it helped them significantly, and others didn’t get great results. It’s a case by case basis. It is certainly a very contentious area of medicine which spills into our PA Work Comp landscape, as well as the personal injury world.

    "I recently had a work related injury and was receiving Workers' Compensation (medical benefits only). Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."
