Ask the Expert: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

with Michael Stanton-Hicks, MD


Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is as bad as it sounds — severe, spreading chronic pain with redness, fluctuating skin temperature, and sometimes changes in body hair and nail growth. These issues make it hard for most patients to use their affected arm or leg, the body parts that are most often impacted.

As if that’s not enough, CRPS is not widely known by many doctors and is not well understood, so it is often misdiagnosed and many patients receive the wrong treatments or no treatment at all.

Take this opportunity and have your questions answered by our specialist, Michael Stanton-Hicks, MD who will discuss the treatment options for CRPS, different techniques to help you manage the pain and how best to communicate your experience of pain to others.
