Although not particularly common, some people may develop a condition known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) after sustaining an injury. This condition affects the nerves around the injured area, causing painful sensations and other serious symptoms that can limit mobility and reduce the quality of life. However, while this condition can be managed to a certain extent, treatment costs associated with complex regional pain syndrome are often prohibitively expensive without financial assistance.
If you or someone you love has developed CRPS after sustaining an injury caused by another person’s negligent or reckless conduct, we may be able to help you file a claim for compensation from the party at fault.

Treatment Options for CRPS
Complex regional pain syndrome can be managed but not cured, and it is most effective if the treatment is started as soon as possible. The following treatments options may be available for someone suffering from this condition:
- Pain medication
- Antidepressants and other mood medications
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Graded motor imagery treatments
- Surgically-implanted spinal cord stimulators
- Interrupting nerves through surgery, use of chemicals, or radio-frequencies
- Medicated creams
- Relaxation training and psychotherapy
- Amputation of the affected area
Sadly, these treatment options can be expensive and may be too much for a household to handle financially. However, a personal injury lawsuit may be able to secure the compensation you need to cover these expenses.
Dealing with the treatment costs of complex regional pain syndrome can prove overwhelming for many households.
