Complex Regional Pain Syndrome / Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), or Causalgia, Sudeck’s Atrophy and Shoulder-Hand Syndrome, is a condition that involves abnormalities of the sympathetic nervous system, which controls blood flow and sweat glands (temperature).
CRPS usually occurs in middle-aged patients (40-60 years old), but it can also affect children and the elderly, and it is more commonly found in women than men.
