What is CRPS

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, commonly referred to as CRPS, is a chronic pain condition that occurs in the extremities. CRPS is usually developed after a traumatic injury. The symptoms for CRPS are usually a burning or stinging sensation in the effected limb, but can also include changes in the skin, hair, joints, and muscles in the area. If you believe that you are experiencing CRPS, contact Elihu Institute for Pain Management to schedule a consultation.

Treatment

At Elihu Institute for Pain Management, we have the most advanced treatment options available to help you manage your CRPS pain. Our physicians will work with you to create a comprehensive treatment plan perfectly tailored to your specific needs. When conservative treatment with medication and physical therapy is not enough, we offer advanced therapies to find the root of your pain. In addition to conservative management, our treatment options include Sympathetic Nerve Blocks, Epidural Steroid Injections, and Spinal Cord Stimulators.

Sympathetic Nerve Blocks

Sympathetic nerve blocks have been shown to provide long lasting relief of pain. The doctor will inject a numbing agent into the lower back, near the spine. This prevents certain pain signals from being transferred by “blocking” the nerve. Studies have shown that these nerve blocks have been incredibly effective at relieving pain and improving the quality of life for those living with CRPS.

Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural steroid injections are commonly used to relieve pain in the back, arms, and legs caused by damage in spinal nerves. The procedure is minimally invasive and only involves a small injection of steroid into the epidural space in the spine. If your CRPS is caused by damaged nerves, an epidural steroid injection will provide lasting relief.

Spinal Cord Stimulators

Spinal cord stimulators deliver a low voltage electrical pulse into the spinal cord to block pain signals. The spinal cord stimulator is implanted near the spine in a minimally invasive procedure. Consult one of our physicians to see if a spinal cord stimulator is right for you.
