Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
CRPS Lawyers in San Jose – Dial (800) 900-0863 Today!
When you suffer a
personal injury – even one that you consider to be slight or non-debilitating –
you can probably expect that the worst of the pain will come first. There
is a condition, however, that makes victims of injuries experience pain
in an unfamiliar, shocking way, as it seems to worsen over time, even
after the wound heals completely.
Known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or reflex sympathetic dystrophy
(RSD) syndrome, this condition is estimated to affect around 200,000 people
in the United States every year. And yet, research on the subject is somewhat
limited and some medical professionals actually discount it as a form
Our San Jose CRPS attorneys at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP recognize
that CRPS is a very real problem for people all across the country. The
sensation of worsening, chronic pain around the site of an old injury
can become completely debilitating, preventing you from performing workplace
and day-to-day functions. If you have been injured due to someone else’s
negligence and now are feeling symptoms of CRPS, please do not hesitate to
contact our firm and let us know what is going on.
Symptoms and Treatments for CRPS
Although we all know what pain feels like, it can be incredibly difficult
to describe a specific type or source of pain to another person. Perhaps
this paradoxical vagueness is what makes it troublesome for people suffering
from RSD or CRPS to get their physician to recognize their condition as
a real, ongoing problem.
People with CRPS often describe symptoms similar to or including:
- Burning sensation
- High sensitivity to touch
- Change in wound color
- Muscle or bone mass loss
- Disability of joint or extremity
- Near-predictable cycle of pain
- Hair loss at the area
- Emotional distress
What frustrates our team of personal injury lawyers in San Jose when we
hear about people not getting the treatment they need is that such treatment
does exist. Whether medical professionals want to accept your CRPS as real
or not, there are options available that could help you find relief, immediately
and as years go by. The downside is that many of these treatments are
extensive and expensive. To protect yourself and your finances from high
costs, you may have to hold the person who caused your injury accountable
Treatments that may help you with CRPS include:
- Prescription medication regimens
- Temperature therapy and rehabilitation
- Physical therapy sessions
- Neurology diagnoses and treatments
