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 of hypochondria.

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 through litigation.

Treatments that may help you with CRPS include:

  • Prescription medication regimens
  • Temperature therapy and rehabilitation
  • Physical therapy sessions
  • Neurology diagnoses and treatments
