Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition in which an over abundant number of nerve impulses are sent to an affected site. It is thought that CRPS occurs as a result of dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous systems. There is no specific cause of CRPS, but it is rather a symptom of other factors together that triggers the symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome. This chronic pain condition most often affects one of the limbs, and there is no known cure for this condition. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are a trusted leader in complex regional pain syndrome treatment. Our double board certified interventional spine physicians, pain specialists, and orthopedic specialist are experts when it comes to treating this complex condition. We are able to help patients find long-term relief using the most personalized and minimally invasive treatment options possible.
Symptoms of CRPS vary from person to person, but one common symptom is continuous, intense pain that gets worse rather than better over time. Other symptoms include "burning" pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints, extreme pain from a minimal injury, decreased ability to move the affected body part, skin changes, and more. Because there is no cure for CRPS, the goal of treatment is relieving painful symptoms associated with the condition. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we take a comprehensive approach to treating CRPS. Our physicians work collaboratively with other physicians, chiropractors, and other ancillary services to find a treatment plan that effectively manages a patient's pain.
If you are suffering from CRPS, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta. You do not have to suffer through pain without effective relief.
