Atlanta Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Treatment
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta is a trusted leader in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) treatment. CRPS is a chronic pain condition that most often affects one of the limbs (arms, legs, hands or feet). It is believed to be caused by damage to or malfunction of the peripheral and central nervous systems and usually occurs after an injury or trauma to the affected limb. Our double board certified Interventional Spine physicians, pain specialists and orthopedic specialists are experts when it comes to treating this complex, chronic and painful condition. Using the most advanced and minimally invasive treatments, we are able to help patients who suffer from CRPS find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms and return to an active, healthy lifestyle.
Symptoms of CRPS include prolonged and often severe pain in the arms, legs, hands or feet, a burning or tingling sensation in the affected limb, and increased sensitivity in the affected area. For some, the pain and other symptoms associated with CRPS is so intense that it is debilitating.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we take a comprehensive approach to treating CRPS that incorporates many treatment modalities including rest, rehabilitation therapy, medications and other interventional therapies. Our Physicians work collaboratively with other physicians, Chiropractors and other ancillary services to co-manage our patients with CRPS. In cases where conservative, non-surgical treatments have failed to provide relief, surgery may be considered. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we utilize the most minimally invasive surgical techniques possible to provide effective outcomes with fewer complications and a shorter recovery time.
