Though it may sound absurd, it is true that improvement, as well as remission of the complex regional pain syndrome, can be possible if the treatment can be administered at the right juncture which is normally within the first 3 to 4 weeks of the first symptoms. The complex regional pain syndrome treatment is dependent on the intensity and type of the pain. Though there is a wide array of medications used for CRPS treatment, physical therapy is one of the most effective ways of treating this disorder. Your physiotherapist may also advise you to apply heat and cold therapy, topical analgesics and learn biofeedback therapy to help the condition. But the RSD treatment comprising of gentle yet guided exercising of the affected area can help in reducing the pain and improving the range of movements and strengths. But it has to be kept in mind that the earlier the treatment is administered, the better it is. One treatment plan cannot work for all suffering from complex regional pain syndrome and therefore the physiotherapist would thoroughly evaluate all the conditions before administering any RSD treatment. But the primary aim of all treatments is to restore the full function of the affected part of the body by relieving the pain and when you rely mostly on physical therapy rather than different classes of medicines, you can get effective results without any side effects thereby reducing the chances of any complications.
