Complex regional pain syndrome

This toolkit aims to support health care professions in supporting and managing people living with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). CRPS is a debilitating, painful condition in a limb, associated with sensory, motor, autonomic, skin and bone abnormalities and commonly arises after injury to that limb. However, there is no relationship to the severity of trauma, and in some cases there is no precipitating trauma at all. It usually affects one limb, but can in a minority of cases spread to involve additional limbs. General neuropathic guidelines may also be useful in managing this condition.
