RSD, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, describes a form of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Both RSD and CRPS are chronic conditions that cause severe burning pain that effects the arms, legs, hands, or feet. There are often some changes to bones and skin, excessive sweating, tissue swelling and extreme sensitivity to touch, also known as allodynia.

RSD is sometimes called Type I CRPS, which is triggered by tissue injury without nerve injury, while Type II CRPS refers to cases where a high-velocity impact occurred at the site and is clearly associated with nerve injury. RSD is unusual in that it affects the nerves, skin, muscles, blood vessels and bones at the same time.

Some common therapies to reduce the symptoms of CRPS include:

  • Physical Rehabilitation
  • Desensitisation
  • Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs
  • Anti-Convulsants
  • Tricyclic Antidepressants
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation
  • Psychological Support

Our mission is to help patients to return to work, improve their quality of life, reduce dependence on medication and healthcare providers, and avoid persistent injuries.
