Arm & Leg Pain Conditions

 

These are some of the conditions we treat but not all.

We treat PAIN.  All types of pain.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
CRPS

Overview:

This is a type of chronic, long-lasting, pain. In most cases, it develops in an arm or a leg that you have previously injured. With CRPS, you may have unexplained pain that won't go away. It may be severe, and it may spread.

Treatment:

Treatment for CRPS can involve physical therapy for your body and psychotherapy to help you deal with depression and anxiety. You may benefit from medications. A nerve block may help. You may benefit from a device such as a pump which can deliver medication directly into the fluid around your spinal cord as you need it. Your healthcare provider can create a plan that is right for you.

Phantom Limb Pain

Overview:

If you have lost a limb or another part of your body, you may feel painful sensations that seem to be coming from the missing part. This phenomenon is called "phantom pain." It is common among amputees. It can become a chronic problem for some people.

Treatment:

Treatment options may include medications, nerve stimulation and other therapeutic techniques. Your healthcare provider can create a care plan that is right for your needs.
