CRPS/RSD: Ketamine Infusion Therapy
According to American RSD Hope, CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) formerly known as RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) affects about 200,000 men, women and children in the United States and is a very painful form of chronic pain. CRPS strikes victims from 1 to 101, but the bulk of patients contract the disease in their 30s or 40s. Women are more likely to suffer from CRPS, statistics show about 75% women to 25% men.
CRPS is an exceptionally frustrating disease for the actual cause is not entirely known. Symptoms vary with the key symptom being intense pain, often out of proportion to the original injury. This pain increases over time verses getting better. Even if the original injury is healed the brain does not recognize the improvement and continues to receive pain signals from the malfunctioning nerves. This pain “loop” is like a never ending cycle with little relief in site. To complicate matters more, this cycle of pain often causes pathological changes in the body, including tissue swelling, joint stiffness, burning sensation, changes in skin appearance, and texture, increased sensitivity to touch, and decreased mobility.
