Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, is a painful disorder that is a result of a malfunctioning nervous system. Particularly, the autonomic nervous system is affected. This is the portion of the nervous system that monitors injury sites, which is why RSD/CRPS tends to develop after a traumatic incident or injury. RSD/CRPS causes sufferers to experience hypersensitivity and increased pain in reaction to a stimulus, or sometimes no stimulus at all. RSD/CRPS is notoriously difficult to control and there are often no good alternatives, however, at Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, we offer several treatment approaches, some of which are new – Stem Cell Treatment for RSD/CRPS is one of them.
