RSD/CRPS and Quality of Life
Being told you or a loved one has RSD/CRPS can be emotionally taxing to say the least. While there is plenty of reason for concern many people get overly frightened and that only makes things worse. No one is in the best frame of mind to make decisions about their health care, or anything else for that matter, when they are scared. Plus activating the flight or fright system really does worsen this condition. At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA we try to focus on treating the source of your RSD/CRPS while also quieting down the sympathetic system. In addition to blocks, medications, therapy and the like focusing on what actions can be taken to improve quality of life can have a major impact.
