Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a complicated condition that is not yet fully understood. CRPS is chronic pain that usually continues after a seemingly minor injury but the pain is not in proportion with the original injury. CRPS often affects the arms or legs and you may feel like the arm or leg is persistently in pain for no reason at all. The pain may be localized to one of the limbs or seem to “jump” from limb to limb.
The research into CRPS has shown that the cause of CRPS related pain is a neurological condition in which the brain continues to transmit pain signals to an area even after the injury has healed.
