Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Treatment

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome treatment is usually a combination of medication and therapies.  

Medication  

Doctors usually prescribe a number of medications to manage the symptoms of the condition. These include pain relievers, corticosteroids, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, sympathetic nerve-blocking medication, and bone loss medications.  

Therapies  

A number of therapies are shown to help improve the symptoms of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. These include physical therapy, heat therapy, mirror therapy, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), spinal cord stimulation, and biofeedback.  

The Use of Compression Garments 

Some evidence is showing that the use of compression garments can help in easing the pain including for conditions like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. This has something to do with the garments’ ability to reduce the inflammatory response. However, it is important to note that not all compression garments are created the same.  

If you’re looking for a compression garment to incorporate in your Complex Regional Pain Syndrome treatment, it is crucial to look for one that’s made of high-quality materials and comfortable enough to be worn most time of the day. Bioflect has a variety of compression garments you can choose from.
