Ketamine Infusion Therapy for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is “a chronic (lasting greater than six months) pain condition that most often affects one limb (arm, leg, hand, or foot) usually after an injury.” Also sometimes referred to as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), CRPS is categorized into two types: CRPS-I occurs after any form of trauma, particularly a fracture or soft tissue lesion, while CRPS-II occurs after nerve damage. It is estimated that 200,000 people in the US have been diagnosed with CRPS.
CRPS is incredibly painful, debilitating, and impacts every area of a person’s life. Growing research suggests ketamine infusion therapy can provide immense relief for people suffering with CRPS.
