Michigan and Co-Counsel Nationwide
Physicians who are recognized as CRPS specialists have experience diagnosing and treating this chronic condition. They can eliminate the possibility of other pain disorders, such as arthritis, during a comprehensive examination. Physicians who specialize in CRPS may be neurologists or pain management specialists. They will often order testing as they confirm the diagnosis and plan a course of treatment. Patients and their physicians will need to coordinate with therapists and other healthcare providers to ensure that they are receiving proactive care to reduce pain and dysfunction. A physician who is not familiar with the syndrome may not provide a prompt diagnosis and plan for CRPS treatment, because no one test can identify the illness. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome specialists approach each sufferer’s care individually. They may refer you to additional physicians, such as a bone specialist or a dermatologist, to address specific symptoms that arise. The Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Association of America is an organization that offers additional information on medical specialists at www.rsds.org.
