CRPS Hand Injury
Michigan and Co-Counsel Nationwide
Are you suffering from a CRPS hand injury? If you have received a diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, you may be experiencing some or all of its symptoms in your hand, such as swelling, coldness, color changes, hypersensitivity, increased perspiration, changes to hair or nail growth, and mobility limitations. For some sufferers, CRPS hand injuries become chronic conditions, with pain traveling beyond their hands into the arms. Since there is currently no cure for the syndrome, treatment is focused on regaining hand functionality and reducing pain. Though CRPS in the hand can develop without a known injury, in the majority of the cases it appears after a trauma to the body. Common triggers are:
- Fractures, sprains, burns or bruises
- Limb immobilization, such as in a cast
- Surgical or medical procedures
Following the trauma or injury to the hand, the body reacts abnormally, with a magnified response from the nervous system. The result can be frequent or constant pain, as well as other signs of the disorder. At GorenLaw, our Michigan law practice areas include extensive expertise in CRPS law, with the ability to work on behalf of victims across the country.
