RSD Foot Injury
Michigan and Co-Counsel Nationwide
Persistent pain can be the first sign of an RSD foot injury. Symptoms may begin after the foot is traumatized or injured. The affected area may swell and have reduced strength or mobility. Sometimes RSD sufferers experience pain that spreads beyond the injured foot. It may move into the leg, for example. In advanced stages, the affected foot can become incapacitated. Sufferers need a team of healthcare providers working together to help them address symptoms, such as changes to foot color and temperature, or constant aching or burning pain. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are important to the treatment of an affected limb. As the syndrome advances, the foot may become stiffer and returning to a normal range of motion may be more difficult. Early diagnosis and treatment are vital to ensuring that the chronic syndrome is manageable. If your Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy foot injury symptoms are the result of an accident or medical malpractice in which others are negligent, GorenLaw can help. We understand the ongoing suffering and considerable expenses related to RSD, and we may be able to seek compensation on your behalf.
