RSD Leg Injury
Michigan and Co-Counsel Nationwide
Living with an RSD leg injury can mean dealing with severe, ongoing pain. RSD is a chronic neuro-inflammatory disorder – a physical, chronic condition. It may take valuable time to obtain an accurate diagnosis of RSD syndrome in the leg, knee or hip. The condition is considered rare but can affect anyone. The distinctive signs and symptoms can come and go, and change over time. Managing the physical, financial and social challenges of this chronic condition is often overwhelming. Sufferers need information from healthcare providers and non-profit organizations on how to face these challenges and lead fulfilling lives. They may also benefit from legal advice if their RSD leg symptoms were the result of an injury caused by negligence, a car accident or medical malpractice. With decades of fighting for those who are suffering, our law firm can stand beside patients who are facing the continual pain associated with this condition.
Leg Injuries from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome
When intense leg pain does not improve with healing, RSDS may be the culprit. Leg injuries from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome can appear after a minor or a significant injury – such as a bone fracture or a knee surgery. The syndrome normally begins with persistent pain and may lead to disability. Improvements require proactive treatment to enhance functioning and reduce pain. Additional symptoms that vary in severity by the individual include:
- Discomfort caused by the lightest touch
- Abnormal leg swelling and skin color changes
- Reduced leg strength and range of motion
- Unusual hair growth and sweating on the leg
