Scientists Find New Link in Solving the Puzzle of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome | eOrthopod.com

Sometimes after trauma (even minor trauma) to human tissue, a chronic pain condition develops. Once called i> reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), this syndrome is now referred to as complex regional pain syndrome ( CRPS). With CRPS, the pain generated is greater than expected for the degree of tissue trauma that has been sustained.

Reporting on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome From Start to Finish | eOrthopod.com

Every illness, disease, or medical condition has what we call a natural history. The natural history describes what typically happens for that patient with a particular problem. Natural history may include how quickly the disease advances or progresses. It also includes what signs and symptoms develop at each stage.

Acupuncture & CRPS

CRPS, also known as RSD, is a disease that causes chronic pain. At this time, there is no known cure for CRPS or RSD. Common treatments for CRPS include a combination of physical and drug therapy. However, RSD cases are highly individualized and in many cases conventional therapies and medications show little or no results. If the therapies that have been tested are not alleviating any of the symptoms of CRPS, physicians and patients may turn to alternative forms of treatment, such as acupuncture.

1) Researcher at University of Toronto maps areas of the brain between health and disease afflicted subjects to find the areas of the brain that are inactive in those with disease. Through deep brain stimulation with electrodes they can recalibrate the activity in the brain to resolve the symptoms. See TedX talk here.

Stroke: Can the brain 'rewire' itself to aid recovery?

Trimming the whiskers of mice after a stroke seems to create space in the brain for rewiring and shortens time to recover use of the affected limb.
