Complex regional pain syndrome is an uncomfortable condition that usually affects an arm or leg. Although rare and not yet fully understood, researchers know it may develop after certain illnesses, traumatic injuries, or surgical procedures. Symptoms can vary from patient to patient, but often include:

  • Persistent burning sensations or throbbing pain in arm or leg
  • Swelling around the affected area
  • Heightened sensitivity to touch or cold
  • Unexplained changes in skin temperature, texture and/or color
  • Joint stiffness
  • Muscle loss, weakness or spasms

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or are unable to touch or move your arm or leg without severe discomfort, contact ORA. Emotional stress can worsen symptoms and if the condition is left untreated for an extended period of time, irreversible changes to the affected limb may occur.
