Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Compensation Claims for Chronic Pain & CRPS

Severe Pain Condition

Complex regional pain syndrome or CRPS is a condition associated with a physical injury. The condition is recognised by the medical profession if not entirely understood. It is believed that a pain trigger occurs but does not shut down as would happen normally during the course of a recovery.

The chronic pain usually affects an arm or a leg and typically develops after an injury, an operation, a stroke or a heart attack. The pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.

Sudek’s Atrophy and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy are names previously ascribed to this type of condition.

Pain Condition Claims

Insurance companies can be understandably sceptical of Claimants who develop this condition because it results in a level of disability which is often significant beyond what would might be envisaged as normally arising from what may have been a relatively innocuous injury. In many CRPS cases there is also a psychological overlap or background to further complicate the scenario. However, there are some physical signs associated with the condition which may be capable of being demonstrated over and above witness testimony about the enduring pain.

Signs & Symptoms

Abnormal hair and/or nail growth
Skin temperature changes
