At Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX, we provide treatments for patients who suffer from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Causing severe pain in the limbs, complex regional pain syndrome may happen after surgery, injury, or a major health problem, such as a heart attack or stroke. Though the exact cause of CRPS is unclear, doctors think it happens because of damage to the nervous system and inflammation. Patients who suffer from this condition tend to experience swelling, chronic burning in the affected area, stiffness, and changes in skin color and temperature. Symptoms associated with CRPS are chronic and may last for several months or years. With years of experience, our compassionate pain management physicians want to help you overcome painful symptoms caused by complex regional pain syndrome. Schedule an appointment at our state-of-the-art facility to learn more about the innovative treatments we offer.
