Specialized in Post Traumatic Dystrophy
A brief description
Post traumatic dystrophy is a chronic local pain after a trauma. It is always present.
Cause and consequence
The cause can be very insignificant as a minor strain or little impact. We see it more and more after operations and more often in a female than a male. CRPS can be a minor inconvenience but also severe handicapped situations. Why the body reacts in that way after such little impact is still unknown. It's not possible to stand on the affected leg. The affected arm can't be touched. Blood circulation is disturbed. May have a bad color. Over production of sweat and hair growth is also a symptom.
Most of the CRPS patients visit us with a referral from the Pain-Department of the Amphia Hospital. This department gives advice and prescriptions for medicine.
