Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Information Page


What research is being done?

NINDS-supported scientists are studying new approaches to treat CRPS and intervene more aggressively to limit the symptoms and disability associated with the syndrome.  For example, researchers hope to better understand how CRPS develops by studying immune system activation and peripheral nerve injury. Researchers also hope to identify specific cellular and molecular changes in sensory nerve cells following peripheral nerve injury.  Identifying these mechanisms could provide targets for new drug therapies that could improve recovery following peripheral nerve injury and nerve cell regeneration.
