Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Market Share and Key Trends 2016-2026

Complex Regional Pain syndrome (CRPS), which is also known as “reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome” is an uncommon kind of chronic pain condition characterized by severe pain and inflammation. CRPS develops after an injury, stroke or surgery and the pain is associated with the severity of the initial injury. CRPS is most common in people of age group 20-35 and more common in women than men. CRPS is also observed in children due to their injuries. Excluding the severe pain the other symptoms for CRPS include swelling and stiffness in joints, changes in the growth of nails, burning sensation and skin changes in appearance and temperature. Emotional stress can also trigger CRPS and heighten the pain sensations in an individual.

The complex regional pain syndrome is basically of two types according to the National Health Service (NHS) U.K, CRPS 1 also called reflex sympathetic dystrophy, it is an unknown condition resulting from the injury of limb which can also be related to genetics hence, likely to be a hereditary disorder. CRPS 2 is an extreme severe painful response to peripheral nerve injury but the pain does not migrate from the original site of injury unlike CRPS 1. Diagnosis of CRPS depends upon the individual’s medical history and symptoms as there is no single diagnostic test for it. The incidence rates reveal that female are three times more affected than male and occurs in the age over 60. According to a study conducted in U.K, 1 in 3,800 people develop CRPS each year.
