What is CRPS?

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a form of chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg. CRPS typically develops after an injury, a surgery, a stroke or a heart attack. The pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.

  • Chronic arm or leg pain develops after injury, surgery, stroke, or heart attack.
  • The exact cause of complex regional pain syndrome isn’t well understood but may involve abnormal inflammation or nerve dysfunction.
  • Complex regional pain is characterized by pain that is greater than would be expected from the injury that causes it.
  • Treatment usually consists of medications, heat or cold therapy, physical therapy, and biofeedback.

Premier Therapy Solutions CRPS Case Study

Dr. Corsa has helped me heal from a terrible case of CRPS. I am here to talk to you, offer guidance and answer any questions that you have. If you are in Florida and would like to meet me and see my healthy foot as well as photos of my foot when it had CRPS I will meet you at Dr. Corsa’s office.

There is so much scary and untrue and misleading information online about CRPS. I can tell you with certainty that along with Dr. Corsa and her wonderful team’s treatment plan my foot is healed. Also I received such careful, customized and caring treatment all along while I was healing. It was actually an incredible experience to have a doctor and her team put so much research, effort, energy and kindness into healing my foot.

I’m eternally grateful for Premier Therapy. I’m grateful for Dr. Corsa and for my foot’s ability to function and for my healing.

Best wishes,

Shelly Himmelrich
