Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome

When pain becomes persistent and chronic it can lead to maladaptive brain and immune responses. This may result in a cluster of other symptoms controlling temperature, blood supply and sweating. In addition altered movement behaviour and fear of movement can re-enforce poor movement and lead to secondary problems such as ongoing pain, weakness and reduced independence. Neuro Physiotherapy involves education, self-management and sensorimotor learning exercises to develop new strategies that aim to gain a greater repertoire of functional movement.
