While this model is unlikely to be suitable to address all questions, it is our hope that this or similar approaches may allow fundamental biological and therapeutic discoveries to be made by combining experimental investigations with standard clinical care. No pain had ever indicates the reaching of the border of the hyperalgesic area. This is an area where more research is needed with regard to the course of the disease, residual symptoms, and long-term functional outcomes. Gabapentin and range of motion exercises were continued.

CRPS is notoriously difficult to treat given the poorly understood mechanisms underlying the initiation of the syndrome, which is thought to be related to sustained sympathetic nervous system activation [ 1 ]. Signs and Symptoms Pain The pain symptoms are usually described as burning pain, out of proportion to the injury or disease state. Continuing pain disproportionate. How important is this topic for clinical practice? They were con- During the whole period of testing, all patients were lying nected to the skin via conductor paste, 1 cm apart in the comfortably on an adjustable couch, in a quiet room. The comparative sample consists of these articles. Patient presentation with superficial radial nerve entrapment Image courtesy of Andrea Trescot, MD The radial nerve arises from the posterior cord of the brachial plexus, spirals around the humerus, and then descends down the humerus to the elbow.
The discoloration usually presents as redness, but may also be pale, gray or blushish cyanotic. Must report at least one symptom in each of the four following categories: Continuing pain, which is disproportionate to any inciting event. The DASH outcome measure: Swelling is usually the first physical sign in patients with RSD. Neurosci Lett ; Some people may be particularly susceptible to certain entrapment neuropathies because of a congenital narrowing of a tunnel or because of thickening of a fascia or an aberrant location of a fascial structure.
