What is CRPS?
CRPS represents an abnormal response that magnifies the effects of an injury.
Some people respond excessively to a trigger that causes no problem for other people, such as what is observed in people who have food allergies. Peripheral nerve abnormalities found in individuals with CRPS usually involve the small unmyelinated and thinly myelinated sensory nerve fibers (axons) that carry pain messages and signals to blood vessels.
The Patient may not experience all symptoms
Please refer to the clinical guidelines we follow in order to diagnose CRPS:
Lidocaine and Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Why IV Therapy?
Lidocaine and Ketamine Infusion Therapy provides pain relief where other treatments often fail
Since 1999 there has been an escalating rise in the number of opioid prescriptions for chronic pain to include morphine, hydromorphone, fentanyl and oxycodone. Despite their frequent use, opioids are only partially effective for short term pain relief and have highly variable effectiveness for long term relief of pain.
Lidocaine and Ketamine Infusions offer a safe, inexpensive, opioid-sparing and easily administered treatment with very few side effects.
