CRPS is an abnormal pain response to an injury or trauma that causes several of the body systems to be overly sensitive to pain and touch. CRPS can cause the nervous system to have difficulty detecting and sending pain signals, controlling temperature and swelling, and can impact on movement in the affected hand or limb.

CRPS is commonly treated in hand therapy and may involve desensitisation exercises and mirror therapy. Further information on CRPS and available treatment options is available via the links below:
