CRPS/RSD TREATMENT GUIDELINES
LIVING WITH RSDS
by Linda Lang an
GUIDELINES FOR DOCTORS AND PATIENTS
A huge committee of doctors,
researchers and experts in Holland worked tirelessly for 5 years
to write the standard treatment protocols for treating CRPS in
Holland. Now every Dutch patient can benefit from these very important
guidelines. Special thanks to Drs. Ilona Thomassen, of the Dutch
Patient Organization (Nederlandse Vereniging. van Post Traumatische
Dystrophy Patiënten) for supplying PARC with two Guidelines
for Doctors and Patients. She hopes they will help many people.
PARC congratulates the Dutch
on their wonderful achievement! Well done, Holland!
RSDSA has published the 4th edition of their guidelines:
Harden, N MD et al CRPS: Practical Diagnostic
and Treatment Guidelines 4th Edition Pain Medicine 2013
Guidelines contain the latest findings on graded
motor imagery and mirror therapy which have been proven to retrain
the brain. In CRPS there is cortical reorganization in the brain
which needs to be reversed thourgh therapy.
More guidelines have been published in UK and
