Complex Regional Pain SyndromeIntroduction Complex regional pain syndrome is a pain condition that has been recognized under different names since its initial recognition during the Civil War. According to Rho et al. (2002), Weir Mitchell first described the pattern of symptoms and clinical signs of this condition in the Civil War victims who suffered from burning pain after severe limb injury. This pain syndrome was called causalgia during the civil war and since then multiple terminology has been used to describe this condition including reflect sympathetic dystrophy (RDS), causalgia, Sudek atrophy and shoulder-hand syndrome. The current terminology for this condition characterized by intense severe burning pain is complex regional pain...The end:
