An injured person does not need to suffer a major or catastrophic injury to develop complex regional pain syndrome.

Usual Treatment for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
CRPS is a serious condition with known no cure. Foyle Legal has seen clients who do recover but so far there seems to be very little similarity between the people who have recovered. If you have CRPS you should get high quality medical treatment right away. If your CRPS is severe, you may never return to work.
The most enduring quality of CRPS is that the pain levels reported by the injured person seems out of proportion to the degree of severity of the original injury. If left untreated the injury may get worse over time. Multi-modal treatment is usually required which includes:
- Exercise Programme (including Gym Programme)
- Pain specialist treatment;
- General Practitioner case management;
- Hydrotherapy; and
- Psychological treatment.
The diagnosis of CRPS has been divided into two separate diagnosis:
CRPS Type 1
This type of CRPS arises from an injury to tissues other than nerve tissue. For example, a bone fracture may lead to CRPS in the soft tissues surrounding the site of the break.
CRPS Type 2
This type of CRPS arises from an injury that damages nerve tissue.
Foyle Legal’s experience is that Type 1 is more common. For example it could arise from a broken leg or a broken toe, but Type 2 is not uncommon and can result from a nerve injury such as the nerves in a hand.
How Does complex regional pain syndrome Present After a Work Injury?
If you believe you have CRPS you should seek medical advice. The following are a list of symptoms that Foyle Legal have seen to be associated with a diagnosis of CRPS
- Swelling and oedema;
- Sweating that is more or less than normal (usually more);
- Abnormal growth of hair (either more hair or less hair);
- Abnormal nail growth (often with colour change);
- Changes in the colour or the texture of the skin;
- Discolouration of skin;
- Skin temperature changes (this can be wide spread and Foyle Legal has seen cases where a person suffered temperature changes down the whole left side of their body);
- Involuntary movements (may be associated with another disorder;
- Sensitivity to touch;
- Pain which was initially located in the injury area but the pain then moves into other areas of the body (e.g. initial injury was to the left hand but pain spreads through the arm into the chest).
- Feeling hot or cold in circumstances where those feelings are not normal;
- Atrophy to the muscles;
- Fatigue generally.
How Foyle Legal Can Help with a CRPS Injury Claim?
If you have suffered CRPS you may require medical treatment for the rest of your life. The cost can be considerable and pay include doctor appointments, specialist appointments, medications, pain management, modifications to your home and surgery to treat your CRPS condition.
Insurers such as the Insurance Commission of Western Australia (for motor vehicle accident injury claims) and workers compensation insurers will often recognise CRPS as, firstly, a condition where it is difficult to get a diagnosis, and secondly, a potentially expensive condition and will often look to settle the claim for a low sum so as to avoid paying expenses or additional damages in the future.
Foyle Legal can help you navigate the claims process so that you get the maximum amount you can and medical treatment you need to improve your condition. At Foyle Legal we have the experience, skill, and resources to get the job done for you.
