Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a highly painful limb confined condition which arises after trauma. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is caused by the delay in treating Compartment Syndrome. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is associated with a poor quality of life, permanent pain, and large healthcare costs.

Characteristics of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome are: pain, swelling, muscle atrophy, color changes in the limb, weakness, decreased motion, and shiny clam skin. Diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is based solely on the examination and a patient history of trauma and causes the blood supply to the area to be exaggerated due to vessel constriction. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is often treated with pain medication geared to help the patients manage the symptoms. In extreme cases, implantation of pain simulators have been shown to help with the pain.
