Holistic Treatment for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

Feb 08, 2014 02:30AM

Complex regional pain syndrome/reflex sympathetic dystrophy CRPS/RSD is an insidious disorder of unknown origin of the nervous system that also can affect the musculoskeletal system and the body’s internal organs. The hallmark of the disorder is pain which is often out of proportion to the inciting event. The pain is usually described as burning, but can also be sharp or dull and is sometimes referred to as deep bone pain. Other symptoms may include swelling, color change, temperature change, hair and nail growth changes and movement disorders. A holistic approach to treatment is accomplished through the evaluation of the role of neurotransmitters and other body systems, including hormones, gut ecology, gluten intolerance, and vitamin deficiencies. Neurotransmitter testing can untangle complex and recurring health conditions and get to the root problem underlying symptoms. Dr. Philip Getson, is an osteopathic physician and pioneer in the field of ketamine infusion therapy for the treatment of CRPS/RSD. Contact him in Marlton, NJ, at 856-983-7246.
