Success story: DH is a young woman with a 3 year history of CRPS affecting her foot.  Through her program, she has returned to full activity including getting pedicures for the first time in years. 

Our philosophy:

  • CRPS is not "in your head".  Research and experience have shown that CRPS results from problems functional connectivity in the brain and the body.  We believe strongly in understanding who many different factors might contribute to the pain including your peripheral nervous system, central nervous system, musculoskeletal factors and lifestyle factors. 

  • We believe in recovery! We join you on a journey (and you are in the driver's seat) and are part of an interdisciplinary team that includes your physician, psychologist and other health professionals.  We also discuss and prepare for flare-ups and changes along your journey. 

  • Our therapy approach is strongly influenced by the research and principles of neuroplasticity.  We are driven by the ideas that the brain is plastic and while the connections might be skewed in CRPS, we can re-establish healthy connections through movement, motor control, sensory training, autonomic control and addressing underlying physical limitations.  We implement a strong motor learning approach to treatment including graded motor imagery and principles of autonomy, external focus and enhanced expectations.
