Fascial Manipulation for the Treatment of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome – Case Study Reports

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a catastrophic debilitating condition typically affecting the extremities. CRPS has multiple associated sensory, motor and autonomic nerve changes. This condition is defined largely on its clinical presentation. There is considerable debate of what constitutes best treatment.

We report 4 case studies of patients with confirmed CRPS before, during and after treatment using fascia manipulation (Stecco Method).

The outcomes of fascial manipulation treatment has a transformational effect on the lives of the CRPS sufferers. However more robust research is needed
