RSD and Chronic Pain Disability Claims

Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is a form of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) that usually affects an arm, hand, leg or foot. People with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) endure pain that can seem intolerable. There is no cure, and the cause is not understood.

Also known as type 1 complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) , reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) occurs after a person experiences an illness or injury that did not directly damage the affected body part. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is the most common form of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), accounting for about 90 percent of cases.
