Patients’ experiences of treatment-relevant processes in multimodal pain rehabilitation for severe complex regional pain syndrome – a qualitative study.


Johannesson C, Nehlin C, Gordh T, Hysing EB, Bothelius K


Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a longstanding condition with spontaneous and evoked pain, that usually occurs in an upper or lower extremity. Although it often resolves within the first year, it may for a minority progress to a chronic and occasionally severely disabling condition. The aim of this study was to explore patients’ experiences and perceived effects of a specific treatment, designed for patients with severe and highly disabling CRPS, in order to identify possible treatment-relevant processes.
