Whilst Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is very rare in the elderly, children can develop the condition. It is virtually unheard of in babies and toddlers and rare under the age of ten, but there are regular examples of it occurring in teenagers.
Seeing anybody suffering the torment of CRPS can be distressing, but in a young person it is particularly heartbreaking.
CRPS in children and adolescents creates its very own set of problems, particularly in relation to the prescribing of stronger medications and consideration of the more invasive forms of treatment such as spinal cord stimulation (SCS) and dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRG).
