What is the prognosis for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?
All therapies work best when instituted early (<2–3 months) in the course of CRPS. In adults, up to 85% improve during the 1st year. Only 30% are cured by 5 years, whereas 2% to 3% have a relapsing course. In children, up to 95% resolve their symptoms within the 1st year.
