RSD & CRPS can be effectively treated if diagnosed early, but may spread to other body parts if treatment is delayed. Due to the illusive ways the disorder manifests itself, RSD treatment is often multi-disciplinary in nature.

Good progress can be made in treating RSD/CRPS if treatment is begun early, ideally within three months of the initial symptoms. If treatment is delayed, however, the disorder can quickly spread to the entire limb and changes in bone, nerve, and muscle may become irreversible. The prognosis is not always good. The limbs can experience atrophy, loss of use, and functionality. RSD/CRPS will not spontaneously disappear, but if treated early, it is likely to go into remission.
The general strategy in CRPS treatment is often multi-disciplinary, with the use of different types of medication combined with distinct physical therapies. Physicians use a variety of drugs to treat CRPS, including:
- GABA analogs
- Alpha or beta-adrenergic-blocking compounds
Although many different drugs are used, there is not much supportive evidence for most of them. This doesn’t necessarily reflect evidence that they don’t work, just a lack of evidence that they do.
