CRPS Treatment can count on an experienced staff that pledges to always research and suggest the best treatment options for every particular patient. Right now, we have found that Neridronate, together with the Light Treatment, is what gives the best results in CRPS affected persons.
 
Neridronate infusions:
This is the main treatment: 4 infusions, two hours long (each) of Neridronic Acid solution. This is the standard treatment in Italy for CRPS. It is the only one that can ensure a permanent solution and was tested and patented by the University of Verona Hospital Company (AOUI), in Italy. We work with those very same doctors that, for almost 20 years, have studied this bisphosphonate and its effects on CRPS.
 
The treatment consists in 4 infusions of which the first one usually is the longest: it includes a visit by the doctor and, then, a nurse will have to adjust the i.v. pump settings to each patient. Depending on what Hospital we will use, however, the Treatment might be 4 or 8 days long (with one infusion every other day in this last case). The doctor will visit the patient one last time, once the treatment concluded.
 
That is all! In case the patient is feeling the flu like symptoms, the doctor will prescribe an aspirin or a very light medicine to keep them under control. Then the patient is good to go, CRPS Treatment will follow his/her progresses for the 6 months after the infusions. Neridronate usually takes 2 to 3 months to kick in in full effect and, again, permanently.
WHY ITALY?
‘The Lancet’ places Italian Healthcare 12th worldwide, fixing it among the top five European countries (along with Sweden, Norway, Spain, Luxemburg) while other traditionally excellent health systems are pushed way back (USA is 35th, Germany is 20th, ...
NERIDRONATE
Doctors state that Neridronate is the right path towards an actual cure. If caught on time, though, in 80% of cases, CRPS actually disappears and none of the patients notices a return of the symptoms, not even one year after the treatment.
