Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

The patient had tried so many treatments. From Ketamine infusions to spinal cord stimulator, rehabilitation therapy, mirror therapy, sensorial therapy, acupuncture, and more.
Most of them did not help, and the ones that did only lasted for short periods of time. She found out about MTI online and decided to give a shot to the Neridronate infusions. 

Medical treatment the Patient underwent in Italy

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a severely painful and disabling disease for which a multitude of therapeutic interventions have been proposed. In the past two decades, only Bisphosphonates gained credibility. In recent years, more convincing evidence has become available on the use of Parenteral Neridronate. Since 2014, this drug is registered and marketed in Italy for the treatment of CRPS. To date, the only therapeutic schedule that is recognized to be able to confer benefit is the intravenous (IV) administration of 100 mg given 4 times.

4 neridronate infusions (100mg, I.v. in saline Solution 0,9% 250 ml)
