Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

The patient’s wife joined several Facebook CRPS support groups in which she saw one of our previous patients talking about her experience with us and her results from the treatment.
Lucky enough, this lady lived in the same city of the couple. They met and after hearing every detail of the treatment, they decided to take the trip for the Neridronate treatment too.

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)
See the Official Study on the Oxford Academics website: https://academic.oup.com/rheumatology/article/52/3/534/1777330

4 Pantoprazole infusions; Paracetamol.

3 sessions Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Treatment with Physiotherapist.
Rehabilitation therapy is a full body workout which focuses on the general wellbeing of the body, to help the affected limb get back to its normal self.

7 days Light Therapy (in the hotel room, 30+ more minutes each day)
30 minutes or more of usage of the MTI Light Therapy reduces inflammation, increase micro-circulation, relax nerves and muscles, reduces pain transmission, accelerates healing, regenerates cells, and promotes cells activation.

7 nights Biophysical Treatment (5 hours each night while the patient is asleep)
MTI’s Biophysical Treatment is the outcome of 25 years of research and studies. It has been certified by the best Italian Universities, partners from both public and private teams. The Biophysical treatment acts on the roots of the disease, brings relief to the inflammatory condition, helps the cells regeneration, the oxygenation, the micro-circulation, and the lymphatic system.

Follow up

DECEMBER 2021 (2 months after Neridronate treatment): the patient says the swelling and redness in his hand have drastically reduced. Pain is still present, but on lower levels (6/10 against a constant 10/10 before his treatment). He is following the exercises report given by the physiotherapist in Italy.

FEBRUARY 2022 (4 months after Neridronate treatment): the patient says he does not feel pain due to any material’s touch anymore, and the swelling is completely gone. He said he can wear his favorite bracelet for the first time in 4 years.

MAY 2022 (7 months after treatment): The patient mentions a pain lowering of 85% since his treatment, and confirms the swelling and redness of his hand have not come back since December.

Conclusion

The patient’s case was of a 4 years CRPS battle. In this case, side therapies are always strongly recommended. This patient had incredible results both on pain levels, lowering of 85%, and other symptoms that were very handicapping for him.
This was a very successful case and the patient’s positivity and his dedication to the exercise plan from his neuro-muscular sessions were key in his recovery.
