Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

This patient is a physiotherapist specialized in chronic pain. She was well aware of CRPS as she was of other chronic pain conditions, so when the first symptoms appeared after her sprained wrist seemed to be completely healed, she was alert and knew to see a neurologist quickly. The doctor confirmed her diagnosis, she then tried various treatment in the UK, none of which gave her the relief she was looking for. Unfortunately, she had to suspend her professional activity as the pain was becoming unbearable. She found out about Neridronate online and decided it was her best option.  

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)
