Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

This patient woke up one day with incredible sharp pain on her left hand, when she was 22. She never found of what triggered her CRPS. Since then, it has spread to her whole arm up to the shoulder. She has tried various treatment paths, from Ketamine infusions to a chiropractic program in which she stayed for weeks, but none of these options worked for her, the latest actually made it worse. She found out about Neridronate and MTI talking to another CPRS patient she met at the clinic and decided it would be her next step.

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.
