Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

She had found us via YouTube, watching our Patient’s Testimonials. When she saw a video about a patient with a similar case and the improvements he had seen after treatment, she decided to contact us.

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)

DECEMBER 2023 (6 months after Neridronate treatment): The patient refers to her leg not changing color anymore. The pain levels have now dropped to a daily 2 which she is incredibly happy about. She can now walk normally without having issues while doing so.
