Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

Simply looking online for available treatments, he found CRPS-Treatment Italy and contacted us to hear about the treatment. This patient is a very sportive person, he loves outdoor sports and has been very depressed since his diagnosis. His mobility has definitely gotten worse with time and the pain doesn’t allow him to do certain sports in which arms are key, such as climbing.

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)

Follow up

MAY 2023 (3 months after Neridronate treatment): the patient says he feels his arm getting stronger, and the pain levels lowering.

AUGUST 2023 (6 months after Neridronate treatment): The patient mentions being in near remission, his symptoms are quasi inexistant and he feels like he “got his arm back”.

NOVEMBER 2023 (9 months after Neridronate treatment): The patient is back to climbing, hiking and riding as he was before, he is so thankful for treatment and says he feels like he has gotten a second chance in life.

Conclusion

A near remission is excellent in a case of CRPS in which the patient had it for a bit more than a year, like this man. Getting back to activities as it was before his accident and before the surgery, he told us in an email “it’s as if nothing ever happened, I never thought I would reach this point”.
