Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

This patient had been “cohabitating” (like he liked to say) with CRPS for just over 10 years now, since a terrible work incident that ended up costing him a toe that had to be amputated, when he was 38. He had tried pretty much all the treatments out there over the last years, when he finally came across Neridronate in a group chat with his CRPS support group back home. He then found us online, and contacted us quickly to organize his trip to Italy.

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)

Sessions with Health Coach.
4 Clodronate infusions (100mg, I.v. in saline Solution 0,9% 250 ml)
3 sessions Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Treatment 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.
10 days Light Therapy (in 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.
10 nights Biophysical Treatment (5 hours each night while the patients are 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.
