Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

The patient underwent two sympathetic nerve blocks, pool therapy, physical therapy, mirror therapy, acupuncture. She also took different medications and supplements. She needed a wheelchair or crutches to walk. A family friend lives in Vicenza, close to our head office, and she visited us to receive all the information possible. The patient parents understood that, being that the girl had CRPS for very few months, she had great chance to get into remission and they immediately decided to travel 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)

She walks without any aid and has started to reduce her medications. She is now back to school.

Due to his deep knowledge, the Rheumatologist Professor could prescribe the suitable medication dosage according to her age and weight, providing the best possible outcomes. Most Doctors are afraid of treating children, leaving them without answers and hope. We created a team of medical professionals that can plan a path for every patient, regardless of their age.
