Is complex regional pain syndrome really untreatable?

The root of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) hasn't yet been discovered. As researchers work on finding out the exact causes, the only treatments currently available are to treat the symptoms of pain. Some people with CRPS find pain relief from medications (pills, shots, creams), injections of pain relievers to the site or to the spine, or through biofeedback and relaxation.

What may work for one patient may not work for another and, unfortunately, even if a patient does find a method that provides pain relief, that treatment may lose its effectiveness over time.
