My mother had CRPS and then developed strong spasms and contortions in her hand a few months later. I read that this can happen after CRPS so shouldn't this have been prevented?

The onset of movement disorders (MDs) in patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is being studied by researchers as they try to find the connection between the two. In one study, researchers found that 56 percent of the patients with CRPS developed MDs, but the researchers don't know why.

Because there is no definite connection yet between the two (CRPS and MDs), doctors don't know what can be done to prevent MDs from developing in some patients.
