Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a rare condition that may have devastating effects for a teenager and their family. A huge part of getting better from CRPS involves understanding what is going on. Thus, Dr. G. R. Lauder and Roslyn Massey have collaborated to make this knowledge accessible to teens in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Explained.
The principal aim of this book is to provide clear information for teenagers who have CRPS, to demystify this condition, and aid in its management and the journey to recovery. In an effort to make it even more useful, the authors have asked a focus group of teenagers—which included those who have been treated for CRPS—to provide their feedback. Medical terms have been broken down in a way that can be easily understood by teens.
In Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Explained, teenagers can follow cartoons of Harold the alpha lion, who develops CRPS, and relays his journey from diagnosis to recovery. With a clearer understanding of CRPS, teenagers will be able to take part in the decisions that affect their health and body.
For those who want more information, superscript numbers in the sentences link to a relevant reference that supports the information. They can be found in the reference list at the end of the book. Also provided is a list of other relevant books on the topic as well as a limited list of pediatric pain management clinics.
