    Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, or CRPS, is an acquired pain condition involving a limb subject to thermal or mechanical trauma.

Hypersensitivity to touch or other sensory modality, together with manifestations of autonomic dysfunction such as reddening or sweating, are often present as well.

  • Pediatric Depression (6-17 Years)

    Children and teenagers may have depression, as can adults. Depression is defined as an illness when depressed mood or lack of interest and caring persist, and interfere with a child or adolescent’s ability to function. About 5 percent of children and adolescents suffer from depression at any given point in time. Children under stress, who experience loss, or who have attentional, learning, conduct, or anxiety disorders are at a higher risk for depression. Depression also tends to run in families.

  • Upcoming - Schizophrenia

    Schizophrenia is a disorder of thought and perception, usually with an onset in young adulthood and a chronic, deteriorating course. The hallmarks of the disorder include delusions, hallucinations, and a deterioration in functioning, sometimes severe.

    A person with schizophrenia becomes increasingly preoccupied with his interior world to the exclusion of the larger reality in which we all find ourselves. This leads to a neglect of the ordinary demands of daily life, especially concerning interpersonal relatedness.

  • Fibromyalgia Clinical Trial

    Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition identified by widespread pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points on the body. Often, just the slightest pressure causes pain. Although no one knows what causes fibromyalgia pain, many medical experts think that fibromyalgia could be related to a variety of different causes including sleep disturbances, abnormalities of the nervous system, stress, changes in muscle metabolism, or hormonal changes.  Some symptoms include:

    • Stiffness
    • Tenderness
    • Fatigue
    • Trouble sleeping
