Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy RSD

Relief from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

Reflex Sympathetic DystrophyReflex Sympathetic Dystrophy or RSD is a disorder of the central nervous system. This health condition is usually characterized by intense burning pain, swelling, stiffness and skin discoloration in the arms, hands, legs or feet.

RSD affects the part of the central nervous system that controls involuntary functions of the body. That includes such things as regulating blood pressure and heart rate.

Many times, the pain someone experiences in their shoulders, arms, hands, legs or feet gets misdiagnosed for something other than RSD.  It’s important to seek the help from a health care professional who is specifically trained in the disorders of the central nervous system.
