Phantom limb pain sometimes referred to as just phantom pain, is a form of chronic pain that feels as if it’s coming from a part of the body that is no longer there. Once believed to be simply a psychological phenomenon brought on after an amputation, but recent research proves that it is real pain originating from the brain and spinal cord.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic neuro-inflammatory disorder that typically affects one specific limb after an injury, believed to be caused by damage to the nervous system. The pain is usually out of proportion when compared to the initial injury. Often, the initial energy is a musculoskeletal or nerve injury.
