Abstract

To date there is insufficient evidence for efficiency in treatment to determine a treatment algorithm for body perception disturbance (BPD) in complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). We are reliant on what we know to inform treatment choice for the individual.
We will present data on the variety of features that comprise BPD, the relationship between BPD and pain, disease duration, tactile acuity
Furthermore, recent research on visual illusions as a novel way to address this problem will be presented
