Complex regional pain syndrome-RSD-is a condition that causes much pain and suffering. Effective therapy is available but at times it is lengthy, involves some trial and error, and is costly in human as well as financial terms. The development of special interest groups, increased communication of improved therapeutic techniques, as well as a better understanding of the disease, has resulted in more and more successful outcomes, especially since the introduction of interventional techniques. It is quite impressive that behavioral techniques need to he used simultaneously with medical and interventional techniques. Functional restoration aided by physical therapy remains an essential component of patients' therapeutic regimens in addition to interventional techniques.
