Early and effective treatment is extremely important when dealing with CRPS and other chronic pain conditions. Research has shown that if treatment is delayed the outcome is likely to be less favourable.
We have a team of experts who have vast experience in pain management and delivering the appropriate treatment programmes. The sooner they can get started the better. One of our priorities is to get the other party’s insurance company to pay for a private treatment regime without delay. In the majority of cases, and if they refuse to co-operate, we can force them to do this through the court process.
The NHS is one of the best in the world but it is frequently constrained by financial restraints and limited resources. This is where the private sector comes in. Waiting lists and issues of cost tend to go out of the window.
Whenever we can, we will arrange for the other party’s insurance company to pay for the best treatment available which is:
- Free from lengthy NHS waiting lists;
- Delivered by leading clinicians;
- Provided when you need it most.
Approximately 7 million people in the UK are believed to suffer from chronic pain conditions like CRPS. That’s a startling statistic. Perhaps most worrying of all is the fact that the average time it takes for a patient to receive a satisfactory diagnosis is 2.2 years! That’s an awfully long period of time in which to suffer without any form of suitable treatment. It’s much too long.
The sad fact is that many medical practitioners fail to recognise the development of chronic pain and crps. There is a great danger that the diagnosis will simply be overlooked. Very few clinicians have adequate knowledge or experience of treating chronic pain conditions.
Chronic pain is often linked to a traumatic event. However, what is frequently misunderstood is that the event may be very minor indeed. It could be a very simple bruise, a minor whiplash injury, a soft tissue injury, or a very minor fracture. The injury itself is not the important factor. What matters is how the victim reacts to the incident. The reaction may appear to be out of all proportion to the injury, but that mustn’t stand in the way of a correct diagnosis and proper treatment. The reaction is entirely genuine and will often lead to some very serious long term suffering.
