Return to Function: Evidence and Advances in Functional Rehabilitation

Interdisciplinary functional rehabilitation is acknowledged as the gold standard for the treatment of CRPS. A review of the current evidence will determine what constitutes functional rehabilitation and how effective it is in improving patients outcomes. Recent clinical outcome data will be presented to establish whether there are differences in clinical outcomes between early or persistent CRPS following specialist rehabilitation. The implications of these findings will be discussed in the context of informing future clinical practice. Finally, latest advances in rehabilitation treatment approaches will be discussed
