A ten week open label study intervention to evaluate the outcome for a psychological intervention combined with physiotherapy and medication with memantine-morphine in 10 CRPS patients.
Ten CRPS I patients attended an intervention for 10 weeks. First, the medication was started with morphine 10mg adding gradually to 30 mg per day. Then, in addition to morphine, memantine 5 mg was started adding the dose gradually up to 40 mg per day if tolerated. Physiotherapy and psychological intervention were mostly carried out in a weekly group gathering with home exercises that were recorded to a diary. Psychological and physiotherapy interventions lasted for eight weeks. A neurological examination was done before and after the intervention as well as a separate physiotherapist examination of the hands. Patients filled out questionnaires of mood, quality of life, pain, and CRPS descriptions before and after the intervention.
