It is very important to try to maintain a positive outlook while dealing with CRPS. This isn’t easy but can make a huge difference in your recovery. Fighting CRPS, which can be a chronic form of pain, can easily lead to depression. Staying positive and keeping to as normal a schedule as possible is very important. It is well documented that the key to CRPS “recovery” is maintaining an active lifestyle and finding ways to incorporate physical therapy types of movement in everyday life. Many people find that participating in activities like yoga and pilates which focus on the balance of the mind and body are very beneficial in maintaining a positive outlook. If you are having difficulty with this, please seek medical help.
