RSD, also known as complex regional pain syndrome, is a nerve
disorder that occurs at the site of an injury (most often
to the arms or legs), either from high- or low-velocity impact.
However, it may occur without apparent injury. Generally the
pain is out of proportion with the severity of the injury
and gets worse, rather than better, over time.
Thankfully, Dr. Whitfield has extensive experience treating
RSD. To relieve the chronic pain caused by RSD, he uses a
variety of treatment options, including medication, physical
therapy and injections. Ask Dr. Whitfield which treatment

nonsurgical solutions first.
Dr. Whitfield will never pressure you into surgery. In fact,
he explores all nonsurgical solutions first, because surgery
is not always the only option. Approximately 85% of orthopedic
problems are treated nonsurgically (medication, cast or splint
application, physical therapy, etc.) while 15% require surgical
treatment. But if surgery is needed, you can trust you’re
in the hands of an experienced, qualified orthopedic surgeon.
