Rest, cold pack, and hot. A container filled with water cold 3 min, and then hot water. What I found was overactivity the pain hits in areas. Yet change your lifestyle. Putting your hands on the door apart, then rase your heals up, and down 10 times. Spa lotion form isreal helped. To much treatment at once causes pain sign form your body to stop. It takes up to 8 or 12 months to receive any inprovement in RSD. My mother said your going to face alot of pain to heal she is right. My injury was on steps. Water has helped alot. Iam not able to do what I did before it realy makes you think about life. What important u know. If one of us can find the answers for the rest of us we all make it keep positive.
