More evidence that "brain control of movement is altered in CRPS".

How to Cope With Pain website refers to a new study by neurologist Esther Gieteling et al. from the Netherlands. This study suports other evidence that "the problem is not (just) in the muscles themselves, but in the brain." The approach to management of the pain of CRPS follows from this research and supports the idea of retraining the brain using guided visualization and mirror visual therapy. More good reasons to take a good look in the mirror.
