Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or post-traumatic
I broke my left wrist in a bicycle accident in 2008. Because I am a musician I was very concerned about whether I would ever be able to play music
again. The fracture healed well and I had a good physiotherapist, so I was playing music again better than ever within two months after the cast came off my arm. I was very happy.
Unfortunately, my happiness was short-lived. I started experiencing strange symptoms in my left hand and wrist - pain,
stiffness, and a very painful burning sensation. These symptoms spread from my left arm to my right arm, and then to my right leg. These are typical signs of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
(CRPS) or post-traumatic dystrophy.
Later, my arms became weak and I could not play music anymore. The pain in my right leg was so bad that I could not sleep. I tried many different kinds of
medication, acupuncture, massage, physiotherapy, exercises, chiropractic, and electrical stimulation therapy
(scrambling). Nothing worked. I was severely depressed. Not only had I lost my ability to play
music, I had to live with horrible pain.
While traveling in Germany in the summer of 2015 I saw an article in a German medical journal about neural
therapy, which had been invented by a German doctor named Huneke. I had never heard of it
before, but it sounded very interesting. When I returned to my home in Amsterdam I did a search on the Internet and found the
Pijn Weg Amstelveen practice of
doctor Sondervan-Frank. I began treatment in the fall of 2015. Within a month after I began
treatment, the excruciating pain that had plagued me for more than seven years was drastically
reduced. A few months later I was completely free from pain most of the time. When the pain
returned, it was very reduced and did not last long.
I continued with the therapy for more than a year and a half, till May 2016, with treatments every
two, three or four weeks. I continued with the treatment because I hoped that it would not only cure my pain but also return the strength in my hands so that I could play music
The situation now is that I am totally free from pain nearly all the time, and when I do have pain it is not very intense and it goes away
soon. I will probably return for treatment once every three or four months to make sure that I remain free of pain.
After I tried every imaginable kind of medication and treatment for seven years with no
Doctor Sondervan-Frank eliminated my pain.
