Highlights a. Holistic Centered Treatment (HCT) protocol is an evidence based novel treatment that is multimodality, non-invasive and drug free used to treat Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and other forms of intractable chronic pain.
b. HCT consists of laser (3b), Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF), neuroplasticity training, clinical hypnosis, biofeedback-utilizing Heart Rate Variability (HRV), neurofeedback, vagus nerve stimulation, and breathwork.
c. HCT is a five (5) day protocol followed by a 90-day home program.
d. HCT provided long-term relief and remission for this patient.
e. HCT is an effective treatment option for both type 1 and type 2 CRPS. Abstract Background: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a painful and disabling syndrome where the patient presents with neuropathic pain, edema, causalgia, and/or vasomotor or pseudomotor abnormalities that are often refractory to treatment. CRPS type 2 can occur following an injury to the nerve, surgery, or auto accident.
Holistic Centered Treatment (HCT) protocol is considered an evidence based novel treatment that is multi-modality, non-invasive and drug free developed by Dr. Traci Patterson. HCT has shown to be effective in the treatment of CRPS (type 1 and type 2). Resulting in dramatic drops in pain levels, decreasing edema, causalgia and vasomotor or pseudomotor abnormalities. CRPS patients that have previously failed traditional allopathic treatments have shown marked improvement with HCT, and many are gaining long-term remission.
