The cause of CRPS is unknown, but it is generally thought to be the result of the body reacting abnormally to an injury. It is difficult to estimate exactly how common CRPS is, as many cases may go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Currently there are no approved treatments for CRPS.

If approved neridronic acid will be a potential new treatment for CRPS.
