This study showed reorganization of the S1 cortex contralateral to the CRPS affected side, and it appeared to be linked to complaints of neuropathic pain.

The results of this study suggest that substantial adaptive changes within the central nervous system may contribute to motor symptoms in CRPS.
Cortical reorganization during recovery from complex regional pain syndrome
Changes of the somatotopic map within the S1 cortex may depend on CRPS pain and its recovery, and these changes are unclear how these S1 changes develop following successful therapy.

The detailed knowledge of clinical features of CRPS could help physicians early to recognize the disease and thus to improve therapy outcome.
