In addition to pain, motor dysfunction in the involved extremity may be a significant cause of disability. To spur reassessment of underlying mechanisms and development of novel rehabilitative approaches for RSD, we propose a new hypothesis: a neurologic neglect-like syndrome may explain the motor dysfunction that… CONTINUE READING
