The treatment of patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) takes place in an interdisciplinary and multimodal setting. Physical therapies represent a major treatment focus along with physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and analgetic treatments. This review explains their importance in current clinical practice and gives an impression of the evidence on different treatments including electrotherapy, neuromodulating procedures, manual lymphatic drainage, CO2 applications and paraffin wax baths. As far as ascertainable from clinical experience and the scientific literature, treatment recommendations are presented in accordance with current guidelines.
