On September 7, 2019, Michael Flomenhaft spoke at the 4th annual RSDSA/CRPS Long Island awareness event.
Michael Flomenhaft discussed a typically unrecognized consequence of CRPS/RSD pain: its potential for adverse effects on the brain. His talk encompassed CRPS/RSD and their relationship to asymmetric and accelerated brain atrophy, brain rewiring, brain hypersensitization and cellular change. He explained the accompanying cognitive, emotional and immunological consequences of these brain effects. The medical, legal and financial implications associated with the future mental and physical decline accompanying with these changes were also covered.
