My daughter is suffering from complex regional pain syndrome in left foot and lower leg. Will magnetic resonance Neurography benefit her and in what way? She is due to have a sympathetic lumbar block to try and help.

Hi. I'm afraid this is outside my area of specialty. It's probably best to ask a pain specialist for their advice.
Thanks

I’m afraid I have no experience with MR neurography, but my understanding is that it is a specific type of MRI scan to image nerves. How helpful it may be for your daughter really depends on the details of her case and what question you are hoping to have answered. As she is due to have sympathetic block, I assume she is already under care of a pain specialist, but if not then that is who she should see. Specialist physiotherapists with expertise in CRPS may also be useful. Best wishes.
