CRSP Type I
CRPS Type I can also follow soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue cases refer to the "softer" areas of the body, not including bones or joints. These injuries can range from minor to major depending on the injury. Close to 65% of all RSD cases involve injuries that affected the soft tissue. Examples of these injuries include burns, sprains, and tears. Most of the disorders that end in "itis" ; bursitis, arthritis, and tendonitis to name a few, also can cause RSD.
