Abstract

This report presents a case of complex regional pain syndrome. The patient presented with severe pain, sensory disturbance, and distorted body image at the site of initial injury and other body sites. Tactile localization training (TLT) at only the site of initial injury decreased severe pain at the site of initial injury and the secondary affected sites, whereas TLT at secondary affected sites had no effect. These results highlighted the importance of assessing changes in patients' pain processes to determine the part of the body where TLT should be applied.
