How do patients experience and make sense of limb disownership in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome? An interpretive phenomenological analysis.

Trial Reference Number
Trial Status
Adult Participants, CRPS, Lower Limb CRPS, Psychology, Upper Limb CRPS

Do you have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and does it feel that your limbs don’t belong to you? This study wants to hear from you. Researchers at the University of Bath want to learn more about what this feels like, to help improve patient experiences of CRPS by exploring experiences of limb disownership in patients with CRPS.

Limb disownership is when the affected limb feels ‘detached’ from the rest of the patient’s body and it may feel alien and outside of their control. Little is known about what this experience feels like and how patients cope with it.

Participants will get a £20 Amazon voucher for a 1 hour interview. Meet online or face to face.

Who can participate?

Recruitment is open to patients who:

  • Are over 18 years old
  • Have a formal diagnosis of CRPS in one or more limbs
  • Have experienced CRPS for over 9 months
  • Experience a sense of limb disownership
