Aww man! I’m over a year late on this one. Maybe you were a little slow on finding it too, so I’ll go ahead and post it because I think it’s brilliant.
I don’t think it really matters that his patients are mainly children (apart from perhaps the fact it’s been noted that the younger you are, the easier it is for you to go into remission with PT), but I hardly think that matters at all…
Dr. Krane not only managed to explain CRPS/RSD to an audience in under 10 minutes, but he made a so-called ‘invisible illness’ (for very good reason) VISIBLE to people in under 10 minutes.
Among other things, he’s just saved us from…
- No more laughs at the ridiculousness of feeling a blowtorch instead of a feather (although to be honest, this disease is so ridiculous, pre-diagnosis he may have gotten a confused “huh huh” chuckle out of me too…).
- No more, but the pain must come from your head argument (I’ve had this one even with my closest friends!)
- No more, pain is a symptom, not a disease (how many of you have - from the kindness of others hearts - been given herbs, teas, stretches, referrals, machines, more referrals, relaxing 101, etc…)
Oh Dr. Krane! You’re looking a little like some kind of CRPS/RSD superhero based on the fact that we can now just show your Ted Talk in a bind. In fact, you’re formally invited to trail behind me explaining what’s wrong, and no worries, it’s hardly like I move very fast x
