A 53 year old grocery store clerk had an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) of a distal radius fracture of her dominant upper extremity 4 months ago. The patient developed complex regional pain syndrome 30 days after surgery. Upon assessment, the patient is observed to have decreased ROM and decreased abilities to complete functional tasks.

B) Exhibit one pain modulation techniques during work related activities
C) Increase upper extremity range of motion by 20 degrees
D) Simulate job tasks related in the OT clinic

Answer: B. Pain modulation techniques will help the patient to manage and/or reduce pain while completing work tasks, allowing her to continue work rather than stopping work to manage pain symptoms.
