Abstract Introduction: AND (Algoneurodystrophy) is a neuropathic pain disease characterized by incapacitating pain, swelling, vasomotor instability, sudomotor abnormality, and impaired motor function. The pain is disproportionate to the severity of the tissue injury and lasts longer than the expected time for tissue repair. Material and method: The current study began with the idea that, in the case of algoneurodystrophy, patients in the experiment group would benefit from a considerably faster recovery in terms of mobility and coordination joints in hand and foot if a psychokinetic program, rather than only pharmacological treatment, was implemented. The program applied includes physiotherapy, massage, light range of motion of the affected limb, strengthening exercises, stress loading of the active part, if necessary, and ensuring adequate analgesia. As a result, this type of therapy encourages AND patients to use the affected limb in daily activities. Results:The experiment group followed the recovery protocol developed by us and achieved excellent results at the end of the week; the patients felt much better and were satisfied. The control group with drug treatment did not have a high degree of pain, but the joint mobility was affected, and the coordination did not improve much compared to the experiment group. After diagnosing algoneurodystrophy, immediate psychokinetic recovery is of considerable importance on the lost function of the hand and foot. Conclusion: The combination of kinetic treatment with physiotherapy next to drug treatment has beneficial effects on the recovery process in relieving pain and inflammation.

Key words: recovery treatment, kinesiotherapy, algoneurodystrophy.
