The International RSD Foundation has been helping the RSD/CRPS community since 1990. We provide free medical information regarding RSD/CRPS, referrals to doctors, physical therapists, lawyers and other medical professionals. We also offer support to patients and their families by phone or e-mail.

This organization is privately funded and we are not able to receive donations.

I would like to recommend that you send your kind donation to the following organizations:

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

9000 Rockville Pike

Bethesda, Maryland 20892




The National Institutes of Health (N I H) does a tremendous amount of research regarding RSD/CRPS. I feel that your donation to this organization will be most helpful to the many people who suffer from RSD/CRPS. Maybe someday they can find a cure for RSD/CRPS with your help.

New CRPS Project

I would like to inform the RSD/CRPS community that we have added a new member to our team here at the International RSD Foundation.

Erin, a health promotion Masters student, has joined the Foundation for a few months. Her practicum will be focused on creating health promotion resources for the CRPS community. She is a CRPS patient as well, so she understands the difficulties that come with diagnosis, treatment and trying to help others understand this condition. Her approach to this work includes talking to others in the community to find out what resources will be most valuable to supporting health. As such, this work will be driven by the topic areas, as well as, the types of resources, that are of greatest interest and need for you.

This project provides you with the opportunity to have your voice heard to inform some of the future work done by the Foundation! As part of a small project for the International RSD Foundation, we will be developing a few short written resources on topics of greatest interest to you: CRPS patients, and their support systems! 

So, we are looking for any CRPS patients, as well as those who support people living with CRPS (family, friend, etc.), who are interested in partaking in a short 5-8 equation survey to inform the direction and type of work completed! This information will also help inform future work completed by the Foundation.

If you are interested please contact me at: Thank you!

If you have any questions regarding RSD/CRPS, or about any information posted on this website, or you just need to talk, please feel free to contact me during the following office hours: Monday through Friday 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. EST at: 774-501-2808.

I would like to thank you for visiting our website, and I hope that your visit to this site will be helpful to you.
