Our Mission

We hope to assist patients, as well as family, and friends of those who suffer from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or more recently known as  Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). This organization was formed in July 1990; and since then, has sent information regarding RSD/CRPS to thousands of patients and professionals worldwide. The free information we offer will help educate and inform you, your family, friends as well as your physician regarding the signs, symptoms, diagnosis and the latest methods of treatment for RSD/CRPS.


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 (N I H)
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.


The National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI)
8 Penn Center, Suite 800
1628 JFK Boulevard
Philadelphia, PA 19103

For more information about the National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI). Please visit their website site at:
