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 hundreds of thousands 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.

Abstract. In acute noxious injuries to the spine, usually the somatic sensory and motor dysfunctions originate an acute pain which is referred to as acute “nociceptive” or somatic pain (Figure 1). In occasional situations the pain may have a tendency to persist for months or several years after the original injury has healed. This type of persistent pain has been referred to as “neuropathic pain.”
