40 years of helping those
affected by CRPS

Living With CRPS

RSDSA gives those affected by CRPS education, advocacy and hope! From signs & symptoms, to diagnosis, to living with CRPS long term, this section has health and lifestyle information for adults and youth living with this painful and debilitating condition – as well as for their families and caregivers.


RSDSA raises funds for research to find better treatments – and a cure – for CRPS. We also work with research groups and healthcare professionals worldwide to foster collaboration, communication and awareness. Here you’ll find the latest studies and articles about progress and breakthroughs


CRPS can be isolating. RSDSA ensures that those affected by CRPS are not alone. We’ve built a strong, vibrant community that participates in conferences, fundraising events, mentoring, support groups and other activities that help them take control of life with CRPS. Join us.
