Integrated Solutions to CRPS | Treating the Whole Person: Optimizing Wellness Conferences

Integrated Solutions to CRPS and Treating the Whole Person: Optimizing Wellness Conferences were created for people just like you. Individuals with CRPS, friends, family, and caregivers of the CRPS community are invited to attend. The RSDSA, along with the help from generous sponsors, has assembled a friendly forum where you and experts in the CRPS field will spend the day sharing valuable information and exploring new solutions to help manage CRPS.  You will have the opportunity to talk to and network with others who experience what you do, day after day.
