Burning Nights CRPS Support is a UK charity dedicated to raising awareness and supporting all those affected by Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). We provide CRPS awareness sessions so diagnoses can be made quicker, evidence based website, helpline, online forum, email & social media support and an annual conference.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) formerly Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a poorly understood condition which affects many people in the UK and across the globe is a painful and debilitating neuropathic condition that affects approximately 5% of all injuries that occur. According to research CRPS affects 1 in 3,800 people in the UK which is approximately 15,000 newly diagnosed cases every year, which doesn’t account for those who may have been undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
It isn’t as rare as you think, therefore all healthcare professionals should be able to identify the condition, know its signs and symptoms and be able to formulate a treatment plan. As a charity we raise awareness about CRPS amongst the public, health & legal professionals by providing awareness sessions, so diagnoses can be made quicker & treatment started more rapidly.
November is CRPS awareness month and so it's a perfect time for you to develop your professional skills and learn about a condition you may never have heard of!
Come and speak to the team at Stand H52 to learn more about the condition and how to access our CRPS awareness sessions for HCPs.
