Patients and Physicians partnered to find a cure.

MISSION

CURE CRPS Foundation was created to raise awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) aka RSD, compile and conduct research to update the diagnostic criteria and staging of the disease, and identify and develop best practices and protocols to ultimately find a cure.

CRPS is a disease of the sympathetic system and the medical community has changed its name more than 22 times since it was discovered in the 1800s by a physician working with soldiers in the battlefield. CURE CRPS seeks to raise awareness of the disease both inside and outside of the medical field and find a cure for even late stage disease patients.

CRPS is known as one of the most painful diseases known to mankind, rated more painful than unexpected childbirth, bone cancer or field amputation. Doctors working with CRPS Patients believe that more than half of patients struggling with the disease go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed due to ignorance of the disease state of the sympathetic system.

CRPS patients live in excruciating pain which is often not visible to the naked eye. Even Doctors may not see evidence of the life-altering and often disabling physical pain of CRPS because there are no accurate diagnostic tools that visualize pain.
