Why CRPS Awareness Month Is So Important

Reading now: 549

In March 2018 I was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), now classified as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), which is a form of chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg.

With just 200,000 people in the U.S. diagnosed with CRPS in the U.S., most people have not heard of CRPS, which is classified as a “rare disease” with no cure.

Therefore, the month of November is CRPS Awareness Month. Since acquiring this disability, I have had the privilege of creating pipeline programming for nearly 100 other disabled individuals.
