Unite with NeuRA for Sixth-Annual Colour the World Orange™ for CRPS/RSD Awareness

CRPS is a devastating chronic pain condition, characterised by “unbearable” and “terrifying” burning or stinging pain from which there is no relief. It usually affects the arms, legs, hands or feet, often occurring after an injury such as fracture or sprain.  Approximately 75% of patients report suicidal thoughts, plans or actions.

Due to a lack of high-quality trials to guide management of CRPS, there is no single recommended treatment. This can result in patients being driven to seek dangerous and ineffective treatments, such as ketamine-induced coma or amputation, which can lead to substantial harms including death.

To help address this issue, researchers from the Centre for Pain IMPACT at NeuRA (Neuroscience Research Australia), will be starting a randomised controlled trial in 2020 for people with CRPS. This trial will be testing a promising new intervention that targets the brain and central nervous system to help reduce pain and disability of people with CRPS.
