We hope to assist patients, as well as family, and friends of those who suffer from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or more recently known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). This organization was formed in July 1990; and since then, has sent information regarding RSD/CRPS to hundreds of thousands patients and professionals worldwide. The free information we offer will help educate and inform you, your family, friends as well as your physician regarding the signs, symptoms, diagnosis and the latest methods of treatment for RSD/CRPS.

Abstract.The following is a summary of our experience with treating complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) patients who have undergone spinal cord stimulator (SCS) treatment for one year or longer. The success or failure of the treatment with SCS depends on how early in the course of the illness the SCS treatment started, and depends on the nature of the original nociceptive pain.
