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 conventional wisdom and classical description of movement disorders point to the central nervous system (CNS) as the originator of movement disorder, it is becoming obviously that peripheral nerve injuries can also initiate and contribute to movement disorders. Even though such conditions are exceptional and rare as compared to the CNS movement disorder, there is evidence that the peripheral nervous system (PNS) can also contribute to movement disorder.
Descriptors. central nervous system (CNS), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS I and CRPS II), movement disorder, myoclonic jerks, Parkinson Disease (PD), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), tremor.
