RSDSA, founded in 1984, is national not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote greater public and professional awareness of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSD),also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). RSD/CRPS is a neurological syndrome characterized by severe and chronic pain. It is generally the result of an initiating trauma but the resulting pain is disproportionate to the injury. In addition to pain, skin sensitivity, abnormal color changes, temperature changes, and sweating are also common. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential to avoid disabling pain, but this syndrome is consistently under-diagnosed and under-treated. One of RSDSA?s primary goals is to educate physicians and other health care professionals and the community at large. a chronic nerve disorder that may affect more than 1.5 million Americans. RSDSA conducts the following programs: publication of RSDS Review, a quarterly newsletter, refers individuals with RSD/CRPS to support groups and treatment centers, funds RSDS-related research, provides a free, informative inquiry packet upon request,has published Clinical Practice Guidelines, developed an attractive 4-color poster to promote greater awareness (free upon request), exhibits at major medical meetings,and maintains an Internet web site, www.rsds.org.
