CRPS and The Media

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a debilitating pain condition that affects approximately 1 in 3,800 people in the U.K. As a national CRPS charity, we are working to improve life for anyone affected by this complex condition.

If you are a journalist, member of the media or would like to write an article about CRPS, you can get in touch with Victoria Abbott-Fleming, Founder & Chair of Trustees through our Charity Administrator ( or by calling 01663 795055.

Occasionally Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is featured in the mainstream media around the U.K. and worldwide. Some articles have been contributed to by the charity as well as by the trustees including the charity’s founder, Victoria Abbott-Fleming.
