CRPS Awareness Month

What is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Awareness Month?

November is CRPS awareness month! Throughout the month of November every year for nearly 25 years, the CRPS community and their families and supporters around the world come together to help raise awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, we know it as CRPS Awareness Month.

CRPS Awareness Month | Colour The World Orange Day

On the 1st Monday of November every year we also support the day which is known as Colour The World Orange Day™Orange is the colour of CRPS awareness which is why we ask landmarks, buildings, Town Halls and companies to change their lights to orange as well as asking you to wear or do something in orange during CRPS awareness month.

Many of the landmarks, Town Halls and buildings that do get involved are showing their fantastic support of raising awareness of this horrific chronic condition not only for those affected by it but also their families, friends, carers and of course their loved ones. 1 in 3,800 people are diagnosed with CRPS every year and we need to unite throughout November in support of everyone who have had their lives turned upside down by the condition.

Interested in taking part in CRPS awareness month?
