As a charity, we believe it is extremely important for all healthcare and legal professionals, as well as student healthcare, to be aware of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) so that you can fully support patients living with the condition.
To support health professionals within the NHS and private sector, we provide in-service awareness talks to all NHS teams across the United Kingdom with the aim of giving you the knowledge and skills needed to work effectively with people with the CRPS.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome affects 1 in 3,800 people within the UK and proportionately affects more women that men (3.4-1). CRPS has a range of symptoms that can affect patients in different ways. Understanding those symptoms and how the condition can impact a person is important.

Burning Nights CRPS Support believes that it is crucial that all healthcare professionals have a general understanding of CRPS, how it is diagnosed, treated and to be able to identify a patient with the condition.
Ultimately, it is our aim that when students join any branch of the healthcare profession, they are at least aware of or understand CRPS and eventually diagnoses will become quicker. Therefore, treatment will be available faster, hopefully culminating in a patient progressing into ‘remission’ or lesser and more manageable pain.
