Dr. Andrew Medvedovsky, MD, of New Jersey Alternative Medicine will be sponsoring the annual CRPS/RSD Walk for Awareness on September 10 in Cooper River Park. Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also referred to as reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSDS), is a chronic pain condition caused by a dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous system.
Every year, the RSDSA raises money through a variety of charitable endeavors. The association uses the money raised to fund research that works towards finding better treatments and a possible cure for CRPS/RSD. Since its establishment, the RSDSA has worked alongside research and healthcare professionals to foster a worldwide community that encourages communication and awareness.
Those who suffer from CRPS/RSD experience one of the most severe levels of pain – patients often set their pain level at 42 out of a possible 50 on the McGill University Pain Scale. For more than 30 years, the RSDSA has helped those affected by CRPS/RSD. With the continuous efforts of RSDSA, patients living with CRPS/RSD are able to function better and live a fulfilling life. Those interested in registering for the Walk for Awareness can do so on the RSDSA website.
