Learning to Cope with CRPS / RSD
Putting life first and pain second
With the help of this compact guide, anyone suffering from CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) (also known as RSD – Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) will better understand their condition and cope with the reality of living with it.
Prof Karen Rodham draws on a wealth of clinical experience to give tried-and-tested practical advice for managing this very complex and debilitating syndrome, about which very little is understood by the medical community at large. Ten first-hand patient accounts of living with CRPS illustrate just how wide-ranging the impact can be physically, socially and emotionally, and what has helped on an individual basis.
This book's hands-on guidance will be of great help to people diagnosed with CRPS and show family and friends how they can best provide support. It is also an essential resource for health psychologists working with CRPS patients.
At last a book that concentrates on people who suffer from CRPS and the hurdles they face, with positive helpful tips and ideas that help the sufferer deal with everyday life living with this condition. A book that every CRPS sufferer and their loved ones should read!

A little gem. Clearly written, full of insights and tremendously thoughtful. Real life stories capture the impact of this complex condition, but offer hope for the future. This book will be an asset to anyone experiencing CRPS or supporting someone with it - including health professionals.
