On Tuesday 9th October MW are proud to be hosting the inaugural London and South East Burning Nights Support Group meeting.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Burning Nights is a charity dedicated to raising awareness and supporting people affected by a poorly understood nerve condition, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).
CRPS can cause a person to experience persistent, severe and debilitating pain along with other symptoms. The condition may develop after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack, but the pain is out of proportion with the severity of the initial injury or trauma. Over 65% of cases are caused by soft tissue injuries. The cause of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome isn’t clearly understood and CRPS awareness in the UK is low. However the earlier a diagnosis of CRPS is given, the better the prognosis is for a patient.
There is no cure for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). It is a chronic and life-changing condition. There is a range of treatments available to help manage symptoms, including physiotherapy and occupational therapy, psychological therapy, medication, regional and lumbar blocks, neurostimulators, implants, alternative therapy and pain management programmes.
The aim of the support group is to enable CRPS sufferers, carers, families and friends to meet others in a similar situation and share experiences and advice. The opportunity to build a supportive social network can be a lifeline to those experiencing isolation as a result of a chronic pain condition.
We are delighted to welcome two guest speakers to our first meeting:
- Martin Leppard will be inspiring us recounting his amazing journey from a devastating CRPS diagnosis to competing as a successful triathlete.
- Stephen Cottrell of Devereux Chambers will be discussing how, from a legal point of view, attitudes to CRPS are finally changing for the better.
