About P.A.R.C. Promoting Awareness of RSD/CRPS in Canada
The P.A.R.C. Promoting Awareness of RSD/CRPS in Canada is an organization whose mission is to support, educate and inform people affected by reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), otherwise known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). RSD is a rare disorder of the sympathetic nervous system that is characterized by chronic, severe pain. A portion of PARC’s mission is to educate RSD patients, their family members, the public and the healthcare community about the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of RSD. PARC’s other objectives are to educate the public and healthcare community about RSD in general; to provide support, encouragement and other services to persons living with RSD; and to fund research into the causes, controls, treatments and cures for RSD.
