The funding of reputable RSD foundations will support important clinical research and treatment advancements. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is part of the National Institutes of Health, a government agency. The NINDS conducts research into CRPS-related conditions, including emerging treatments for RDS symptoms. The RSD/CRPS Research Institute in Florida also conducts clinical studies. In addition, non-profit RSD organizations and foundations fund targeted scientific projects. These groups work to increase awareness of RSD and provide accurate information for those coping with the chronic pain syndrome.
Types of RSD Research Projects
Through ongoing RSD research, scientists are learning more about the disorder in an effort to limit disease progression. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy studies funded by the NINDS are looking into the connection between the disease and the body’s immune response. The role of peripheral nerve signals is also being examined. Some RDS research programs focus specifically on Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy treatments.
