I couldn t believe that a disease that i d never heard of could do so much damage l.jpg

“I couldn’t believe that a disease that I’d never heard of could do so much damage.”

Parc s mission l.jpg

PARC’S MISSION

  • TO SUPPORT, EDUCATE AND INFORM PERSONS LIVING WITH CRPS/RSD, THEIR FAMILIES, FRIENDS, THE COMMUNITY, AND THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS TREATING CRPS/RSD ABOUT THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE OF EARLY DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT.


What is complex regional pain syndrome crps l.jpg

WHAT IS COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME (CRPS)?

  • painful neurological syndrome rated higher than cancer pain (McGill Pain Index)

  • 1 in 60 have lifetime risk

  • poorly understood, under-recognized syndrome, probable cause is nerve damage in C fibers (Oaklander MD PhD 2006)

  • early diagnosis is key, often diagnosed too late due to lack of medical education

  • patients often left with intractable pain


Mc gill pain index l.jpg

MC GILL PAIN INDEX

  • CRPS rated 42 and cancer pain rated 28 out of 50


Worthy cause l.jpg

WORTHY CAUSE

  • BRING greater awareness of disabling syndrome, earlier recognition through doctor education, health care professionals and community

  • THE EARLIER THE DIAGNOSIS, the greater the chance for a cure

  • SUPPORT research for better treatments and a cure, McGill University, Montreal


Why crps l.jpg

WHY CRPS?

  • chronic pain touches all Canadians (1 in 3)

  • no single successful treatment, needs to be caught early (30% diagnosed in 0-3 mo.)

  • desperately needed research for better treatments and a cure

  • better awareness of chronic pain syndromes (66% see 3 or more doctors before diagnosis)


Why cycle l.jpg

WHY CYCLE?

  • 2nd most popular sport in North America

  • solo cyclist in spotlight will bring importance and awareness to all Canadians


Why mc gill university l.jpg

WHY Mc GILL UNIVERSITY?

  • Canadian CRPS research lab at Mc Gill

  • distinguished senior research chair Dr Gary Bennett PhD, leading scientist in neuropathic pain and CRPS research

  • Mc Gill internationally known for excellent pain research

  • research will benefit all Canadians

Ride to conquer crps l.jpg

RIDE TO CONQUER CRPS

  • Brand new endeavour

  • FIRST KNOWN DOCTOR-CYCLIST FOR CRPS to travel in Canada

  • Speaks to importance of cause (see RSD CANADA Survey to follow)


Rsd canada survey 2004 6 l.jpg

RSD CANADA SURVEY 2004-6

“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored”.

Aldous Huxley 1894-1963


Rsd canada survey l.jpg

RSD CANADA SURVEY

  • CRPS: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome aka RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, old name))

  • First Canadian survey online January 1, 2004-6

  • Huge gap of knowledge about CRPS/RSD in the medical community

  • Approximately 300 respondents

  • Astonishing results


Rsdcanada survey results l.jpg

RSDCANADA SURVEY RESULTS

  • Onset of CRPS to diagnosis

  • No. of doctors seen before diagnosis

  • Self-reported pain levels of CRPS patients

  • Rating own success


Early diagnosis critical l.jpg

EARLY DIAGNOSIS CRITICAL

  • Early diagnosis ( <3 mo.) for best prognosis

  • If left untreated, can lead to lifetime of intractable, chronic pain

  • 0-3 mo. HIGHEST recovery rate WITH treatment

  • 3-6 months after onset: 80-90% recovery rate

  • SURVEY results are much different


Onset of crps to diagnosis l.jpg

0-3 mo. =29.24%

3-6 mo. =19.27%

6 mo-1yr.= 10.96%

1yr-2yr =10.63%

2 yr-3yr=6.64%

3-5 yr = 3.31%

5 yr-20 yr = 3.65%

unknown = 14.28%

only 30% diagnosed early when success rate highest

1 in 2 (48.51%) diagnosed in < 6 mo.

3 out of 5 diagnosed within 1 year (59.47%)

1 in 2 or nearly 50% are not diagnosed early

1 in 4 (26.25%) are diagnosed after one year

ONSET OF CRPS TO DIAGNOSIS


Onset of crps to diagnosis21 l.jpg

ONSET OF CRPS TO DIAGNOSIS


No of doctors prior to diagnosis l.jpg

1 doctor = 19.03%

2 doctors = 14.88%

3 doctors = 12.8 %

4 doctors = 14.53%

5 doctors = 13.84%

6 doctors = 8.65%

7 doctors = 0.69%

8 doctors - 0.35%

9 doctors = 2.42%

10 plus doctors = 8.3%

1 in 5 see one doctor

1 in 3 saw 2 or less doctors (33.91%)

2 in 3 patients saw 3 or more doctors (66.08%)

4 out of 5 see more than one doctor

WHY SEE MORE THAN ONE DOCTOR?

NO. OF DOCTORS PRIOR TO DIAGNOSIS


No of doctors seen prior to diagnosis of crps l.jpg

NO. OF DOCTORS SEEN PRIOR TO DIAGNOSIS OF CRPS


Overall pain rating l.jpg

OVERALL PAIN RATING

  • no one responded with 0 or 1 rating

  • 1 in 4 rate pain as a 10

  • 0-3 mild pain = 5.46%

  • 4-6 moderate pain = 22.82%

  • 7-10 severe pain = 70%


Pain rating scale 0 10 l.jpg

PAIN RATING SCALE 0-10


Overall success rating l.jpg

OVERALL SUCCESS RATING

  • approx. 1 in 3 rated success as 25% or less

  • about 2 in 3 rated success as 50% or less (POOR)

  • 1 in 6 rated success as FAIR - GOOD (50-75%)

  • 1 in 7 didn’t rate success, (likely would inflate very poor or poor numbers)

  • 1 in 20 rated overall success as VERY GOOD -EXCELLENT (75-100%)

WHAT IS THE CURRENT STATUS OF YOUR CRPS?


Survey conclusions l.jpg

SURVEY CONCLUSIONS

  • MUST EDUCATE medical profession about early recognition of symptoms and PROPER diagnosis

  • MUST RECOGNIZE PAIN: pain is grossly under-treated; pain education

  • Low success ratings show lack of effective treatments for CRPS


Conclusions l.jpg

CONCLUSIONS

  • When not caught early, CRPS is difficult to treat

  • Make doctors aware of diagnostic criteria, early recognition

  • More research to find better treatments is desperately needed
