Memoir Trial - Testing Two Promising Treatments for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition that most often affects one limb (arm, leg, hand, or foot) usually after an injury. CRPS is believed to be caused by damage to, or malfunction of, the peripheral and central nervous systems.
CRPS is an example of an over-protective pain system. CRPS is characterised by changes in skin colour, temperature, and/or swelling and sweating.
The MEMOIR trial is a Commonwealth Government-funded, randomised controlled trial testing two novel treatments for CRPS. MEMOIR will test whether combining medication with a rehabilitation program can provide better results for people living with CRPS.
The MEMOIR trial will be delivered remotely, via Telehealth, allowing Australia-wide recruitment of 160 participants.
More information on this trial and how to participate is available here, and for more information on CRPS visit the Painaustralia website.
