Other Support

CRPS is complicated and finding relevant, practical information on it can be incredibly difficult. Education is one of the primary aims of Kiwi CRPS and we have compiled a list of public resources we believe will help. 

Information about managing chronic pain

The pain toolkit

Pain management services

These are some providers of pain management services. It is not a comprehensive list. Some you need a referral from your GP; some you can self refer.

Mental health resources

If you are in need of help and someone to talk to, we urge you contact one of the following numbers. ​In an Emergency always call 111.

All are staffed by professionals 24/7, 365 days a year.

All offer non-judgmental, non-religious and confidential advice.

Carer and family resources

Living with CRPS is not only difficult for the individual with CRPS but also the family of that individual. To enable support for families, we have compiled some resources for you to explore. Inclusion here does not necessarily mean we endorse them.

Solora also deliver home-care support such as health and rehabilitation services, including sensitive claims

Mycare are another provider of in-home care services including injury, disability, and youth support
