Please note that we are unable to offer any form of clinical advice, including specific information relating to COVID-19 or vaccines. If you are a person living with CRPS, then we encourage you to contact your GP or local pain consultant for guidance.
Many patients with CRPS may be worried regarding their vulnerability to COVID-19. There is no evidence of any specific vulnerability for patients with CRPS or chronic pain. However, we advise that all patients with CRPS follow the Government guidelines on social distancing and frequent hand washing diligently. The guidance changes daily so check Public Health England website for current advice - https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/public-health-england
The Physiotherapy Pain Association have provided a list of useful resources you may find helpful to look at during this period when access to healthcare provision is limited due to the COVID-19 response - https://ppa.csp.org.uk/content/links
