Cycling for CRPS

Arrived at John O'GroatsA patient who has taken part in my research has recently completed a 1000 mile cycle ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats (UK) – in 21 days – an amazing feat considering the amount of pain she has in her leg. She used a specially adapted tricycle and obviously trained hard before hand. She is not on any medication, but she has a very determined character. She wanted to raise awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) – please message me if you would like to know more about this condition. She also raised about £3000 for the Pain Relief Foundation and other causes. Her thinking was that if she was going to be in pain anyway – rather than sit on the sofa all day, she might as well do something she enjoys i.e. cycling. I hope you agree with me that she should be congratulated on this and I look forward to seeing what she does next year.
