NeuRA < 1 mins read

Have you watched Netflix's Take Care of Maya yet?

It's a documentary released on Netflix earlier this week that's quickly started to trend and generate discussion about Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

Take Care of Maya covers the story of a girl living with CRPS and how an encounter with a hospital that misunderstood her condition turned her family's life upside down. 

NeuRA's Professor James McAuley is an expert on pain and CRPS. He is available for interviews to discuss CRPS, its treatment options in the Australian context and further elaborate on what is covered in Take Care of Maya.
