In the present study, the association between locus of control and religiosity is analyzed in patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) also known as Sudeck’s syndrome. A sample was evaluated by means of a probabilistic study of 80 patients (volunteers and under informed consent) from Latin America and Spain, of which 92.5% were women with a mean age of 41.8 years. A data sheet and the brief locus of control test for patients with chronic diseases (developed by the first three authors of this article) were applied. A descriptive and nonparametric statistical analysis was performed. The results obtained indicate that 80.3% of the sample defined themselves as believers (professing a religion). Likewise, 67.8% of the sample had a level of religiosity between regular and very strong, and 92.5% demonstrated an internal locus of control. However, this research indicated the non-existence of a statistically significant association between locus of control and religiosity.
