May Is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Awareness Month


Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a group of genetic, inheritable connective tissue disorders that affects many parts of the body. It involves varying degrees of excessive joint mobility and skin fragility and extensibility. Because of the vast spectrum of EDS, some of us may walk around without a clue that it exists, maybe only easily bruised, while others may have life threatening conditions.


Wherever you are in your EDS journey, it's important to realize that physical therapy can play a huge role in your treatment plan. Unfortunately, since EDS is genetic in nature, we cannot cure the syndrome. However, we can alleviate symptoms associated with it.


Physical Therapy can help by providing manual therapy, functional exercises, relaxation training, education, and reassurance.
