Vancouver Chiropractic Benefits Ehlers Danlos

Not exactly a spine condition, but Ehlers Danlos is a body condition that may involve the spine and musculoskeletal system and be assisted by gentle Vancouver chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic back pain specialists like your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers naturally approach conditions like Ehlers Danlos conservatively and gently. Chiropractors also are more than willing to share care of these patients with any other medical healthcare providers and their treatment plans for the good of the patient. Vancouver Disc Centers welcomes such opportunities to help Vancouver Ehlers Danlos patients like this.

Ehlers Danlos hypermobility type presents as a number of issues that can be categorized as: pain (muscular, articular, neuropathic, back pain, neck pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, and headache) and fatigue (muscle weakness, unrefreshing sleep, depression, anxiety, etc.). (1)  Vancouver Disc Centers knows Ehlers Danlos by such symptom combinations.

Ehlers Danlos treated with chiropractic responds positively. One patient case Vancouver Disc Centers read in a peer-reviewed journal describes a young Ehlers Danlos female with chronic neck pain and low back pain who also experiences headaches and hand pain and stiffness. As is seen in Ehlers Danlos, she too faces weekly or daily joint dislocations and upper and lower extremity joint hypermobility. Vancouver Ehlers Danlos hypermobility type patients know what this is like and are grateful for relief. In this case, chiropractic low force manipulation and soft tissue therapy were part of her overall treatment plan. Several patient outcome scales document decreases in disability, headache and spine pain for her. (2) Another case of Ehlers Danlos - with some of the characteristically noted issues had formerly been diagnosed inadequately with fibromyalgia and degenerative arthritis before the more proper Ehlers Danlos diagnosis – explains how she finds back pain relief with gentle Cox Technic flexion distraction, diet change, and exercise care. (3)  Vancouver Disc Centers shares gentle Vancouver chiropractic care for relief like this.
