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 recognizes 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, her
treatment plan included gentle low force chiropractic manipulation
with some soft tissue therapy. 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.
