Not exactly a spine condition, but Ehlers Danlos
is a body condition that may affect the spine and musculoskeletal
system and be assisted by gentle Brooks chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractors who are back pain
specialists like your Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic definitely
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.
Soft Health and Healing Clinic invites these types of opportunities
to help Brooks 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic recognizes Ehlers
Danlos by such symptomatology.
Ehlers Danlos cared for with chiropractic
does well. One patient case Soft Health and Healing Clinic read in a
peer-reviewed journal features a young Ehlers Danlos
female who suffers with chronic neck pain and low back pain who also
experiences headaches and hand pain and stiffness. As is seen in Ehlers Danlos,
she also experiences weekly or daily joint dislocations
and upper and lower extremity joint hypermobility. Brooks 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 record
reductions in disability, headache and spine pain for her. (2) Another case of Ehlers Danlos - with some of the characteristically
noted issues had previously been diagnosed inadequately
with fibromyalgia and degenerative arthritis before the more appropriate
Ehlers Danlos diagnosis – explains how she experiences
relief of back pain with gentle Cox Technic flexion
distraction, diet change, and exercise care. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers gentle
Brooks chiropractic care for this type of relief.
