Ehlers-Danos Syndrome or Hypermobility


Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and joint hypermobility can result in joint pain and an increased risk of injury that requires careful management. These problems result from weakened connective tissues that allow the joints to move too freely.

In addition to the physical effects, living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome or joint hypermobility can also lead to problems such as fatigue and depression, particularly when you are experiencing chronic pain. It can limit your ability to function normally at home and work, and it can also affect your relationships with the people around you.

Holistic management is particularly important for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and joint mobility as it is vital not just to treat the pain, but also to prevent future injuries and to limit the impact on your life. Acupuncture, medication and other pain management treatments can provide relief, but physiotherapy, occupational therapy and careful exercise can also help by strengthening your joints and enabling you to function as normally as possible.
