Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and hypermobility is a genetic connective tissue disorder which can cause joints and tendons to take damage, dislocate and other symptoms such as skin to stretch too tightly, and hypermobility. Those with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome may have one or more of these symptoms.
Prolotherapy is a treatment for chronic pain and musculoskeletal conditions that involves injecting natural substances into the painful area to stimulate healing. It has been used to treat Ehlers-Danlos syndrome patients with success.
The first step in treating Ehler's Danlos Syndrome patients with prolotherapy is to have an examination including inflammatory blood tests, physical examination, digital motion- x-rays, ultrasound imaging, and MRI's. to determine if the patient has any other coexisting conditions, such as osteoporosis or an autoimmune disorder. A combination of specific alignments, dry-needling, muscle strengthening and massage result in significant pain reduction in a matter of weeks.
