Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

Physiotherapy

The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a group of connective tissue disorders. 

 

The conditions are caused by genetic changes that affect connective tissue. Connective tissue is found throughout the body including our muscles, joints, internal organs and skin. 

 

Each type of EDS has its own set of features with distinct diagnostic criteria. Features can include joint hypermobility, skin hyperextensibility, tissue fragility, bowel and bladder issues, dizzyness and reduced balance.

 

Physiotherapy can help with assessment of your pain and dysfunction. Treatment can help you understand, reduce and manage your pain. It can help improve your daily function, strength, mental wellbeing and your overall quality of life.
