Physical Therapy for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) at Inspira

At Inspira, we understand the challenges that individuals with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) face. These conditions are characterized by joint hypermobility, connective tissue issues, and a wide range of symptoms that can affect various systems in the body. Our dedicated team of physical therapists is committed to providing specialized care and support to help patients manage their conditions and improve their quality of life.

About EDS + Hypermobility 

Joint hypermobility is a condition characterized by an increased range of motion in one or more joints, making them more flexible than usual. While some individuals may not experience any symptoms, others may suffer from chronic joint and musculoskeletal pain due to the instability caused by hypermobility. Additionally, individuals with this condition may have soft and fragile skin, leading to easy bruising. Gastrointestinal issues can also be common, alongside autonomic dysfunction, which can affect various bodily functions like heart rate and blood pressure. Frequent sprains and strains are often reported due to the weakened ligaments and tendons associated with hypermobility. In children, hypermobility may lead to delayed motor skills development. Moreover, individuals with this condition may face challenges with mental health, experiencing anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties. Furthermore, there is an increased risk of hernias and organ prolapse in those with joint hypermobility. Early diagnosis and proper management are essential in addressing the various aspects of this condition and improving the overall well-being of those affected.

Comprehensive Evaluation & Tailored Treatment Plans

When you choose Inspira for EDS/HSD physical therapy, our first step is to conduct a comprehensive evaluation. We take the time to understand each patient’s specific symptoms, joint hypermobility, and any related complications they may be experiencing. This assessment allows us to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses individual needs and goals.

Our physical therapists are experienced in working with patients with EDS and HSD, and we understand that each patient’s condition is unique.

Strengthening and Stabilizing Joints

One of the primary goals of physical therapy for EDS/HSD is to strengthen and stabilize the affected joints. Hypermobility and joint instability can lead to pain, subluxations, and dislocations. Our therapists employ targeted exercises and techniques to build strength in the muscles surrounding the joints, providing greater support and reducing the risk of injuries.

Chronic pain is a common challenge for individuals with EDS and HSD. Our physical therapists are well-versed in various pain management techniques. By addressing pain, we aim to improve overall comfort and functionality, enabling patients to engage in daily activities with greater ease.

We strive to create a supportive and compassionate environment for patients with EDS and HSD. Our team is dedicated to listening to patients’ concerns and providing encouragement throughout their treatment journey. We work closely with patients, collaborating on their progress and making any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan along the way.

Our physical therapy services aim to enhance mobility, reduce pain, and improve the overall well-being of our patients, empowering them to lead fulfilling and active lives despite the challenges posed by their conditions.
