McHenry Chiropractic Benefits Ehlers Danlos

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 McHenry chiropractic care. Chiropractors who are back pain specialists like your McHenry chiropractor at Spengel Chiropractic naturally approach conditions like Ehlers Danlos conservatively and gently. Chiropractors also cooperatively care for these patients with any other medical healthcare providers and their treatment plans for the best welfare of the patient. Spengel Chiropractic welcomes these types of opportunities to help McHenry Ehlers Danlos patients like this.

Ehlers Danlos hypermobility type affects a number of systems resulting in a range of symptoms: pain (muscular, articular, neuropathic, back pain, neck pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, and headache) and fatigue (muscle weakness, unrefreshing sleep, depression, anxiety, etc.). (1)  Spengel Chiropractic knows Ehlers Danlos by such symptomatology.

Ehlers Danlos treated with chiropractic responds positively. One patient case Spengel Chiropractic read in a peer-reviewed journal describes 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 too faces weekly or daily joint dislocations and upper and lower extremity joint hypermobility. McHenry Ehlers Danlos hypermobility type patients recognize what this is like and welcome relief. In this case, chiropractic low force manipulation and soft tissue therapy were part of her overall treatment plan. An assortment of patient outcome scales detail reductions in disability, headache and spine pain for her. (2) Another case of Ehlers Danlos - with some of the characteristically noted issues had formerly been diagnosed inadequately with fibromyalgia and degenerative arthritis before the more applicable Ehlers Danlos diagnosis – describes how she experiences back pain relief with gentle Cox Technic flexion distraction, diet change, and exercise care. (3)  Spengel Chiropractic shares gentle McHenry chiropractic care for this type of relief.
