Not exactly a spinal 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 OrthoIllinois Chiropractic naturally
approach conditions like Ehlers Danlos conservatively and gently. Chiropractors
also are eager
to share care of these patients with any other medical healthcare providers
and their treatment plans for the best welfare of the patient.
OrthoIllinois 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) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows Ehlers
Danlos by such symptomatology.
Ehlers Danlos treated with chiropractic
responds positively. One patient case OrthoIllinois 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) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic shares gentle
McHenry chiropractic care for this type of relief.
