Not exactly a spine condition, but Ehlers Danlos
is a body condition that may involve the spine and musculoskeletal
system and be helped by gentle Chicago chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractors who are back pain
specialists like your Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care definitely
approach conditions like Ehlers Danlos conservatively and gently. Chiropractors
also are more than willing
to share care of these patients with any other medical healthcare providers
and their treatment plans for the good of the patient.
Chiropractic Care invites these types of opportunities
to help Chicago 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) Chiropractic Care recognizes Ehlers
Danlos by such symptom combinations.
Ehlers Danlos treated with chiropractic
responds positively. One patient case Chiropractic Care 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. Chicago Ehlers
Danlos hypermobility type patients recognize what this is
like and are grateful for 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 document
reductions in disability, headache and spine pain for her. (2) Another case of Ehlers Danlos - with some of the typically
recorded issues had previously been diagnosed inefficiently
with fibromyalgia and degenerative arthritis before the more applicable
Ehlers Danlos diagnosis – depicts how she finds
relief of back pain with gentle Cox Technic flexion
distraction, diet change, and exercise care. (3) Chiropractic Care shares gentle
Chicago chiropractic care for this type of relief.
