New York Chiropractic Benefits Ehlers Danlos

Not exactly a spinal condition, but Ehlers Danlos is a body condition that may involve the spine and musculoskeletal system and be assisted by gentle New York chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic back pain specialists like your New York chiropractor at Dr. Gary Stefanick certainly 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 well-being of the patient. Dr. Gary Stefanick invites such opportunities to help New York 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)  Dr. Gary Stefanick recognizes Ehlers Danlos by such symptomatology.

Ehlers Danlos treated with chiropractic does well. One patient case Dr. Gary Stefanick read in a peer-reviewed journal highlights a young Ehlers Danlos female with chronic neck pain and low back pain who also experiences headaches and hand pain and stiffness. As is seen in Ehlers Danlos, she also faces weekly or daily joint dislocations and upper and lower extremity joint hypermobility. New York Ehlers Danlos hypermobility type patients realize 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. Several patient outcome scales detail decreases 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 – explains how she feels back pain relief with gentle Cox Technic flexion distraction, diet change, and exercise care. (3)  Dr. Gary Stefanick offers gentle New York chiropractic care for this type of relief.
