Not exactly a spinal condition, but Ehlers Danlos
is a body condition that may affect the spine and musculoskeletal
system and be helped by gentle Richmond chiropractic care.
Chiropractic back pain specialists like your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic certainly
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 well-being of the patient.
Johnson Chiropractic invites such opportunities
to help Richmond 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) Johnson Chiropractic recognizes Ehlers
Danlos by such symptom combinations.
Ehlers Danlos cared for with chiropractic
does well. One patient case Johnson Chiropractic read in a
peer-reviewed journal describes 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 too faces weekly or daily joint dislocations
and upper and lower extremity joint hypermobility. Richmond Ehlers
Danlos hypermobility type patients realize what this is
like and value relief. In this case, her
treatment plan incorporated gentle low force chiropractic manipulation
with some soft tissue therapy. 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 typically
recorded issues had previously been diagnosed inefficiently
with fibromyalgia and degenerative arthritis before the more appropriate
Ehlers Danlos diagnosis – depicts how she feels
relief of back pain with gentle Cox Technic flexion
distraction, diet change, and exercise care. (3) Johnson Chiropractic offers gentle
Richmond chiropractic care for relief like this.
