Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

This is a 42-year-old female who was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos syndrome. In addition, she was in a motor vehicle accident sustaining other significant injuries. Before seeing us she had at least four years of pain in her lower back, hips, pelvis both anteriorly and posteriorly, and pubic region. She had seen multiple physicians through the years for treatment and had many visits of physical therapy.

Treatment For Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

She had been on narcotic and antiseizure pain medication. She is being monitored by a physical therapist for treatment of hypermobility. The patient was placed in treatment and received prolotherapy for the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joints, hips, and knees, and we used platelet-rich plasma in the pubis, hips, and tendinous structures. She had approximately four treatments to each area.

The patient reported at the last treatment that she has noted increased stability in her lower back, hips, and pelvis to the point where it has been noted by the physical therapist on examination, and functionally she is improved such that her usual flare-ups, which occurred two to three times per week, would occur two to three times per month. The physical therapist has noted increased stability in the joints treated.

The patient continues treatment since she has not yet plateaued.
