What Is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a condition that affects the connective tissues (skin, joints, and blood vessels) and can cause overly flexible joints, as well as abnormally flexible and fragile skin. Typically, this syndrome becomes an issue if an individual with the condition undergoes a procedure that requires stitches because the skin is not durable enough to support them. Additionally, it can cause significant abdominal wall laxity.
At Pain Zero, our expert pain care doctors will conduct a thorough consultation to evaluate the specific characteristics of your Ehlers-Danlos condition before creating a customized procedure plan that will yield optimal results. To learn more or to schedule a consultation, contact one of our offices in Central Ohio.
Treatment for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
The most common signs and symptoms of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome include overly flexible joints that can dislocate; stretchy skin that appears exceptionally soft, velvety, and elastic; and fragile skin that bruises easily and doesn't heal well.
There is no cure for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, but with proper treatment, symptoms can be managed. Options include analgesic and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, compound creams, ultrasound therapy, physical therapy, and minimally invasive surgery.
We manage all symptoms from POTS, mast cell activation, headache and abdominal discomfort. Joint laxity may cause pain and we offer many interventions to treat pain and discuss more permanent interventions.
