Traditional Approaches to Treating Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome or Joint Hypermobility Syndrome: Although traditional medicine does not have a treatment for regenerating connective tissue and is therefore unable to heal Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, several options have been suggested, including exercise to improve joint stability and strengthen muscle; self-management to protect joints from injury, reduce pain and conserve energy; and surgery to correct fractures and dislocated joints. The problem with any of these options is that they do little to strengthen the loose joints in the body and, thus, do not alleviate the chronic pain that people with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome experience.
Caring Medical’s Approach to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome or Hypermobility
Dr. Hauser’s use of comprehensive Prolotherapy offers great hope to those with symptoms of hypermobility because it is designed to successfully treat the ligament and tendon laxity that accompanies EDS and JHS, as well as strengthen the joints in the body with Prolotherapy and avoid the aggressive arthritis that would eventually lead to irreparable joints with this condition. Chronic pain is most commonly due to tendon and ligament weakness, cartilage deterioration and/or joint instability. The safest and most effective natural medicine treatment for repairing tendon, ligament and cartilage damage is Prolotherapy. In simple terms, Prolotherapy stimulates the body to repair painful areas. It does so by inducing a mild inflammatory reaction in the weakened ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Since the body heals by inflammation, Prolotherapy stimulates healing.
Prolotherapy offers the most curative results in treating the chronic pain associated with EDS, as well as many other painful conditions and sports injuries. It effectively eliminates pain because it attacks the source: the fibro-osseous junction, an area rich in sensory nerves. What’s more, the tissue strengthening and pain relief stimulated by Prolotherapy is permanent!
Dr. Ross Hauser’s experience with treating Ehler’s-Danlos Syndrome: Our office has many years’ experience since we have been treating this condition for over 50 years, with Dr. Gustav Hemwall treating many patients with EDS for many years, as well as Dr. Hauser. We have seen patients who came to us in wheelchairs or totally disabled who are now walking normally and no longer disabled and go on to lead normal lives. They basically now live pain-free. Patients with EDS suffer with recurrent dislocations and typically have already had multiple orthopedic surgeries due to the dislocations when they arrive at our door. Some of these patient will stay overnight in a local hotel and have Dr. Hauser treat nearly every joint in their bodies. Typically they require conscious sedation due to the number of areas that are being treated at once. Even severe cases of EDS (and our clinic is known for handling really severe cases), can benefit from Prolotherapy and our approach to whole health.
Dr. Hauser discusses EDS: Here our Prolotherapy doctor, Ross Hauser, MD, Medical Director of Caring Medical, discusses how Prolotherapy can help Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and cases of hypermobility, including benign congenital hypermobility. In our experience, Prolotherapy can offer hope and pain relief to those suffering with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and full body pain such as fibromyalgia and joint instability.
