  Title Chiropractic management of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome: A case report
Journal JACA Online. 2010 Mar;47(2):Online access only p 6-15
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: To structure chiropractic care for the symptomatic relief of musculoskeletal symptoms in a patient with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).

Clinical Features: A patient with EDS presented with chronic dorsal, neck, and low-back pain. She also had joint hypermobility, skin hyperelasticity and spontaneous glenohumeral dislocations.

Intervention: Treatment included soft-tissue work and chiropractic manipulation. Treatment lasted for 7 months.

Outcome: The patient reported a noticeable reduction in neck, dorsal, and low-back pain during treatment.

Conclusions: Chiropractic care helped relieve some of the more common musculoskeletal symptoms in this patient and may prove of value in other EDS patients. Doctors of chiropractic who are aware of EDS and its associated symptoms may be able to offer significant relief in selected EDS cases. A large-scale trial of chiropractic management of EDS needs to be done to demonstrate efficacy or lack thereof.
