Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a connective disorder, meaning it affects skin, ligaments, tendons and blood vessels. Ligaments are responsible for connecting bones to other bones, and tendons connect muscles to bones. Both of these structures provide stability throughout our joints. When tendons and ligaments are lax, joints are unstable, which can lead to injury.
If you or your child has been diagnosed with EDS call 602-808-8989 today to schedule an appointment.
Physical therapy helps safely strengthen muscles so structures around the unstable joints are strong enough to protect from hyperextension and dislocation.

“I am now more aware of my body, I know when to do soft knees and elbows. I’m a lot stronger because I’ve been doing exercises and strengthening my core. I know that I have to make my muscles really strong so that I don’t hurt myself more because of EDS. My exercises that Lauren taught me will help with all of that.” – E.H.
