3rd Annual CSF Disorders Symposium: Connective Tissue Syndromes and Manifestations of CSF Disorders in the Brain and Spine
BROWN UNIVERSITY - PROVIDENCE, RI - JUNE 16, 2018
Physical therapist Kevin Muldowney
gives an excellent overview of physical therapy protocols in patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
He explains what PT can-- and can not-- do to help symptoms (like chronic pain) in patients with these medical conditions. He even describes some of the usual PT exercises that EDS patients should not do, because they may cause dislocations in other areas of the body.
