Joint hypermobility can be localized, occurring at a single joint, or it can be widespread, occurring throughout the body. Having slightly increased movement within a single joint does not necessarily lead to pain or dysfunction, but may increase the risk of injury to that specific joint. More often, joint hypermobility becomes problematic when it is generalized and widespread.

Here at PhysioElements, we specialize in treating generalized joint hypermobility, specifically Ehlers Danlos Syndromes and Hypermobile Spectrum Disorder. Physical therapy is the conservative treatment of choice for symptom management of patients with diagnosed or suspected connective tissue disorders. Physical therapy can help improve one’s quality of life by reducing fear associated with movement, improving strength and stability throughout the body, and creating pain management strategies that are effective and straightforward. 

Our EDS & Hypermobility Program here at PhysioElements is built in a way to increase accessibility to our EDS/HSD knowledgeable physical therapists through a multitude of tiered services. We have developed a comprehensive regimen that is individualized to you and your specific needs and goals.
