Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a genetic condition that affects the production of collagen which is used to provide strength and elasticity to many of the body’s tissues. People with EDS tend to have highly flexible joints, fragile skin and may develop chronic pain. There are several different forms of EDS, and associated conditions can include craniocervical instability, mitral valve prolapse, malfunctions of the autonomic nervous system and, in vascular EDS, rupture of major blood vessels and organs. This lecture provides an integrative approach to pain management for patients with EDS.
