About this event:

The Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) are a group of heritable connective tissue disorders characterized by joint hypermobility, skin hyperextensibility and tissue fragility. There are 13 genetic sub-types and one for which a genetic basis has not been found (hEDS). Other connective tissue disorders, like Marfan Syndrome, share similar features. Chiropractors are uniquely positioned to play a role in identifying and managing EDS, joint hypermobility, and other heritable connective tissue disorders. They should also be aware of specific precautions to take with this patient population.

Being able to recognize, assess, treat, and refer for multidisciplinary care is imperative for best patient outcomes. This seminar will provide a more in-depth look into the topics related to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome that Dr. Lasko presented at our July 27 event, and will also expand into other connective tissue disorders and related topics.
