Managing Chronic Pain with EDS

Living with chronic pain is one of the hardest things that many of us have to endure on a daily basis. Living with pain while also coping with the multi-systemic affects of joint hypermobility, commonly diagnosed as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), is even more challenging. Some of the best approaches for managing chronic pain due to Hypermobility Syndrome/EDS are gaining a solid understanding of how hypermobility can effect the entire body, learning how to move and exercise properly, making healthy lifestyle changes, and finding a strong, positive support system.

Please see resources below for living well with hypermobility.
