Individuals diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) grapple with diverse challenges often stemming from hypermobility. This manifests as excessive joint mobility and laxity, accompanied by muscular spasms, triggering pain. Internal structural laxity can result in complications affecting swallowing, gastrointestinal functioning, and more.
For a thorough evaluation of orthopedic and internal laxity concerns, a comprehensive assessment and consultation with Dr. Musnick are imperative. Dr. Musnick also discerns complex EDS variants marked by inflammation and widespread pain.
Treatment strategies encompass various modalities, including manual therapies, bracing, and regenerative injections. Notably, Regenerative Injection Therapy, utilizing dextrose and possibly peptides or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), reinforces ligaments, joints, and tends to tendon health. Such interventions are pivotal in alleviating ligamentous, joint, and tendinous issues typical in EDS. Ppatients struggling with EDS, potentially alongside Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), require tailored care.
POTS involves rapid heart rate and low blood pressure, often arising from autonomic dysfunction, potentially autoimmune in origin. Identifying triggering factors contributing to immune dysfunction enhances treatment effectiveness beyond transient IV fluids. Addressing underlying immune and gastrointestinal issues remains vital.
Dr. Musnick uses a distinctive approach by integrating Homeopathy and Frequency Specific Microcurrent with Functional Medicine principles, targeting autonomic and vascular systems. This combination bolsters the autonomic nervous system, especially the vagus nerve, while optimizing immune and gastrointestinal functions.
