EDS Consultation Information

What is involved in an EDS Consultation?

          These appointments are perfect for those new to the hEDS diagnosis and the associated conditions that may go along with it, or for those looking for answers they may not be able to get out of their current medical team. This appointment will cover the basics of EDS topics and help provide you with a better understanding of the disorder, associated conditions, and the recommendations for management. You may bring questions and ask whatever you'd like, or we can explore your issues together. Use this time how you feel will be the most beneficial to you.

          Here are some frequent topics we discuss within our consultation appointments:

  • Education of hEDS, MCAS, and Dysautonomia

  • Exploring what issue is causing the majority of your symptoms

  • Understanding systemic inflammation

  • Dysautonomia symptoms and natural treatment strategies

  • Exploring mast cell triggers

  • Understanding gastrointestinal motility issues

  • Exploration of diet approaches and food sensitivities

  • Pain education

  • A review of your current physical therapy or activity plan

  • Safe return to activity (see our coaching page for coaching EDS clients and athletes back to higher levels of movement)

  • Appropriate or comfortable bracing

  • Stable positions of the joints

  • Possible relocation methods for your joints

  • Managing joint pain through more natural methods

  • Stress reduction methods

  • Making sense of a plan for care with multiple providers and diagnoses

  • Our 6 session package to use in 6 months is created to help those committed to making big changes in their health. This can be used as frequently as the client wants, or once a month to chip away at health concerns and create a plan for long term health. (We offer detox programs as well beginning January 4, 2021 for those intersted in deeper dives into health with larger commitments to health changes.) 

What is not involved in an EDS Consultation?

  • Medication outside of natural supplementation will not be discussed. All medications must be managed through your physician health care team.

  • Standard Orthopedic Physical Therapy Services we typically think of as going in 1-2 times a week (see our Manual Treatment section below for information on what type of treatments are offered in our clinic). We can review your current plan of care that you have with your therapist, but we do not recommend our services for standard orthopedic treatment unless your current treatment is not working. This is especially important if it needs to be a consistent process for you, with close supervision by a therapist. Our orthopedic treatments tend to occur about once a month with more focus on long term management strategies. We are happy to work with your therapist and discuss your case if you are having issues and are a current client of our practice as well. 

In Office Or Via Tele-Appointment?

          We offer appointments both in clinic and via tele-appointment. To look for available times by type of appointment, click on "book now". 

          If you are unable to attend your in-office appointment and are not able to cancel in timely manner to avoid a cancellation or no-show fee, we highly suggest you use the tele-appointment feature. Please e-mail us at info@elevationwellness.co as soon as possible to change the type of appointment.

          Our tele-appointments are done via video calls through our secure medical records system. When you schedule an appointment, be sure to schedule a virtual appointment and our system will confirm the appointment with a video link in an email confirmation. We do our best to contact you at your appointment time through our video feature, but when dealing with multiple appointments throughout the day, a short delay may be possible. If you prefer to not have the video feature, please set up with the virtual option and email us at info@elevationwellness.co to let us know you would like a phone call only, provide your name and appointment time, and we will email back with confirmation.

Are you calling from outside the US or are unable to find a time that works with your schedule for a tele-appointment? Please email us at info@elevationwellness.co and let's see what we can do for you!

EDS Manual Treatment Information

Dr. Patty spent over 15 years specializing in orthopedics, treating those with EDS. She clinically and personally understands that most dealing with this condition will eventually come to a time in their lives that they need more than the standard care provided by our physical therapist, even when our practitioner may be doing a wonderful job. Dr. Patty has spent the past decade exploring areas of care that may be beneficial to the conditions associated with EDS. She has been and will be working to "fill the gaps" of the needs of those with EDS. Below are some current and soon to be added therapies available in our manual sessions.

  • Visceral Manipulation (gentle organ work to optimize organ function and positioning)

  • Holistic approaches to physical therapy manual interventions (an example would be those that orthopedic physical therapy with standard treatment has not helped out, multiple orthopedic conditions that wax and wane together, difficult to locate true causes of symptoms, and long term postural and mal-alignment issues from imbalances over the years)

  • Diaphragm and breathing interventions

  • Cranial Electrotherapy (used in anxiety, depression, and insomnia; used in our practice when addressing the autonomic system) with units available for rental or purchase for home use

  • Heart Rate Variability Training to addressed Autonomic System balance and regulation with available HeartMath units to rent or purchase for home use

  • Reiki (energy work to calm the autonomic system)

  • Upper Cervical Proprioception Training with our head laser pointer system as needed (available after our upcoming move in July 2020)

  • Vestibular and Oculomotor Investigation and Therapy (upcoming Fall 2020) - beneficial for our EDS clients that have a history of craniocervical instability, chronic neck pain, post concussive symptoms, and vestibular symptoms.

Any of these therapies can be used within a holistic manual therapy session. You, as a client, can chose which you feel you may want to try, bring a doctor's referral for treatment, or ask Dr. Patty for recommendations. When arriving as a new client to establish care within our office, it is recommended to make a 90 minute first appointment for holistic body work as a discussion and evaluations are common to perform before starting actual hands-on treatment. For more information on our services, please visit our Holistic Body Work Info page.
