What We Treat

A fresh perspective on treatment of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome as well as autonomic dysfunction.

Autonomic Dysfunction

  • high heart rate (tachycardia)
  • hyperhidrosis
  • gastroparesis
  • sleep difficulties
  • swallowing dysfunction
  • mast cell activation
  • brain fog

Movement

Disorders

  • dystonia
  • tremors
  • clonic/tonic movements
  • twitches

POTS

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome

  • changes in heart-rate
  • changes in blood pressure
  • dizziness
  • loss of balance

Cervical Spine

Instability

Digital Motion X-ray evaluating the movements of the cervical spine

  • DMX (see below)
  • craniocervical instability (CCI)
  • atlantoaxial instability (AAI)
  • lower cervical spine instability

What to Expect

  • Individualized care with doctor only
  • 3 to 5 day treatment plans (or longer)
  • 3 to 4 hours per day
  • Patient education
  • At home exercise program

DMX (Digital Motion X-ray)

DMX (Digital Motion X-ray)

The Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) is the latest in cutting edge diagnostic technology that allows the evaluation of the cervical spine while in motion. This is very different than an MRI or CT scan, which are static images. The DMX specifically evaluates craniocervical instability (CCI), atlantoaxial instability (AAI) and instability in the rest of the cervical spine.

HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy)

HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy)

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing in oxygen at greater than normal pressure. This oxygenates the blood and plasma, which leads to increasing amounts of oxygen available to the tissues, including the gut, brain, and muscle. This can help with fatigue, healing brain, and nervous system tissues, boosting immunity, improving circulation, and reducing inflammation.
