Kevin Muldowney PT presents a free Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) Exercise protocol for Physical Therapists. This Protocol utilizes manual therapy, patient education and slow progression of exercises to help stabilize all of the joints subluxations that are associated with this disorder.

The Video Goes over the following content
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, or EDS, is a connective tissue disorder that affects

collagen. Collagen is the glue that supports many structures in the body including skin,

ligaments, muscle, viscera and blood vessels. A person with EDS presents with global

pain and hypermobility in multiple joints throughout their body. EDS is a genetic disorder

which is autosomal dominant. This means a person with EDS has a 50% chance of passing

this gene to their children. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome may affect up to 5% of the entire

population. With this genetic disorder affecting so many people, you will probably have

to treat someone with EDS at some time during your career. The number one

misdiagnosis for EDS is fibromyalgia.

Treating a patient with EDS may quickly become overwhelming for a physical

therapist. The patient will arrive in your clinic with pain which seems to be everywhere.

They will also have other health issues such as POTS, gastroparesis, tethered cord or mast

cell, which you may not be familiar with. So, as a physical therapist, where do you begin

treating a patient who hurts everywhere? This is why I developed a physical therapy

protocol designed specifically for the EDS population. My protocol will teach you to

systematically go through a person’s entire body, assessing each joint and then

prioritizing which joint needs to be addressed first in order to achieve the best results. I

will also list specific manual therapy techniques and exercises which have been successful

for me in helping my patients decrease their pain. I have developed this protocol to

make it easier for all physical therapists to treat this complex patient.

My name is Kevin Muldowney and I am the owner of Muldowney Physical

Therapy which is located in Cranston, RI. My entire clinic is devoted to helping people

with EDS achieve a higher quality of life. I have been working with this population for

ten years now and have developed a protocol to assist other physical therapists in

treating the EDS population. My clinic currently treats between 40 and 50 patients with

EDS every week. With this large volume of patients, I understand all the issues that go

along with treating this population. My protocol utilizes manual therapy, patient

education and slow progression of exercises to help stabilize all of the joint subluxations

that are associated with this disorder.

Physical therapy is vital to helping the EDS population achieve a higher quality of

life. With my protocol, you will systematically go through your patient’s entire body,

strengthening every joint, then progress to a functional training routine. By the end of

my protocol, your patient will have much less pain and have greater function. I believe

that with my protocol, any physical therapist can help their patient with EDS achieve a

higher quality of life.

Please send me your email and I will send you the first chapter of my book for free

so that you can review it and see if it is a good fit for both you and your clinic. Thank you

for your time
